  1. Define via UI time windows on which the cluster is paused

    Test environment are usually paused during the night and the weekends. Currently the only way to do that is to automatise a RestAPI call or call mongocli automatically (e.g. via crontab)
    Would be nice to allow to define a time windows on which the cluster stays pause via UI

  2. 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…

  3. Expose Atlas Replica Set Tags in UI

    Atlas replica set members are pre-configured with tag sets: https://docs.atlas.mongodb.com/reference/replica-set-tags/

    There's no way to see what the tags are set to via the UI. It would be helpful to see this information.

  4. Credits API

    I need an API that will allow access to the items under credits in the billing page.
    This will allow me to pull this information daily into our master usage database to support our dashboards

  5. Add "Copy as JSON" to Performance Advisor

    In Performance Advisor, I can see sample queries for each index suggestion.
    They are formatted "nicely" for human viewing, but to actually investigate it, one would want to copy it as valid mongodb json, and run it with explain or analyze it in compass, or even just run it in a console to see how long it runs before and after the index addition.
    However, there is no way of doing that, and I have multiple times "translated" the good looking ui to a mongo query so I could run it elsewhere.
    This is a tedious and annoying thing (especially…

  6. Atlas - Preferences - My Date Format - allow 24hr

    We can specify date format but the time format is limited to 12hr clock. Please allow us to specify 24hr so the activity log and rest of the UI is a little easier to read. Thanks

  7. More granular permissions *for API keys*

    Allow API keys to have much more granular permissions (i.e: only the functions one may need to do a certain task).

    Also, add a security category in the form to report possible improvements for Atlas.
    And a UI/UX one.

  8. Support optional fallback to source cluster after cutover in Live Migration

    Live Migrate allows for migrations from non-Atlas clusters into Atlas by syncing data from the source to the Atlas destination, and then cutting over the application to direct workload to the destination.

    It's possible to test the application on the destination before cutover, but after cutover, there's no way to sync data in reverse in case unforeseen issues arise and it's necessary to fall back to the source (or another) cluster again.

    Having a "fallback sync" option could help with this.

  9. Allow customer encryption key validation time interval

    Currently, Atlas has a 15 minute interval where it checks access to remotely stored Customer Managed Encryption keys for the custom encryption at rest feature.

    This value is not changeable, and it implies a problem: access to encryption keys can be lost for longer periods than 15 minutes without that implying that the key has been invalidated by the customer.

    A perfect example of this was the recent Azure AD global outage that prevented all authentication to the Azure platform for about 3 hours (complete outage description: https://app.azure.com/h/SM79-F88/691d78). While the key used for one of our clusters was not…

  10. Log user Login to Activity Feed for Auditing

    When a user logins into the Atlas Portal this is logged to the Activity Feed.

    This feature would allow to better user auditing and identify potential security breaches.

  11. Ability to create more than one index at once

    We have migrated a huge collection with nearly 100million records into Atlas. It takes 3 hours to add indexes to it using the rollover strategy and we have tens of indexes to create.

    It would be great to simply define all indexes once before starting to apply them.

  12. MongoDB Atlas Provider for AWS CDK

    We use AWS CDK to deploy our infrastructure. Currently there is only a Terraform provider available to automate the MongoDB Atlas deployment. We would like to have such a provider also for AWS CDK.

    In a first step this provider should support:
    - mongodbatlascluster create, edit and delete clusters
    - mongodbatlas
    databaseUser create and remove users

    Later full feature set like in Terraform should be supported.

    Currently we use a self written provider. But this has hundreds of lines of code and means a lot of maintenance effort. For our teams this additional effort can be a reason to…

  13. Using replica set tags for invoice categorization

    Customer would like replica set tags added to the invoice as a column, in order to further categorize costs. In some instances, the customer has multiple products assigned to a single cluster, and putting the product name in the cluster won't suffice.
    The current solution is to use the Invoice API, and then call the Cluster API, in order to programmatically build out a CSV containing the cluster tags as an additional column in the CSV.

  15. Allow Billing Alerts per Project

    Currently, we can configure Atlas to send an alert when the current bill for any project is above a specific amount. It would be great to be able to set alerts for specific projects. This way we could more easily manage budget fors projects and alert project owners.

  16. Add Atlas users to existing teams even though the Atlas user is still pending invite

    Currently when we send invite emails for the organization we have to wait for the users to accept the invite before we are able to configure project level permissions. This often creates confusion and bad user experience; when users first sign in they are anticipating to see their projects but instead they see nothing until configuration is finalized.

    Please make it possible to add users to teams which are still pending invite acceptance so the user experience is more seamless and less confusing.

  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. Support Private Endpoint TO customer's VPC/VNet

    This would allow a Private Endpoint to connect FROM an Atlas Project TO a customer's VPC/Vnet (using AWS PrivateLink or Azure Private Link), for accessing private services like a private webhook for alerting, LDAP, and/or KMS

  19. OCSP stapling support for Atlas Clusters

    What is the problem that needs to be solved? As a user (MongoDB Driver) you'd like to check revocation status of X.509 certificate via TLS Certificate Status Request extension (also known as OCSP stapling) instead of doing outgoing HTTP connection to OCSP endpoint from a user (MongoDB Driver) side.

    Why is it a problem? (the pain) MongoDB Server v. 4.4.X introduces OCSP stapling functionality, however OCSP stapling is not enabled on Atlas Clusters with MongoDB Server v. 4.4.X.
