  1. SSH private key - Ask for passphrase each time

    I would like to be able to enter the SSH private key passphrase every time I connect to the DB like in NoSQLBooster or Robo 3T.

  2. Need "Inactive" sessions "Terminated" connected via Compass to MongoDB

    Need "Inactive" sessions "Terminated" which have been connected via Compass to MongoDB and idle for more than x minutes. This feature is not full available. As per MongoDB support maxIdleTimeMS -- "Compass supports that option but please note that this won't close the session, will only collect idle connections in the pool and wouldn't really be noticed on the user end.
    For you to be aware, this request was already discussed internally as a missing option so it would be good if you can provide some additional feedback in our official website for our Product managers to consider."

  3. Recognize $HOME/.ssh/config file in SSH bastion / jump box

    Configured hostnames are not read from the file causing the user to have to re-input the same jumpbox information per connection.

    The work around is to define jumpbox destinations on the user's /etc/hosts file but preference is to have Compass respect the default SSH config file.

  4. Allow connections to Atlas from Compass using SAML/SSO

    When using Atlas with SAML (e.g. Okta, AzureAD) there is no (obvious) way to get access to the Atlas Cluster from Compass. Following the Compass instructions to get the username/connection string from Atlas shows me the shared SAML user - whom I cannot and should never get the password for - and no way to get the token or whatever it is that SAML is doing under the hood.

    Can Compass please have a SAML option added - open a browser to the SSO provider and capture what it needs from there?

  6. database access needs to be more granular

    I need the ability to restrict access to individual databases and /or clusters, for both build in and custom permissions and roles.

    You have boxes for databases and collections; just add one for clusters too.

  7. Compass: Set custom names for connections

    When having many projects and connections saved in Compass, assign a custom name would be easier to identify the connection we want connect to.

  8. Provide an UI option to limit Compass to a single database connection by setting the maxPoolSize to 1 in the driver

    There are some authentication setups in the field that require customers to approve every attempt to use their external credentials (such as LDAP passwords) via manual interaction with an MFA vendor's app (a good example would be Okta Verify).

    When the driver has a connection pool greater than 1 (the current default is 10), it may spawn additional connections to the database without letting the customer know. This may result in authentication failures for the various commands - if the customer misses the MFA prompt on their device.

    The current solution is to set the maxPoolSize=1 option in the connection…

  9. Allow customization capability to Administrators

    1. Provide option to administrators to freeze the Read Preference dropdown to Secondary to restrict users only to secondary nodes of the cluster.
    2. Freeze maxTimeMS value to a desired value (operations team would decide the value) rather than providing this option to users whether or not to use it and let rogue queries run for long duration on production clusters.

    The work for this is currently being scoped. If you are interested in a preview of the functionality once it is available, feel free to reach out.

  10. Add OpenSSH config and auth agent support

    I have to use a vpn which forwards into a proxy to connect to my mongo cluster.

    My PC => VPN => Bastion Host => Mongo Cluster

    This is very easy to do using OpenSSH configs in other tools but compass does not support this option.

  11. real time connectivity metrics

    Hello,

    in order to perform more accurate analysis, it would be helpful if the "RealTime" section is filled with more information.

    For example, the possibility to track from where which connection originates, at time X ( preferably in the past).

    Best regards

  12. Improve Compass experience for working with lots of Atlas Clusters

    Currently it's quite a lot of work to onboard Atlas Clusters especially if you have a lot. We have 80+. It would be a great if there was an easier way to create Cluster connections within Compass, whether that be an export/import process or you just connect it to Atlas and it works it all out via an API.

    To further support this it would also be great to set username/password details and preferences like secondary at root or group level so that clusters under root or group can inherit those credentials rather than filling in for each connection

  13. warn about stale IP address whitelisting

    For people who work on wireless networks, if you come back after the weekend the IP address has often changed. If you are working with whitelisting, you now have the surprising situation that your connection string no longer works.

    The sidebar in Compass gives instructions on getting the connection string or how to format it, but no reminder that connections that recently worked might be unusable now because the IP address whitelisting is now out of date.

    In addition, Compass might list your IPv4 and IPv6 to let you know what these values are instead of requiring to go to…

  14. Explicit confirm the saving of connection credentials

    When user enter connection info, the details are saved for the next time.

    If the user want to forget the info he need to disconnect and then remove the connection string.

    Instead i suggest that only when the user explicitly ask to save the connection string (with checkbox atc.) the connection will be available for the next opening

  15. Support SSH tunnel to Atlas with AWS Private Endpoint

    Compass cannot connect via ssh tunnel with SRV connection string when the MongoDB server is behind Private Endpoint.

    looks like Private Endpoint appear 3 different ports for each replica.

  16. 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.

  17. SSL - Allow access to Trusted Root Certification Authorities in Windows

    Allow Compass to access the Trusted Root Certification Authorities Certificate Store in Windows to be able to connect via SSL with a system-wide root CA file (without explicitly specifying the CA file).

  18. 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?

  19. Require user confirmation before saving over a favorite connection

    Currently if you accidentally click "Paste connection string" on a saved favorite connection, all the manually inputted and saved connection settings will disappear. A favorite connection should not be edited until the user explicitly confirms it should be saved. It's extremely frustrating to have to reconfigure a "saved" connection due to clicking on something that gives no indication it will modify the saved settings at all

  20. 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.
