  1. mongorestore

    As per the mongorestore


    1. to preserve UUID must use drop collection

    2. if the collection is dropped then it will affect user/login access.

    This cascading effect makes it's impractical to use. We wanted to use mongorestore UUID as an idempotent operation, in case halfway things go wrong and have to start again then it's useful to preserve UUID.

    Also, in the mongorestore there should be an option to ignore/skip index creation, we were trying to bring data from the legacy app without indexes. It seems that's not possible at this moment.

  2. default country

    When I tried to register for Atlas webinar, host country selection was mandatory. By default it displays the USA first value in the dropdown and have to scroll down to select another country. It would be a good user experience if on the registration page visitor/user's country is identified and by default selected, this will prevent unnecessary scrolling.

    Also, a very annoying thing is that in order to register for the webinar have to agree to subscription. Subscription to email and other notification should be optional, otherwise, it's a bit dodgy tactic more suitable to some social media companies who…

  3. Privilege advisor capability

    It would be incredibly helpful to have some sort of capability that allows users within the Atlas portal to be able to see what privileges are needed to perform various actions. For example, we have users that are not able to configure alerts, or other users that are not able to add users to a project. It isn't always clear what privileges are needed in order to give users those capabilities. Either some sort of tool would be helpful, or very clear documentation on privileges that are needed for each capability within Atlas.

  4. Find filter autofill list should be Collection dependant

    The Clusters > Collections > Find option offers an auto-fill drop-down of previous entries, which is super helpful. However, it seems to offer suggestions from previous queries of all the Collections. This is not helpful, since Document keys tend not to overlap across Collections, so it would be even more helpful if the drop-down only listed previous queries from the selected Collection.

  5. Live Migration Should Include Database User, Password and Role Information

    Please provide the option to include database username, password and role information during a Live Migration. DBAs often do not have direct access to database credentials and have to collect them from the various development teams.

  7. MongoDB Sink Connector - Confluent Cloud

    Confluent cloud -Mongodb Sink connector requires Atlas whitelist IP to 0.0.0.0/0 which is a security issue on our side. Can mongodb partner with confluent and provide a solution that can be accessed through VPC private link? We are very interested in mnogodb Sink Connector for our solution so we don't have to maintain aws ec2 instances for the sink connectors.

  8. Aggregation builder history

    Add some way to restore old aggregations pipelines from history, that way, even if I accidently closed the UI. I will have backup.

  9. 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…

  11. Run aggregation pipelines on dedicated resources

    When dealing with large collections(my usecase is 2billion+) it would make sense to run these aggregation's on dedicated resources like Azure Functions(my guess is that currently the aggregation pipelines are run(and somehow throttled) on the same resources as the cluster runs.

    Not sure how much are the aggregations internally tied to how the data is stored(maybe they are somehow taking advantage of that) but if its straight up pipe with filters and aggregations on top of it, this would be a huge step to allow using Mongo as Big Data Platform, since it would allow reasonable scaling of the pipeline…

  12. Please could you extend the modify cluster API so that when an M20+ cluster is downsized to the next size the API command executes a sanity

    Please could you extend the modify cluster API so that when an M20+ cluster is downsized to the next smaller size, the API command executes a sanity check to see if the smaller size has sufficient resources?

    Return a 40x if the smaller size has insufficient resources.

    Many user have Production systems that don't need huge resources over night so smaller machine size is sufficient

  13. Make use of lazyloading, and use dynamic frontend components

    The cloud atlas frontend is very buggy, and not usable at all, even with a fast connection takes minutes to load a page on click.

    https://cloud.mongodb.com/

    I think we are loading all the components and required data from server side.
    Instead we can simply load the core components, and show a user friendly spinner, that will stop spinning once content is loaded via an XHR request. This would be so much more user friendly, just showing them a spinner (maybe estimated time as well).

    Currently the page stays blank white, which is terrible UX.

  14. 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…

  16. Clarify Python vs PyMongo

    When connecting to a Atlas cluster and selecting to connect via a Application you can select to connect with what "Driver" where you can select "Python".

    For new users, they might think that the Python library (https://www.python.org/doc/versions/) is what is being referenced when in reality Atlas is referring to the PyMongo Driver.

    For clarity, alter the UI from "Python" to "PyMongo" or "Python (PyMongo)" or something similar to differentiate between Python and PyMongo.

  17. ) User A login inot Mongo Portal 2) He selects an organization and sends an invitation to User B 3) Now in the Activity Feed menu we can see

    1)User A login inot Mongo Portal
    2) He selects an organization and sends an invitation to User B
    3) Now in the Activity Feed menu we can see User B was invited to the organization
    4)Before the user B accepts the invitation , User A goes and deletes the pending invitation
    5)Nothing is shown in activity feed.

    This would help products which are integrating with MongoDB atlas to get the true status of pending invitations.
