  1. Annual Snapshot Retention Policy Option

    I have customers that would like the ability to retain annual snapshots going back 5 or so years for compliance reasons. Currently, you can do this with monthly snapshots by retaining for 5*12 months, but then you have to store all the monthly snapshots in between.

  3. Option to restore one or more db from snap to cluster. Right now, it involves manual dump and restore

    Currently we can only restore full cluster from backup like snap using GUI interface. If we want to restore one or more specific db, it needs manual dump and restore from backup. if we have an option to restore specific db to cluster through GUI interface, it will be very useful.

  4. Email subject more specific for Alerts

    The email Alerts that MongoDB provide are very useful, especially the Oplog and CPU Usage. However, the subject of the emails are not clear and does not specify the Alert type. It is just a generic "Alert". It would be great if MongoDB can add "Alert Oplog" or "Alert CPU Usage" to the email subjects to make them much more clear and helpful. Thanks!

  5. Allows to share Cloud Provider Backup Snapshot with customer's Cloud Provider account

    What is the problem that needs to be solved? Add an option (as it was in mLab) that allows to share the Cloud Provider Backup Snapshot (EBS Snapshot [1], in case of AWS) for Atlas Cluster with customer's Cloud Provider account. This action is easier, quicker and cheaper for customers than manually downloading the Atlas Snapshot.

    Why is it a problem? (the pain) A) Operational pain: as of now (2020-02-18), if you require to execute disaster recovery scenario with restoration of your Atlas Cluster data outside of Atlas Clusters you'll need to create a Cloud Provider Backup Snapshot Restore job…

  6. Allow creation of Atlas organizations in Terraform

    there are really 3 steps for our dev teams to get moving in Atlas:
    1. create an org
    2. create a project
    3. create a cluster
    the first one is the only one that still has to be done from a console. if we had a terraform script to create an org in our account, we could trigger creation after approval in ServiceNow

  8. Allow an "Any Database" option for actions in custom roles

    Much like built-in roles have the ability to target all databases/any database, it would be ideal if collection actions could also target any database. Similarly to how, when adding collection actions to a custom role, if you leave the "collection" field blank, it applies to all collections in the specified DB, it would be great if you could leave the "database" field blank too (or add an "any database" option) and have the actions associated with the role be allowed on any database.

    This feature gap creates unnecessary maintenance overhead for clusters with large numbers of databases. This is particularly…

  9. Add "scheduled scaling/suspend" option for certain clusters

    There should be an option to schedule scale up/down or suspending/resuming at specified time & day.

    For example, DEV environments could be auto-suspended at 6pm and resume at 8am on weekdays, and be suspended all weekend.

    Production clusters could be scaled down e.g. from M80->M60 every evening and on weekends rather than being suspended completely.

    This would help save money but would need to be coordinated with the existing auto-scaling based on load.

    This would need to be at the cluster level since sometimes different clusters in a single project could have different workload patterns.

  10. Allow custom DNS hostnames to be added to cluster config / TLS certs

    Since Atlas clusters now support different sets of hostnames, it would be good to explore the feasibility of allowing users to add their own hostnames to the cluster configuration and TLS certificates such that custom connection strings can be used.

    One use case for this is being able to "wrap" Atlas connection strings, such that an application's connection string would never need to change despite underlying cluster changes (cluster being moved between projects, etc.)

    This could also be useful if you wished to whitelabel your cluster.

  11. As a Collections tab, aka Data Explorer, user I want to view, search for, create and update UUID and GUID field values

    The BSON spec includes support for UUID values, also known as GUID values.

    The format of UUID values are defined in rfc4122.txt. For example,

    f81d4fae-7dec-11d0-a765-00a0c91e6bf6

    Users would like to work with UUID/GUID values in Data Explorer as a fully supported data type, including search support in the RFC layout, ability to create new document fields of type UUID, support for UUID type _id fields and the ability to edit UUID values in existing documents.

    The mongo shell documentation provides this example:

    UUID("3b241101-e2bb-4255-8caf-4136c566a962")

  12. "Chaos testing" for Atlas - simulate node(s) down

    The current "Test Failover" feature supports testing application/driver resiliency in case of elections. For additional testing, we want to be able to cause a node or nodes to be shut down and started up in a cluster. There should be selectivity allowing the entire node or just the mongod or mongos process to be shut down and started up.

  13. Live Migrate from Backup or Snapshot

    If I already have Cloud Manager backups, or can take an EBS snapshot, I want to be able to quickly Live Migrate this replica set to minimize migration time and load on my existing infrastructure.

  14. More functionalities in Collection (Data Explorer) Tab in Atlas UI

    Here are some suggested functionalities
    - Import and export of bulk documents.
    - Quickly filter and sort the required documents. (This is achievable in Compass but not in Atlas UI)

  15. 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…

  17. Live Migrate modal: Allow users to point and click to select another Atlas source cluster

    It is often practical to Live Migrate from one Atlas cluster to another Atlas cluster (e.g. to create another staging environment if backups are not enabled on the source, or migrate a production/staging environment to another dedicated project with minimal downtime).

    Currently, the Live Migrate modal requires connection details from the source cluster, including the hostname of the primary, port, etc. Validation will fail if there are typos/errors in these inputs.

    It would be easier to have a point-and-click option to "Migrate from another Atlas cluster" -- it could be a drop-down menu with names of other Atlas clusters in…

  18. Allow log level to be configured per cluster/node

    Atlas clusters don't support the setParameter command and, as a result, users aren't able to configure log levels. I understand the reasoning behind not exposing permissions to run setParameter to DB users so, in lieu of that, it would really helpful if Atlas users were able to configure log levels through the Atlas UI, preferably at the Node or Cluster level.

    Thanks!

  19. 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
