  1. Granular Permissions

    Right now Mongo Atlas allows you to assign two types of roles to all the users: Organization and Project, and for each set it gives you some predefined roles.

    The problem with this is you can't have any kind of granular control of what permission is assigned to each user. (e.g. to allow a user to create a trigger through Mongo Stitch it needs the Project Owner role).

    This is a major setback as I'm giving my coworkers more access than needed.

    A good solution would be to have something like the database access control in this part so we…

    Thank you for your patience. Connecting Atlas clusters with GCP service accounts (workload identity federation) is in development and currently planned to be available in Q1 2024 (which is subject to change). The functionality will require MongoDB 7 in Atlas and initially will be supported in Java, Node, Python, C#/.NET, and Go drivers.

  3. Allow an "Any Database" option for actions in custom roles

    Much like built-in roles have the ability to target all databases/any database, it would be ideal if collection actions could also target any database. Similarly to how, when adding collection actions to a custom role, if you leave the "collection" field blank, it applies to all collections in the specified DB, it would be great if you could leave the "database" field blank too (or add an "any database" option) and have the actions associated with the role be allowed on any database.

    This feature gap creates unnecessary maintenance overhead for clusters with large numbers of databases. This is particularly…

  4. Project teams

    Hello,

    I think it would be a good idea to have team management at project level.
    We have many projects and members in our Atlas account.
    I'm a organization owner. The people in my organization use the Altas service. I create
    a project for them and give my colleagues the project owner authorizations.

    Project owners can invite other members. This is good. But it's a little inconsistent that
    they are not able to create groups or teams within their projects They have to manage the permissions for each member separately.

    We can't use organization teams, because they are located at…

  5. Support native Azure authentication for the DB, e.g. service principal

    Customers often want centralized permissioning for the database and LDAP is not generally supported well in the cloud. If a customer is using Azure, they want us to support Azure AD for database authentication. I believe that means using service principals

  6. Make session timeout in Atlas UI configurable

    Session timeout value in Atlas UI defaults at 12h. Allow it to be configurable per Project or Organization, with the minimum value being 15 minutes. All Atlas users within an organization that have been idle for the duration of the configured session timeout should be automatically logged out.

  7. Projects Organization

    It would be great if we could organize the projects and not have them all at the same level of organization.
    We could use this hierarchy to put rights, consult costs ...
    A bit like the idea of Azure's management group or GCP's "Folder".

  8. Migrate users and roles with cluster data

    It would be great to be able to transfer users with their credentials and permissions from our on-premises deployment to Atlas during migration to avoid having to recreate those users using the Atlas interface or API.

  9. Support for User Groups with Separate Authentication Configurations

    Currently Atlas only uses a single (flat) user group which only allows for 1 type of authentication per Organization.

    However if Federated Authentication is enabled, the authentication mechanism in Atlas is bypassed for the IdP based on the domain name of the user and the configuration of Atlas Authentication.

    This causes a problem if there are multiple groups of users who all share a domain name, some of whom are registered in an IdP, and some of whom are not registered in an IdP (for example users in 2 divisions of the same company).

    In this scenario, users who are…

  10. Share API key cross organizations

    Today, it's not possible to share an API key between different organizations (https://www.mongodb.com/community/forums/t/sharing-api-key-between-different-organizations/190785/13)
    It makes it impossible to restore snapshots from one organization to another automatically.

    It's very important for us, as we need this feature to clone our customers clusters into our organization

  11. Expose the killOp() action when creating custom roles in Atlas UI

    It would be nice to have the killOp() action exposed when creating a custom role in Atlas.

    I also think it would make sense to grant this action to the atlasAdmin role, but at a minimum I feel that Project Owners should be able to create a custom role that is allowed to kill ops that were initiated by other database users.

  12. Allow Pending Users to be Added to a Team

    When trying to implement Atlas infrastructure for Organization/Project users, the Teams functionality is useless unless we can add pending users to a Team. Right now, if a new user doesn't login for two weeks, we can't assign them to a Team until two weeks after the implementation was supposed to be configured.

  13. Authentification on Azure (IAM)

    Hello,

    We absolutely need a more modern authentication method than using LDAPS to authenticate users against the MongoDB databases that we deploy with Atlas. When will we see a modern authentication service at this level? Ideally, we want cloud functionality equivalent to AWS IAM but on Azure.

  14. API Key Expiration date

    We have a security reqirement that secrets must expire after 2 years.

    Therefore it would be awesome if MongoDB Atlas API Keys would support an expiration date.

    Somethig similar exists for the IP Whitelisting. Here we have the option to remove IP Whitelist entries after er certain time period. But for API Keys it would be better to have an expiration date and keep the API Key in the list even if its expired.

    In addition it would be good to have a daily notification once the expiration date is ahead less than 30 day.

  15. API Improvements - OpenAPI and more auth options

    The API should be documented with OpenAPI to allow better tooling.

    Ideally using the above OpenAPI spec you could auto generate a SDK or API client for popular languages.

    Lastly, the API should accept authentication options other than digest. There is very poor support for digest authentication by popular HTTP clients. I don't like trying to implement security protocols myself, as there is often some quirk I have not fully understood that ends up leaving me less secure than I hoped.

    In many questions online when searching for information about digest authentication, the person asking the question is asking about…

  16. Allow me to stay logged in for a long period of time

    I access Mongo Cloud / Atlas very frequently. However, almost every day I need to re-login using my Google account. It doesn't seem to "remember" my session.
    I would love if I can extend the default, and let me (and other members) stay logged in for a longer period of time.

  17. 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.

  18. Via API call invite existing atlas user & assigne them to project & teams

    in are organization we want user to have a self serve service that allow them to create project, cluster ,etc ...

    for now we can only automate half of the process, because we need the web UI to invite user & wait that they approve the invitation before assigning them to project.

    It would be great than we could, via API call, invite user & assign them to project or team without having to use manual process & wait for user to acknowledge the invitation

    thanks

  19. Improve 2FA and auth management

    Right now, there is no way to require Google auth or to require 2FA. The only way to enforce 2FA for a team is to check the team mangagement page. However, since some users may have only used Google auth to login, they will show up in this view as not having 2FA, creating auditing headaches. Please
    - indicate if a user does not have 2fa because they do not have a password vs just not having 2fa
    - ideally, add the ability to require 2fa and/or Google auth for all team members

  20. Backup for project user

    Hello,

    it would be good if we could better granulate which users have access to cloud backups.

    Currently only a project user with Project Owner rights can perform backups, restores etc. It would be really cool if some users, such as developers, could be given the right to work with the backup, and at the same time not have to have the Project Owner right, as it is not wanted to be able to add users, create and delete clusters etc...
