  1. "last updated" date and time for Saved Pipelines

    When experimenting with several tryies to find the ideal pipeline with the awesome aggregation builder - it would be great if a "last updated" date and time will appear to the side, next to the pipeline's name, in the "Saved Pipelines" window. Thank you for the consideration.

  2. aggregation pipeline verification before deleting

    When opening a saved pipeline - the "open" button is adjacent to the bin (cancel) button and clicking on the bin deletes the pipeline without a chance to regret.

  3. Store aggregation pipeline export language

    Each time you start a new aggregation, the export language is always "Python 3"., so if you're using different language, you have to set the wanted language each and every time you change the active collection or open a new tab...

    The default selected language could be:
    - the last used language (easier but still efficient)
    - the last used language for this connection
    - the last used language for this collection
    - a language configured as "preferred language" when adding a connection as favorite
    - a language configured as "preferred language" at the app level...

  4. I would like $match expression to not evaluate 15*24*60*60*1000 expression with the date, instead use the literal expression

    When translating the following aggregation code, Compass evaluates the expression with the date. I would like to have a feature where it translates the literal expression to the available language.

    Example of aggregation code:
    "date": {$gte: new Date((new Date().getTime() - (15 * 24 * 60 * 60 * 1000)))}

  5. Possibility to set variables used in pipeline stages

    Hi !
    It would be really handfull to have the possibility to use variables in the pipeline stages:

    var userId = ObjectId("5f61dfadc1e8960001700da8'")
    {
    $match : {user.id : userId}
    }

    for complex queries, it would avoid having to modify the id at each stages.
    Thanks !

  6. App Freezes on Some Aggregation Queries

    When I accidentally write a $lookup pipeline query with non existing field name the application crashes. I think this bug is very annoying.

  8. Edit facet stages

    Right now, if we add a facet stage into the aggregation pipeline, we have to write the rest of the aggregation query manually. Users should be able to edit the sub-pipelines within a facet stage.

  9. Lock order or sort documents in Aggregation Pipeline Builder's preview area

    When we create a pipeline, it'd help if we could check the same documents data in the different stages ( now their preview is from randomly selected documents AFAIK ), so it's inconvenient to inspect one specific documents preview phases through all the stages.
    Possible solutions:
    1) lock the first stage's documents' order and apply it to the following stages (if possible, eg. if the stage is $group, then we can not apply the rule to the next stage)
    2) set a sorting ( if possible ) of documents. But only for the preview.

  10. Ability to copy paste an entire pipeline as text and split it into stages of the builder UI

    The pipeline builder is powerful for constructing an aggregation pipeline. However, it would be good to copy an entire pre-written pipeline into the aggregation builder as text and have it syntactically divide the text into the aggregation builder stages UI.

    This will help make pipelines written previously and not saved on Compass easily modifiable over copying each stage manually into the builder UI, which is a tedious process for long pipelines.

  11. Prompt to save pipeline in case Compass is closed accidentally

    It's a human tendency to forget to continuously save an authored pipeline while constructing it. We might create a large pipeline and forget to save it before closing MongoDB Compass.

    Similar, to other softwares please add a prompt to Compass in a situation when changes are not saved before closing it.

  12. Aggregation Error Verbosity

    It would be a real boon to have the aggregation pipeline builder report errors with any degree of verbosity. Right now it just says "unknown error ocurred", and I have to move my pipeline down to the shell to get a real error message.

  13. Text based pipeline mode

    I know you can import the pipeline from a language but I want to completely disable GUI pipeline builder and just have a text editor. The UI is too slow and clunky, just give me a text editor to directly edit and run an aggregate.

  15. Aggregation Export Pipeline Error documentation

    When I have "Builders" selected, all I get for an error is "$eq cannot be top-level". Does not help the user at all to know what this means.

  16. Aggregation Pipeline builder export to R

    I would like to be able to export pipelines in R syntax, as I can today in Node, Java and others. R is very picky and unforgiving about it's JSON so having it generated automatically would save a lot of time.

  18. Execute an aggregation pipeline and view full results

    The current Aggregation Pipeline Builder is good for authoring pipelines, but not so much for running them. The final results are limited to 20 docs and not easy to view, and viewing the intermediate stage outputs can slow down performance. There should be a way to execute a pipeline and page through the complete results.

    We just released Compass 1.32-beta.


    This functionality – both running the aggregation against the whole collection as well as exporting the results to JSON and CSV – is now available.


    If you try it out, let me know if you have any feedback.


    We expect this to go GA in a few weeks.

  19. Share aggregation pipelines across clusters/namespaces and with other people

    Aggregations can be saved in Compass but they are only accessible in the Aggregation Builder for the specific cluster and namespace. It would be good to be able to reuse pipelines across different clusters and namespaces (e.g. I build it against my staging database but then I want to also test it in prod).

    It would also be great to have a way to share a library of pipelines with the rest of the team. In the ideal scenario, pipelines would be versioned and multiple people would be able to contribute to a shared library of pipelines.
