  1. Allows to share Cloud Provider Backup Snapshot with customer's Cloud Provider account

    What is the problem that needs to be solved? Add an option (as it was in mLab) that allows to share the Cloud Provider Backup Snapshot (EBS Snapshot [1], in case of AWS) for Atlas Cluster with customer's Cloud Provider account. This action is easier, quicker and cheaper for customers than manually downloading the Atlas Snapshot.

    Why is it a problem? (the pain) A) Operational pain: as of now (2020-02-18), if you require to execute disaster recovery scenario with restoration of your Atlas Cluster data outside of Atlas Clusters you'll need to create a Cloud Provider Backup Snapshot Restore job…

  2. Official ServiceNow Connector

    Would love to see an official connector to ServiceNow for automatic ticket creation triggered by various database alerts.

  3. Create distinct indexes for Analytics nodes

    To effectively use Workload Isolation, it is desirable to have different indexes on the operational cluster nodes than the indexes used to support analytics and reporting query patterns. It would be powerful for Atlas to enable different indexes on Analytics nodes.

  4. Allow users to download backup snapshots from BYO-KMS encrypted clusters

    Many clients download backup snapshots to keep an offline copy of their data either to restore it into their on-prem development environment or to keep an offline copy of their data. At the moment, Atlas does not allow downloading backup snapshots that have customer BYO-KMS encryption enabled.

  5. Autoscaling - CPU/ Memory Utilization duration monitor - Minutes

    Hi, Currently there is no option to initiate auto scaling during heavy workload/ requests comes and the cpu/ memory utilization is 75% for the even within
    - 5 minutes
    - 15 minutes
    - 30 minutes
    - 45 minutes

    The system has to wait for 1 hour to autoscale to next tier.This one of the concerns for the heavy workload applications.

    Idea:

    Add a custom duration option as


    • minutes also while monitoring the cpu / memory utilization

    Example : When a CPU / Memory utilization is above 75% for the past 15 minutes , move the cluster to the next tier…

  6. Splunk connector for Atlas

    We need a way to easily ingest logs into Splunk. It needs to be all logs - node and web portal activity. Ideally a Splunk connector would be provided but a stop-gap measure would be the ability to configure Atlas to write all logs to an Azure storage account.

    Lack of native log ingestion ability may be an Atlas deal killer for us.

  7. pause

    An option to protect the "Pause" action on clusters with 2FA would help to reduce the chance of accidental pausing of production systems.

  8. Email subject more specific for Alerts

    The email Alerts that MongoDB provide are very useful, especially the Oplog and CPU Usage. However, the subject of the emails are not clear and does not specify the Alert type. It is just a generic "Alert". It would be great if MongoDB can add "Alert Oplog" or "Alert CPU Usage" to the email subjects to make them much more clear and helpful. Thanks!

  9. "Chaos testing" for Atlas - simulate node(s) down

    The current "Test Failover" feature supports testing application/driver resiliency in case of elections. For additional testing, we want to be able to cause a node or nodes to be shut down and started up in a cluster. There should be selectivity allowing the entire node or just the mongod or mongos process to be shut down and started up.

  10. Allow Alerts to be sent to an Atlas Team

    Alerts can be configured to send to specific Atlas Users, but not Atlas Teams, which diminishes the value of setting up a team of users.

  11. Show max IOPS line on IOPS graphs

    When monitoring disk IOPS, it isn't immediately clear when we are limited on IOPS. Having a red limit line on the IOPS chart on the metrics tab would help here.

  12. Alerts Messaging Customization

    At the moment, it appears one cannot customize the messaging or subject line of the alerts. This makes it difficult to categorize the alerts. For instance, we would like to categorize alerts into different severity levels, such that severity level will help determine the level of attention that is paid to the alerts when they trigger. If it is possible to prefix or append some customization code and message to either the subject line and/or actual message, then a monitoring team can use the custom code/message to determine the severity or category of the alert when it triggers.
    Some alerts…

  13. 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…

  14. Provide an interface that can stream logs directly to Splunk.

    I'm trying to get logs from MongoDB Atlas to Splunk, and there's currently no native interface to do it, so instead of streaming to Splunk directly, I'm having to execute https calls in intervals, unzip them and then ship them to Splunk. Many products have interfaces to stream to Splunk directly, and it would certainly be handy in this situation.

  15. Time based auto scaling

    Our production server workload is less after 5 pm till the next day morning at 6 am CST times. We are running MongoDB in full capacity even on off-peak times. It's not possible for someone to manually downscale the cluster during off-peak and I don't think the CPU utilization based auto-scaling is working for us. I would like to choose auto-scaling between CPU based or time based as set my own time window and choose the auto scale/down-sclae.

  17. Improvement: Add severity to alert definitions in Atlas MongoDB

    The alert payload only contains status field with 'open' or 'closed' value. No severity definition option is available.

  18. Atlas Cluster Labels in UI

    With the Atlas API, there is functionality to add labels to various clusters like EC2. It would be great if that was exposed through the Atlas UI as well.

  19. Atlas maintenance Notification should include description of maintenance

    Whenever Atlas wants to do maintenance, it is sending email alert about the timing of maintenance. In addition to that we are requesting information about the nature of maintenance also like Mongo patching , BI connector upgrade or increasing no of connections etc. This will give us the information about the work and we can broadcast the same to our counterparts so that they can also use the product efficiently.

  20. Show Index Error on UI

    When creating an index on your UI, if the index creation gives an error, the error doesn't show on the UI, for example if you have a field of type string, and have a value longer than 1024 bytes, and try to create a normal index on this field, the UI will tell you the index it's been creating successfully, but when you go to your collection and see your indexes, this will not appear, but when you create it on the MongoDB console, it gives the following error. It would be nice to have this error shown on the…
