  1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. 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).

  5. Copy as "normal" JSON

    Would be nice to have ability to copy data in mongo shell compatible format. NOT like this:
    {"id":{"$oid":"58a1b4496711f017c2be2c86"},"reportedBy": "$oid":"589b5cddb8843f642c09eecd"},"createdAt":{"$date":"2017-02-13T13:27:37.594Z"}}
    But like this:
    ```
    { "
    id" : ObjectId("58a1b4496711f017c2be2c86"), "createdAt": ISODate("2017-02-13T13:27:37.594Z")}
    ```

  6. Compass

    I'm having problems with Compass. I create 2 connections.
    One to connect to DB to practise - Chapter I

    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

  7. 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.

  8. Sync Database Schema & Collection Schema

    To efficiently work in a development environment and then apply changes to the database changes, something like diff between development (source) and production (target) database, there has to be a feature of synchronising Schema only (without data) with optional opt in for Data as well. It should be bi directional. While synchronising Collections, Schema validation should also be allowed to synchronise apart from indexes. All these options should be allowed to select or de select with proper warnings.

  9. 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⊙︿⊙

  11. Want "expand all" button for documents in view.

    It's very convenient to expand all fields of a document recursively. I want this feature for documents in view.

  12. Duplicate Update Button (or move it)

    When editing large documents, I have to scroll to the bottom to click the UPDATE button.
    Having an Update and Cancel button near the Refresh button would be ideal

    there's plenty of real estate ("Displaying Documents" could be replaced by "Documents" for example.

  13. Enable copy document button if user has project data access read only in Compass

    Users who have only Project Data Access Read Only don't get access to the "Copy Document" button which allows them to paste this information in another tool. If they need to copy a document, then administrator has to grant them "Project Data Access Read Write" which creates an unnecessary security risk or potential for accidental updates. The "Copy Document" button should be allowed for "Project Data Access Read Only".

  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. 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
