  1. Extended JSON

    Add support for Extended JSON (EJSON. For example, {$date: "2021-01-01T00:00:00.000Z"} ) such that we do not have to resort to using the ISODate helper function in the MongoDB Shell and in Compass.

  2. Arrow function support

    Is there any plan to implement arrow functions support?
    The current way to use functions (BSON type 13) is using traditional javascript functions:

    function() {
    ...
    emit(key, value);
    }

    It would be great to support also arrow functions:

    () => {
    ...
    emit(key, value);
    }

  4. Aggregate $accumulator 'Combine' stage for sharded collections

    After the ‘accumulate’ stage has run against each document on a shard it would be extremely useful to run a script on the shard against the state to reduce the state down to something smaller before passing the final state over the network back to mongos for the ‘merge’. (Over in the Elastic camp they call this the ‘combine_script’).

    Scenario:
    I have a customer orders database sharded by the Customer ID (meaning all data relating to any specific customer is kept on the same shard - so customers don’t need to be ‘merged’ between shards). I can write an accumulator…

  5. 4.4 to the EU on regular instance for development!

    I work on mongodb in the EU.. i want to use the atlas search but i also need some features of v4.4

    In development and for general everyday projects where our clients don't have large user bases we generally go for M2 instances.. affordable while offering full text search.

    The release of 4.4 is almost half a year old.. when will we see 4.4 released to the EU of regular M2 instances??

  6. Option to prohibit a non-voting member from becoming a sync source of a voting member

    Hi,

    Our proposition in a few words: add a replica set option to allow chained replication but with the following exception: a non-voting member cannot become a sync source of a voting member under any circumstance.

    This proposition would allow chained replication for clusters having both w=majority writes and analytics nodes.

    Right now, those clusters cannot safely enable chained replication, because under some circumstances, the non-voting analytics member may become the first secondary in a serial chain of replication. In that case, this node[*] slows down the replication process for all downstream secondaries. Higher replication lag translates to extremely slow…

  7. Bundle rest service together DB

    As per current industry practice, REST/Json became standard way to deal with the data between the FE application and Backend DB. So if REST the server/service is bundled with DB it would eliminate the need of a middleware tier in most cases.

    It means we can directly fetch data from a frontend application using REST/Json from mongoDB without requiring a thirdparty service.

  9. Assign MongoDB roles to LDAP users

    I would like to create a softlab and therefore give the possibility to a user to create collections in a database which is dedicated to him.

    Currently, to do that I need to :
    1. create a single-member LDAP group for each user
    2. map this group to a MongoDB role authorizing the user's database.

    Create a group with a single member is conceptually useless. I want to avoid step 1.

    My feature request : add the ability to assign MongoDB roles to LDAP users as well as groups.

    Regards,
    Jerome

  10. Allow custom autoscaling policies

    Currently this is the following autoscaling policy in mongo:

    Please note, if the next highest cluster tier is within your Maximum Cluster Size range, Atlas scales the cluster up to the next tier if one of the following is true for any node in the cluster:

    Average CPU Utilization has exceeded 75% for the past hour, or
    Memory Utilization has exceeded 75% for the past hour.

    The feature request is to allow a DBA to setup custom autoscaling policy

  11. Conditional TTL index

    In case of auto purging sometimes user might want to ensure data has been archived before purging. If conditional TTL was allowed user could set value of a field to indicate document has been archived and then db can purge accordingly.

  12. Include schema validation events in changestream payload

    let's say my document has JSON schema validation like:

    {
      $jsonSchema: {
        properties: {
          phone: {
            bsonType: 'string'
          }
        }
      }
    }
    

    and the validation action is set to "warning", if I do a command like: db.test.insert({"phone":1}), I would like the warning message to be included in my change stream.

  18. String Json Parser

    lately, I imported a big CSV file, containing fields with values of Json object in String format, the simplest way to parse those strings to object it was by doing find().forEach( JSON.pase then update) it taken too much time to update the collection the only think that i have could done to reduce the latency is putting write priority to 0 which isn't very advisable with high throughput of updates, I don't really know for sure I'am not the expert here but working with big data demand a lot of cleaning, and not being able to do the cleaning on…

  19. Extend db.collection.distinct() to work with multiple fields in a compound key

    Currently the distinct() command finds the unique set of values for a SINGLE specified field across a collection or view. For example:
    db.staff.distinct("last_name" )

    If there is an index on the lastname field, the DISTINCTSCAN plan can use that index and the operation is very fast.

    To find the unique values for a set of more than one fields, the $group aggregation stage has to be used like this:
    db.staff.aggregate([
    {$group: {id: {FName: "$firstname", LName: "$last_name"}} ]);

    This operation does not really need the $group functionality, as it is not calculating a sum/min/max/average/etc value using the…
