  2. take snapshots off of the activity tab for maintenance.

    When I select the maintenance filter on the activity feed all the daily snapshots show up. I feel like there should be a backup screen that shows all the snapshots on the activity feed. this would make the maintenance screen more precise and relevant.

    . The maintenance screen should only show what software maintenance goes on the atlas clusters. This should also include all the release fixes. so, I do not have to go to your
    https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/release-notes/software releases page.

    It is very hard to tell what maintenance will be applied in a given time period. We have timeframes to apply…

  3. CronJob Live migration to second cluster in second project

    It would be great to have a feature that schedule live migration from a replica set of a PROD cluster to a DEV cluster directly in ATLAS.

    The plus of this solution are :
    - I dont need a dedicated server to do this job on my side (deploy it, configure it, script it, open network/port, etc ..)
    - I will not have to dump the whole databases from the cloud then uploading it afterwards (can be long)
    - Gain from outbound price in the cloud (more for you this one)

  4. efficient backup restore between MongoAtlas Projects

    Hello,

    currently, when we restore a SNAPSHOT from one cluster to another cluster in the same MongoAtas Project (example from "production" project to "production" project), this is very efficient (several minutes).

    On the other hand, if we execute the same backup restore from one cluster to another cluster on another MongoAtlas project (example : from "production" project to "staging" project), this is much less efficient and it will take several hours (instead of several minutes above).

    This is very efficient in the same MongoAtlas project because it will use cloud provider system using hard disk management.

    Could you improve efficiency…

  5. Provide a default alert for projects using Cloud Backup

    Given how import backups are to an enterprise's business continuity plans, the set of common sense default alerts set by Atlas should include an alert for Cloud Backup on projects with Cloud Backup enabled. Either "CPS snapshot has been stuck in queue for 1 hour" or "Snapshot schedule feel behind by 1 hour" would suffice.

  6. Helpful error message when restoring backup

    When I recently attempted to restore a db backup I got a cryptic error message stating "Error: Cluster Not Found"--which was extremely confusing considering that I pressed the restore button in the backup options. After some great tech support, I added my user as project owner and everything worked fine.

    Please make the error message clearer in both the Restore and Download backup scenarios.

  7. Provide a granular mechanism to disconnect and disable all active sessions during a planned maintenance.

    Provide a per cluster mechanism to shut off client access for restore operations.

  8. Dynamically Calculate Timestamp Limits for Continuous Backup Restore (via OPLOG Timestamp)

    Currently, you can put in a OPLOG TIMESTAMP value that exceeds the maximum / minimum value for the Continuous Backup Time Window.

    For example, on the "Date & Time" tab of the "Point in Time Restore" menu, you are given a warning that specifies: "You can only restore to a specific point in time after MM/DD/YYYY HH:MM"

    This should be added to the "OPLOG TIMESTAMP" tab where a warning could be given such as "You can only restore to a specific point in time after XXXXXXXXXX" (Epoch time).

    As such, you should enforce data form validation so that a user…

  9. regular

    Restore snapshots to different clusters.

    I have a staging environment cluster whose data I'd like updated daily with anything new from my production cluster.

    Currently I do a dump and restore, but this is slow because it gets piped externally.

    Ideally I'd be able to restore a production snapshot to my staging cluster through a script running on a cron. Whether than is API or CLI doesn't matter.

  10. Add colors to Backup times

    Hi can I suggest a feature to the developers? Can the developers add colors to the Backup times? Because I have accidentally Backup an instance at 3:21 PM instead of a 3:21 AM I wanted. The colors will definitely help prevent such accidents from happening. It would also be nice if the developers can ensure that Backup times are not the same for AM and PM. Thanks!

  11. Add a note in the cluster builder UI where to find the Cloud Provider Snapshot

    Add a note in the cluster builder UI where to find the Cloud Provider Snapshot (i.e. Cluster name > Backup tab). Customer who are used to using Continuous backup might not realize that there's a difference and panic when they see their backups 'gone' (especially if they have multiple clusters in a project, some of which still use Continuous backup).

  13. Add more details on backup policy changes in Atlas activity feed

    In Atlas when you search for "Cloud provider snapshot schedule updated for cluster" in the project's Activity page, it doesn't provide any details on schedule policy changes information, the customer have to call the snapshot schedule API to get the policy schedule change information. However, the API call output still doesn't have any history change information for audit purpose.

    Please consider add that information to the Atlas activity feed page.

  14. Ability to download backups without requiring a token with write permissions

    I want to automate downloading the most recent continuous backup snapshot to a local machine nightly. The guys on your intercom help chat were pretty helpful in pointing me at delivery.url here:

    https://docs.atlas.mongodb.com/reference/api/restore-jobs-create-one/

    But I was surprised that in order to download a backup, I need to use a token with write permission. It would be great for security reasons if the machine I use to download backups could do so without needing to have a write token.

  15. Improve the Interface for backup menu

    Backup options display in different places for M5 and M40 instances. I think this is misleading and not consistent. Also, the form for backup restoring for M5 instances may easily lead to a catastrophe. That's because even when you explicitly enter a specific cluster, you can still select another cluster to restore to. Here is a video that I've recorded to explain my point of view:
