  1. Create databases and collections via API thorough Terraform

    Create databases (DB) and collections via API thorough Terraform after the cluster has been created in Atlas. This would provide the ease of writing and running it in a single script before any data is loaded.

  2. A terraform resource for managing user access to the console

    We have a platform (as code using Terraform) where we integrate Mongo Atlas in AWS. We have multiple teams with various privileges who access the Mongo Atlas console daily basis. We would always like to manage the users in our version control. As Terraform is one of the best infrastructure configuration tools, we would like to have a terraform resource in order to manage the users via.

  3. Allow creation of Atlas organizations in Terraform

    there are really 3 steps for our dev teams to get moving in Atlas:
    1. create an org
    2. create a project
    3. create a cluster
    the first one is the only one that still has to be done from a console. if we had a terraform script to create an org in our account, we could trigger creation after approval in ServiceNow

  4. Adding indexes using terraform

    Ability to add indexes after new clusters are created using Terraform and data has been loaded. It will help in more automation and auto recovery.

  5. Add Terraform support for Realm Apps

    Realm Apps (https://docs.mongodb.com/realm/get-started/create-realm-app/) can't be managed via Terraform. This would be a great addition to the provider!

  6. Atlas does not automatically rotate the Key Version Resource ID used for Google Cloud key management.

    Basically, when a new version of the key is being created in GCP, Atlas Terraform provider does not accept primary or newest value for version argument.

    We cannot use the data source to filter on the version that is primary or the "newest" https://registry.terraform.io/providers/hashicorp/google/latest/docs/data-sources/kms_crypto_key_version, it will default to 1. We have to specify the version #. But we need this to be fully automated.

    I found this issue which seems to show the same situation, but it’s from 2020…
    https://github.com/hashicorp/terraform-provider-google/issues/5688

    MongoDB Support mentioned we could use the AWS KMS which supports automatic key rotation.

    So we are suggesting implementing…

  7. Ability to create/update a temporary Database user using terraform

    Hi
    Presently, we can only create permanent database users via Terraform Modules. The creation of temporary DB users is only allowed through the UI or by consuming MongoDb Atlas's APIs. In addition, the "deleteAfterDate" property is only applicable for a temporary user already existent. The point is to avoid using "null_resource" and "local-exec" in our Terraform Modules.

  9. Standardize case for region values

    Depending on the resource, the case for the region value changes from uppercase with underscores (US_ EAST _1) to lowercase with dashes (us-east-1). This presents an unnecessary challenge when working with the provider. It would be much cleaner, easier to work with, and prone to fewer errors if all resources accepted us-east-1.

  10. Provide an option to disable password auth for database users

    Currently, it is not possible securely create a user in a terraform DevOps pipeline, since "Passwords may show up in Terraform related logs" according to the documentation. If the password was no longer required to create a user, we could avoid this issue by only using certificate authentication.

    For instance, the default Query Targeting alert is set at a 1000:1 ratio. I would like to have the default alert set to 5000:1 for a project via terraform.

  14. A way to enable the Data API via Terraform

    I just noticed that MongoDB Data API is no longer in beta (Congrats!). It think it would be quite useful if the there was a way to enable this option programmatically via Terraform.

  16. Make the app_id optional in the mongodbatlas_event_trigger resource when an aws_eventbridge event processor is defined

    Currently, when you define a trigger that uses the AWS Eventbridge via the UI it auto creates a realm App that links the DB change to the event bridge.

    However, with the mongodbatlaseventtrigger resource you have to manually defined an empty realm app and give the resource the app_id of that empty app.

    This is obviously not a 100% automated process.

    This could be, if the provider created the empty realm app by itself, then referencing the created app app_id.

    This would only be needed:
    1. when the appid is not provided
    2. the following attribute was

  20. Add Terraform resource for functions

    Would be great to have a terraform resource like mongodbatlas_function.
    Was mentioned here https://github.com/mongodb/terraform-provider-mongodbatlas/issues/828 but I didn't find the idea mentioned there, so I added this one here.
