  1. 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.

  2. Provide local ssd instances in GCP

    In terms of throughput it would be great to be able to configure an Atlas cluster based on local ssd / nvme GCP VM instances.

  3. Atlas UI to manage and spin up on-prem clusters

    CSM submitting on behalf of customer

    Spinning up new clusters for on-prem deployments through the Atlas UI would save time and efforts for DBAs managing MongoDB deployments

  4. Ability to apply the same settings to multiple projects

    As described in support case #00739901, we have exceeded the 50 limit of clusters in our production project.

    We are going to have a lot of new clusters in the coming year, and they all need to be in the production environment.

    There should be a way either to add more clusters to one project or to share the same settings between multiple production projects for growing customers of MongoDB like us.

  5. Allow multiple private endpoints (Private Link Service) per region in multi-region cluster

    Some situations require multiple private endpoints (using the Private Link service) to be created per region. This is not currently supported for multi-region replica sets.

    One scenario is especially for when there is a shared VPC/VNet for initial transit from on-prem to cloud plus another VPC/VNet for an application. Both of those VPC/VNets would want a Private Endpoint to connect directly to the Atlas cluster. Even if it is possible (sometimes is not), routing traffic via multiple VPC/VNets would mean 3 hops to Atlas from on-prem

  7. Include cluster labels with Invoices API response.

    Using the Invoices API to aggregate cluster costs by label involves cross-referencing the Cluster API. Including cluster label information as part of the Invoices response would eliminate this extra step.

  8. Compact collection from UI

    Compacting of a collection directly from the MongoDB Atlas website UI.

    No need to run CLI commands and changing primary database.

    Making regular maintenance easier.

  9. Create alarms base on events + Add control policies

    Events (in the perimeter: organization, projects, cluster) are useful for monitoring activities. But it would be very useful to be able to set the alarm on these events. The goal is to be informed when certain actions occur.

    The best is to be able to have a configuration control policy. Especially to control security, network configuration, etc ...

    For example:
    - Be able to avoid the use of user scram.
    - Be able to avoid using unauthorized IP addresses
    - Be able to avoid changing the configuration of access to database data (DataExplorer) from the Atlas portal

  10. Set schedules for pausing clusters

    It could be incredibly helpful if we had a way to set a schedule to pause any given cluster as well as a schedule to un-pause it. This would help with cost savings and would allow to shutdown development clusters on weekends, after hours and holidays.

  11. LDAP support for Atlas Organization

    This is a request to support LDAP for Atlas Organizations, not just Atlas Projects. The reason would be for easier access management - when someone leaves the company and their access to the Atlas Org (or in general cloud.mongodb.com / the Atlas portal) needs to be revoked, it would be easier to manage this from the LDAP console.

    An alternate solution would be the ability to add IP addresses to an access list at the Atlas Org level (not just Project level.) Then when someone leaves the company, their IP address could easily be removed from the Atlas Org and…

  12. Expose Collection TTL in the UI

    It is very difficult to discover the TTL of a given collection. It would be great if the TTLs for each collection was visible in the collection UI.

  13. Show index build percentage in the UI

    During an index build from atlas the only status update you see is:
    "We are deploying your changes (current action: configuring MongoDB)"

    When checking the logs of the replicaset memeber you can actually see the percentage of completion on that member of the replicaset:

    2020-11-25T11:15:44.002+0000 I - [conn12] Index Build: 54798100/206784433 26%

    It would be nice to have this percentage displayed through the UI.

  14. Resync progress bar

    Our Mongo cluster has had to resync. It would be great to get some kind of time estimate or progress bar to know how far it's got in resyncing so we can let our research team know when the cluster will be ready again.

  15. please offer a way to delete the content of a collection

    I wish there were a way to allow a user to delete the contents of a collection within a database, that allows the collection to continue. Essentially I want an easy way to empty a collection to allow new data to be filled in its place.

  16. Deactivate use of charts on org-level

    As charts meta data are processed only on US servers, a toggle to forbid the usage of charts for autonomous teams would be helpful, considering GDPR requirements

  17. Option to configure an on-prem hidden replica set member for an Atlas replica set

    As described in https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/tutorial/configure-a-hidden-replica-set-member/, on-prem mongodb deployments allow to configure a hidden replica set members which are good for workloads with different usage patterns from the other members in the replica set. It would be useful to have similar functionality for Atlas replica sets.
    In fact, to elaborate, being able to configure an on-prem hidden replica set member for an Atlas replicaset will help in meeting regulatory requirements where organisations are required to host a near real time mirror of data on on-premises.

  18. Implement create-before-destroy when migrating NVME instances

    When triggering a cross-region migration Atlas immediately degrades a cluster by going to N-1 nodes prior to creating a replacement node in the new region.

    When using NVME instances, this violates the agreed upon replication depth. Once the NVME instance in the source region is destroyed, there are only N-1 copies of the data left, as there is no EBS backing.

    NVME target instances should be brought up as {hidden=true, priority=0} until leaving STARTUP2 and entering SECONDARY. Once this occurs, the target instance should be brought to {hidden=false, priority=P}, and a source instance hidden, removed after a quiescence period, and…

  19. export list of database users

    For audit purposes, I would like to have an export function to create a list of database users. The current view of database access contains the name and the associated roles. Having this information as a csv or pdf file would make it easier to deliver this access information to compliance teams.

  20. Have the ability to configure cache_size

    I'd like to see the ability to modify the cache size setting for a given cluster. MongoDB has a straight forward pattern of using 50% of the memory for cache size. However, Atlas has scaled that down to (RAM - 1 GB) / 2. Apparently that was done to allow for extra memory for other Atlas features like BI Connector and Atlas Search. However, we currently aren't using those features, so we're stuck with the lower cache size.

    It would be great to have the ability to get the most of our servers instead of being limited based on logic…
