  2. I would like to name an "Alias" for my MongoDB connections

    I have many MongoDB Connections in my Compass in different ports. But it would be nice if I could identify then.

  3. View sub collections as dropdowns or directories and adding a search feature for collections

    I think MongoDB Compass is an incredibly powerful software using which one can do easy queries and manipulations to data. I also like the UI - its clutter free and easy to use.

    I want to request an additional feature in Compass which isn’t currently there:

    Viewing sub collections as dropdowns or directories(Tree structure)

    Generally, sub collections are namespaced using a period(.) and they make sense since the data becomes easy to organise and work with.

    Say we have nx.ny.na.nb…(n - nodes, x y a and b are integers) type collections

    1. If only a single final collection exists under a…

  8. Could you please make the two sides of the main interface slide?

    Thank you for your guys made such great application and let us use it for free.

    I have a little idea for improve the usability of mongodb compress.

    It hard to figure out a collection when we have a bit longer name of collections, please kindly find the following image, when we need to open a new collection, we have to close the all opening tabs and back to the first main interface, then we can find the full name in the right side, the left side is useless at this situation.

    so, Could you please make the two sides…

  9. How can't you improve it. It's shocking

    Improve it. It's shocking! How about a shell and an export window that works and maybe a gui that can stay unfrozen for more than an hour or two.

  10. Support discovering deployment topology

    It appears that Compass has no provision to discover the topology of deployment, and instead it requires the user to specify replica set name in order to connect to a replica set.

    This was mentioned on SO here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/61135528/mongodb-compass-forces-me-to-enter-replica-set-name-when-trying-to-connect-to-my/61135731#61135731

    For example when I connected to mongodb://localhost:27020 where the node at 27020 is a secondary, I received this message:

    An error occurred while loading navigation: 'not master and slaveOk=false': It is recommended to change your read preference in the connection dialog to Primary Preferred or Secondary Preferred or provide a replica set name for a full topology connection.

    As a user…

  11. Compass got stack without errors info (over 10 min)

    Better error reporting for the user. Importing a json (a valid file) puts the compass in an infinity loop without any error info for the user what is wrong. Values are not stored. App doing importing over 10 min simple file structure, I stoped on end the process.
    I found on end that json should to be in collection format (just with {} brackets). I added standard content with [] (example of the file is below). Improve validation.

    I used 1.21.1 (stable) version of mongodb compass for mac

    [{
    "title": "Specification by Example",
    "isbn": "1617290084",
    "pageCount": 0,

  12. Add a "expand all" button in front a of a document

    The idea is to be able to see a document completely with a single click. When a document has a lot of arrays and object it's very long to drill down to find correct data.

  13. Display/use escaped characters like "\n" for line break in document editor

    I have text fields that may contain "invisible" special characters like a line-break, which is commonly represented as "\n". Another example might be "\t" for tab, but there may also be other invisible unicode characters.

    I would like to be able to edit/save documents in MongoDB Compass that contain such characters.

    The current behaviour is that these characters are completely lost when the document is in edit mode and saved (updated). Manually inserting "\n" in a text field does not insert a line break, but literally a backslash + "n".

    Example document:

    {
    "_id": "***",
    "text": "Hello,\n\nThis is my message."…

  14. Compass

    I'm having problems with Compass. I create 2 connections.
    One to connect to DB to practise - Chapter I
    Another connection to connect to my Sandbox cluster

    Both of them have different hostnames

    When I Exit y Open Compass again, the favourites are no more I need to create the connections again. Before updating, I haven't this problem
    How can I solve?

  15. Generate jsonSchema Validation Based on Schema Analysis

    Since Compass already provides a schema analysis, it would be useful if that analysis could be used generate jsonSchema. The result could be a starting point for the Validation tab or used in other tools such as https://hamidihamza.com/Angular6-json-schema-form/.

  16. security

    Allow an organization to force users to use their access manager accounts as opposed to database accounts to access Compass or from the Shell. Otherwise, users have to have two accounts or we end up with a shared database user account and create a potential security hole.

  17. It's really hard to type in a document json or an attribute,I hope Compass can be more intellegent

    Can Compass get more intellegent for us users ? The Feedback button hide some functional area so that I can't click update to finish editing ducument. I hope Compass can auto save what I've already typed,and never let it happen again that I forget to click that hidden UPDATE button and lose all I've typed,which makes me crazy and angry⊙︿⊙

  19. Avoid listing deleted Atlas databases in Compass

    Deleted databases appear in the view even though it's not reflected in the database itself.
