  1. track collection size

    I would like to be able to track the size of our collections (i.e. # of records, total disk size) over time. It would be ideal if there was an automated way to do this with Atlas, perhaps with Charts ?

  2. Support node type or node tags as condition in MongoDB Atlas Alert

    Currently, the MongoDB Atlas does not support the node types [1] or node tags [2] as the condition in Atlas alerts. That would be super inconvenient for the following scenarios.

    Scenario 1: If the user wants to create an alert to monitor the specific node type, such as READ_ONLY node or ANALYTICS nodes, there is no convenient way to achieve it. The current approach must set up the alert by using the hardcode hostname.

    Scenario 2: If the user has some electable nodes and a analytics node in a cluster, and wants to focus on monitoring the electable nodes (workload),…

  3. create API keys that support linked orgs

    It is possible to link multiple orgs to each other. It should therefore be possible to use a single API key to access all linked orgs.

  4. allow API to retrieve closed project

    Even if a project has been closed, it would be good to see what the name was. After all, the project ID shows up in the bill, why not the project name?

  6. Leverage atlas search indexes in find and count operations

    Currently the documentation wasn't outright clear that Atlas search indexes can only be leveraged through Aggregation operation. It will be great if we can leverage them in find and count operations as well.

  7. Email notifications

    We have configured several alerts and are having them emailed to us. The subject line of the email alert is something like "[External]Alert - <CLUSTER NAME> - 2021-04-08T12:26Z". We would like the subject line to show what exactly is the alert for - for example - if the alert is for "System Memory: Available has gone below 3.2 GB", we would like the subject to include this information. All the email alerts have the same subject line except for the change in time. Please consider this request. Thank you.

  8. Monthly backup

    We would like to schedule our monthly backup and 1st Sunday of every month. Currently, this option is not available via the Atlas Console. It gives options like 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th...etc of every month but not a specific day like Sunday or Monday. Please consider adding this option as it will be ideal for us to take our monthly backup on a Sunday when the database is not busy.

  9. Database user credentials rotation with AWS SecretManager


    1. Similar to the HashiCorp Vault integration, you should offer the option to use AWS SecretManager in the same way

    2. Rotating dbuser credentials is a common best practice. Many people that are "AWS" shops chose AWS-native solutions over 3rd- party.

    3. We use SecretManager, so this would save us from having to write something of our own.

  10. Allow setting temporary IPs to API Access List

    When testing out API keys that are normally only run through CI/CD tools, I'd like to be able to add my local IP to the API Access List for a temporary time window.

  11. Active link on closed alerts

    Currently closed alerts are just a simple text card unlike open alert which does have links. This functionality should be available in closed alert as well.

  14. Allow creation of a free cluster (M0) through the API

    Through the API it is possible to create several projects within an organization, and as far as I understand you offer 1 free cluster per project....

    So, why not create the M0 cluster also through the API? (considering the limitation of only 1 for the project, of course)

    This would be of great help for integrations that automatically generate small test environments for certain applications that plan to use atlas as a database server.

  15. Display the Atlas-generated replica-set name in the cluster Dashboard

    This is an easy one, and it'll help a lot.

    Inconvenience:

    In the past, every time I created a cluster, the name of the replica-set was in line with the name of the cluster:
    e.g.:
    Cluster Name: asteroids-tracking
    Replicaset Name: asteroids-tracking-shard-0

    Now when I create a cluster, the name of the replica-set is a random set of characters prefixed by "atlas-"
    e.g.:
    Cluster Name: asteroids-tracking
    Replicaset Name: atlas-[randomChars]-shard-0

    This makes it unnecessarily difficult to find (in the Atlas Organization) the cluster referred to when I receive text message alerts. Mainly when you are in charge of so many clusters.
    Additionally,…

  17. Clone collections

    Now, you can just delete a collection or add a new one. It would be nice to be able to clone a collection, or at least a part of it.

  18. geospatial

    Could we please consider boosting MongoDB's geospatial capabilities by incorporating Turf.js into Atlas. I would hope this would be an integration similar to Lucene in that it exposes some functionality through the UI, and some through aggregation. It would allow us to gain a huge amount of functionality. https://turfjs.org/

  19. Add the possibility to add a description for IP's in access control list for API keys

    In the Atlas UI, allow to add a description in the IP's allowed to use an API key. This may improve security and ease management as it allows to easily maintain this list up to date.

  20. Security Key (FIDO2) MFA option
