  1. Add an option to visualize raw json query plans

    It should be possible to import a raw execution plan generated with .explain(), and have it visualized in Compass!

    Why - so we as developers don't need to read the JSON manually.

    This would be very usefull when debugging slow queries using the aggregation framework.

  5. To be able to show images contained in document fields

    It would be great to see the images when a field contains it.

    In the attached file, would show in place of the binary field "Imagen".

  6. 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.

  7. The option to prevent automatic query in Documents tab.

    Once clicking on the collection in the sidebar, the sample of 20 documents automatically are retrieved and displayed in the Documents tab. In some environments with large document size and network latency, MongoDB Compass UI blocks interaction until the query has timed out.

    The option to prevent automatic query in Documents tab would be ideal to prevent this issue.

  8. Explain why "Document failed validation"

    When saving a document fails, and the error "Document failed validation" is raised, it would be incredibly useful to know in what way the document does not match the validation schema.

    There's a whole meme at my company about this error and the hours we waste chasing down the various causes.

    Yes I'm aware of the "application validation" argument. We do it too. But we have big documents, big collections, and frequent schema migrations; there's going to be issues. Compass does not access MongoDb though our application, so it seems like the right place to be able to know "why".

  9. Screen reader support

    Hello,

    Visually impaired users rely on a screenreader to have information read by a speech synthesizer or displayed on a braille display. Popular screen readers are VoiceOver on Mac OS as well as JAWS and NVDA on Windows or Orca on Linux Desktop.
    Currently, a screen reader isn't able to work properly with MongoDB Compass.

  10. Visual rule builder for schema validation

    In Compass, it is possible to create validation rules to enforce a schema. It would be good to be able to generate these rules with a simple, visual editor, instead of having to know the MQL or JSON Schema syntax for the validation rules.

  12. Touching a collection on the left hand side, wipes out your work in aggregations with no warning

    Touching a collection on the left hand side, wipes out your work in aggregations with no warning

    When using aggregations and you are busy with your pipeline(s)

    If you left click on any of the collections on the left panel, 

    It wipes out your work on the aggregations (no warnings at all)

    [Yet when we paste in an exported version of the pipeline it gives a warning]

    This makes it hard to teach people how to use aggregations, as they have to treat the left hand panel like a land mine (and all they wanted to do was to look…

  13. Allow customers to copy a pretty print formatted json

    Currently when copying a document from MongoDB compass, the copy button will put the stringified json onto your clipboard. However, the text that is copied omits whitespace. As such, if I want to make the json more human parsable, I need to visit a website like jsonformatter, paste the document, then recopy the cleaned json doc.
    Would be nice if we could specify whether to copy w/ or w/o whitespace formatting.

  15. CTRL+F in results

    Implement a CTRF+F function to allow "text search" in results page (like in a Browser)

    example : In a collection, I use "Filter" field to search document and compass returns 15 documents. I hit CTRL+F and I can search a field name or a value and navigate between.

  16. Respect custom roles/Specific Privileges

    Currently Compass does not respect collection privileges properly. If you limit access to a particular collection in a DBuser assigned role or specific privileges it shows you no collections.

    I have confirmed this with customer support as demonstrated in the file attached.

    This is very strange to me, and I don't know why this fairly simple functionality isn't there.

  17. mongosh should be its own tab at the top with output options

    I hate how mongosh is at the bottom. It makes it rather hard to see the results as it involves lots of scrolling, I end up having to write a js file and using mongosh in the terminal.
    It would be good if it was it's own tab at the top and give options to view the output differently.
    The best example I can give is how the robo3t does it. When the data can't be viewed as a tree or table, it just outputs it in text mode.

    Something like this is super handy for developers and makes it…

  18. i just want to refresh the current database to see the collections that may have changed

    ....but I can only refresh all the db's, and that loses the selection and I have to go find it again. There are sometimes hundreds of db's in a cluster and the list of databases is not ordered alphabetically (or otherwise that I can tell) and has no db search so its a constant exercise in scrolling to refresh the collections in a db

  19. Add color context to title sections for favorite colors

    We use color context for ssh terminals when connecting to a production vs qa environments. I've noticed you can color context a Favorite. But if you color only the favorite button, it doesn't give you a full view of if your in production or not.

    Suggestions:
    * Add that color to the background of the title area where the collection name, document count, total size is.
    * On the row view section. maybe just a small color icon on the left empty space of each row.
