  1. Feature Request: Add simplified parallel insertion command syntax

    I want to have a (maybe per server) setting dialog where I can enter a custom JS function that returns any of the mongoDB supported datatypes for the primary key (_id or id - usually String, ObjectId or NumberLong) and is then used everytime I insert a new document in mongoDB compasst.

    Context

    I was testing deduplication functionality I implemented in my app and I had to repeat the process several times. As my IDs were UUIDv4 strings, I needed extra steps after duplicating the documents with the duplicate button on the document in the preview list because otherwise the…

  2. allow updating of data via "add data", by importing an updated file

    Right now if you export data, modify it, then try to import it, it will throw an error because the ID already exists. I want to update all those documents, not create new ones.

  3. Export data from a query should limit fields based on Projection

    When exporting data from a query in MongoDB Compass, only check the fields that are in the Projection section. Don't default to all the fields when exporting.

  4. Have the Export Colelction feature list all collection fields by default

    The current feature lists the fields from a sample of documents which may miss some fields. Although it is specified in a tooltip, this is quite counter-intuitive in a NoSQL database which is all about document diversity.

    When a collection has upwards to 100+ possible fields it becomes quite tedious to figure out which ones are missing from the sample data.

    I would like for MongoDB Compass to find the complete list of possible fields for a selected collection and list them all out be default.

  5. Mongo to recognize arrays during import

    Mongo is unable to recognize arrays, even from it's own exported documents that are manually formatted as arrays. The options available are not compatible with complicated datasets with more than one column that contain arrays. This should be standard.

  6. export sorted data

    When clicking export collection button, the sort option specified should be copied to "Export query with filters"

    Examples:

    db.holidays.find (
    {Date: {eq: '2022-04-08'}
    ).sort ({System : 1})

    or even make this part editable, so we can add sort option

  7. restrict export access

    Compass currently allow any user to export data to his local file system, I think it's necessary to add restrictions so that the admin user can specify which user can or can not export data

  9. Ability to drill-down and easily export deeply nested arrays

    Provide the ability to drill-down and export any MongoDB array from Compass to a csv file, no matter how deeply it is stored within a document. So, one should be able to drill-down to the given array (no matter how many levels deep) in Compass, and then click "export to csv" to export only that nested array's contents to a CSV file.

  10. Export Files from GridFS

    A nice reature would be to be able to export stored binary files in GridFS via the Atlas UI. It will allow the users to click an export button on the fs.files collection and would stream out the file using gridfs in the drivers.

  11. Checkbox to deselect all fields when importing csv files

    When importing csv files, I did not find the checkbox to deselect all fields. There were 60 fields, I needed just two of them. I had to click 58 times to deselect the not needed fields.

  12. Add an option to copy a database

    Let's say I need to test something on the production data but I don't want to touch the prod data. It would be cool to have an option to copy the remote DB data to the local DB so I could safely test my queries without affecting prod or UAT DB data

    Simply said it should be like an export database

  13. Deal with Lat/Lon Pairs in CSV/Tabular imports.

    When importing tabular data with separate columns for Lat/Lon geospatial data, MongoDB Import should be able to automatically rebuild these into GeoJSON compliant structures.

  16. 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",

  18. Add support to export multiple collections

    I would like to be able to export multiple collections at the same time. It would be nice if Compass generates json files named with the collection name.

  19. "Relaxed Mode" be added to compass exports,

    Compass should have a feature to export data in Relaxed Mode . It's exporting the unwanted objectId": { "$numberLong": "48726857629970" } for consistency import which is not required . For some data-comparison , I need the relaxed mode feature to be enabled . This would be an additional features enables users to export the collection in relaxed mode as well

  20. Add ability to setup delimiter for csv export

    Please add ability to setup delimiter for csv export. For example if values of fields are text, than they could contain comma ( and semicollon) and csv file is off. There needs to be options such as comma, semicollon, tab ...
