  1. 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!

  2. Allow Alerts to be sent to an Atlas Team

    Alerts can be configured to send to specific Atlas Users, but not Atlas Teams, which diminishes the value of setting up a team of users.

  3. 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.

  4. Splunk connector for Atlas

    We need a way to easily ingest logs into Splunk. It needs to be all logs - node and web portal activity. Ideally a Splunk connector would be provided but a stop-gap measure would be the ability to configure Atlas to write all logs to an Azure storage account.

    Lack of native log ingestion ability may be an Atlas deal killer for us.

  5. Improvement: Add severity to alert definitions in Atlas MongoDB

    The alert payload only contains status field with 'open' or 'closed' value. No severity definition option is available.

  6. Atlas Cluster Labels in UI

    With the Atlas API, there is functionality to add labels to various clusters like EC2. It would be great if that was exposed through the Atlas UI as well.

  7. Show Index Error on UI

    When creating an index on your UI, if the index creation gives an error, the error doesn't show on the UI, for example if you have a field of type string, and have a value longer than 1024 bytes, and try to create a normal index on this field, the UI will tell you the index it's been creating successfully, but when you go to your collection and see your indexes, this will not appear, but when you create it on the MongoDB console, it gives the following error. It would be nice to have this error shown on the…

  8. Allow Pending Users to be Added to a Team

    When trying to implement Atlas infrastructure for Organization/Project users, the Teams functionality is useless unless we can add pending users to a Team. Right now, if a new user doesn't login for two weeks, we can't assign them to a Team until two weeks after the implementation was supposed to be configured.

  9. "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.

    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)

  12. disk iops

    The Disk IOPS graph shows 2 colored lines. (read/write). It would be great to add a third line which is the SUM of the 2 lines. Or... a toggle switch so we can see the sum line instead of the 2 components. Thanks!

  13. 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…

  14. Make session timeout in Atlas UI configurable

    Session timeout value in Atlas UI defaults at 12h. Allow it to be configurable per Project or Organization, with the minimum value being 15 minutes. All Atlas users within an organization that have been idle for the duration of the configured session timeout should be automatically logged out.

  15. Show max IOPS line on IOPS graphs

    When monitoring disk IOPS, it isn't immediately clear when we are limited on IOPS. Having a red limit line on the IOPS chart on the metrics tab would help here.

  16. Make AWS EBS Burst Balance metrics available in Atlas UI

    Make EBS Burst Balance Metrics available within the Atlas UI. Currently it is not easy to 100% understand how much burst credits are being used and whether they have actually been depleted.

    You can infer it from the IOPS metrics going above baseline IOPS and then suddenly dropping down but would be better to see the balance itself to be 100% sure. This will save support requests to do so.

  17. Add tunnelling to allow querying Cloud Backup snapshots

    The Legacy Backups have a feature to allow connecting (tunnelling) to a snapshot to query it. This allows querying a database snapshot which is great for quickly inspecting data in the past for troubleshooting. This would be handy to have for the Cloud Backups. With Cloud Backups instead I now have to download a snapshot, load it temporarily on a cluster and remove it when done.

  18. Create distinct indexes for Analytics nodes

    To effectively use Workload Isolation, it is desirable to have different indexes on the operational cluster nodes than the indexes used to support analytics and reporting query patterns. It would be powerful for Atlas to enable different indexes on Analytics nodes.

  19. Provide an interface that can stream logs directly to Splunk.

    I'm trying to get logs from MongoDB Atlas to Splunk, and there's currently no native interface to do it, so instead of streaming to Splunk directly, I'm having to execute https calls in intervals, unzip them and then ship them to Splunk. Many products have interfaces to stream to Splunk directly, and it would certainly be handy in this situation.
