  1. Add visual information to indicate if a collection is capped or not.

    Right now there is no way to tell through the portal or Compass if a collection is capped or not. It would be helpful if there were some visual indicator in the Data Explorer if a collection is capped and if so what the retention parameters (bytes and max documents) are set to.

  3. If you select "Collections" on a database, and you don't have at least "Project Data Access Read Only" access, you get an unhelpful message

    If you don't have the access righrts to read data, instead of a suitable message, you get "An error occurred while querying your MongoDB deployment.
    Please try again in a few minutes."
    Totally unhelpful, as trying again won't fix your permissions!

  4. Compare and sync data across clusters

    I would like to have the ability to compare and sync collections across different clusters. The use case would be to support data migration between different environments.

  5. Change the copy document icon

    At the moment the Copy Document and Clone Document icon are conceptually identical (two sheets on top of each other with a diagonal offset to suggest duplication) so whenever I want to do one or the other I have to check which is which with the hover tooltip.

    It would make sense to change the Copy Document icon to a clipboard icon or something like that.

  6. Index creation should not be possible via UI if maximum number of indexes exist in the ollections

    Index creation should not be possible via UI if maximum number of indexes exist in the collections. Or a warning should be shown

  7. Data Explorer pagination or seperate tab for name spaces

    Right now the data Explorer renders all collections and this often results in time outs for very big deployments. To make the UI usable I propose that the side bar with all the collections be a seperate tab, paginated server side or otherwise. Thank you

  8. Refresh button like "Contact Team" button

    There should be a refresh button like the "Contact Team" button on the bottom righthand corner in the "database" section, so that users don't always need to scroll up and down, just to update their schemas

  9. Expiration Date on Database Write Access

    Just like the Network Access where you can allow an IP address to be used for connection to the database for a short time, I would like that same feature for Database Access write permissions. I would like to temporarily give someone permissions for X hours and after that time period, it reverts back to the original state, such as read-only access. I have to temp give someone permissions during release nights to perform operations.

    Example: "This entry is temporary write access will be deleted in 6 hours and reverted back to the original real-only state."

  10. Rename "collections" to "databases and collections"

    Please rename collections tab to DBs and collections. I was so confused as a newbie if my cluster name was my db name since there was no hint of where databases are in User Interface (UI). Then when I opened collections tab, I saw databases there!

  11. online/cloud version mongodb shell

    It would be nice to have and online/cloud version of mongodb shell. I am trying/learning mongodb. I have server in the cloud but to use mongodb shell I have to install it. My "desktop" is raspberry pi, and it's pain to install mongodb on it, because it's all compiled C++.
    Alternatively mongodb shell written in python or java would make it much easier to run on any OS.

  12. Functionality to have Atlas Data Explorer display the size of the largest document in the collection

    Currently, the Atlas Data Explorer UI displays only the collection size and total documents in the collection, but not the size of the largest document in the collection. It would be a nice feature to have Atlas Data Explorer display the size of the largest document in the collection.

  17. Clone collections

    Now, you can just delete a collection or add a new one. It would be nice to be able to clone a collection, or at least a part of it.

  19. More simple scheduled aggregations

    When we set up an aggregation in Aggregation Pipeline Builder, we can "Export pipeline to languages"..
    I think it would be great to be able to export complete, copy-paste-ready code as a function to be triggered in Atlas Triggers, as a Function, eg. on schedule,
    or any other simple way (no-code / low-code) to run aggregations on schedule.

  20. Please allow for showing most recently added to collection first.

    Right now collections are only shown first added first. I think it would be useful to be able to look at the last added first.
