  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. 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??

  5. 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.

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    In case of auto purging sometimes user might want to ensure data has been archived before purging. If conditional TTL was allowed user could set value of a field to indicate document has been archived and then db can purge accordingly.

  10. 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…

  12. Allow collection collation to be editable

    Collation of a collection can be set at creation time only. It would be useful to edit these fields to avoid creating an entire new collection and copying the collection over.

  13. Validation for referential integrity

    Currently, with the JSON Schema validation, we are able to limit the values for a field using enumerations. However, we need to have a way to limit the values to those entered in another collection.

  14. Ability to view and track collection wise transactions (read,write,success,failures)

    We have multiple microservices using the same collection and we'd like to track how many calls come from each, and also understand which transactions are successful or not.
    Ultimately this will allow us to understand the MDB usage by each of the microservices.
    [setting verbose logging level to 1 and then using these logs to create a dashboard in Splunk doesn't give us enough granularity]

  15. Find all geoJSON points within a large collection of polygons. Reference collection in geoWithin.

    I would like to be able to find all geoJSON points located within a collection of polygons. My personal goal is to find points located within earth's water bodies. The water bodies are located in their own collection while the geoJSON points are located in a separate collection within the same DB. Mongo's geoWithin function only lets me hard code the polygons, but I would like to reference a collection of polygons.

    See https://stackoverflow.com/questions/63162823/mongo-geowithin-error-polygon-coordinates-must-be-an-array

  16. More verbose information about compact failures in logs

    Recently we had a compact operation fail, and the mongod logs stated this was due to "eviction pressure" on the server. We have learned that this is a failsafe mechanism built into the compact command, but we would like to have a more verbose explanation of this failure mode in the logs to better understand why it failed and steps to remediate the issue.

  17. MongoDB emulator

    From a user - A MongoDB in-memory emulator would help development against MongoDB in a completely isolated way. They deploy self contained applications for developers that don't have any external connections other than MongoDB. The customer found a community project, fongo, that does this, but it is not supported and trails development by a few versions. https://github.com/fakemongo/fongo. I would be happy to connect the users with relevant project managers

  18. Periodic large bulk insert/update all or nothing with instant switchover

    Provide the ability for orgs to update things like large reference data sets periodically. E.g. an ecommerce site updates its product inventory every night at midnight, where even though the inserts or updates may take say 10 minutes to run and complete, the applications do not see the changes until the bulk update finishes. The problem otherwise is currently, the ecommerce app, in this example, may be reading product data partly from yesterday's data and partly from today's changed data, during the 10 minute run. For consistency the application would ideally want to see data from either before the bulk…

  19. Support for wildcards in permission parameters

    Support for wildcards or maybe even regular expressions in the database/collection name of a permission for a custom role.

    We have a multi tennant setup, by storing every customer's data in its own database on the cluster. The applications we build span those databases, but every application has it's own permissions on a collection name bases.

    instead of granting "find" permission to the "products" collection of all databases like "mongodbcom" and "somecompanycom", it would be nice if we coulf configure it like "find" permission to the "products" collection on the database matching /^[a-z]+_[a-z]+$/
