  1. Support migrations to different snapshot stores

    Currently it is not possible to transition between snapshot store types.

    There are two options currently when transitioning to the new one.


    1. Terminate backups (deleting all previous snapshots)

    2. Create a new project and abandon the previous one to allow automated restores at a later time

    Both of these options are difficult to manage for large deployments. The first option requires you to store the snapshots elsewhere and disallows automated restores. The second option requires many operations and clutters the Ops Manager project list.

    Ideally we should be able to transition from any store location/type to any other location/type. One of…

  2. Provide a UI for uploading release archives to the mongodb-releases directory

    When Ops Manager is in "Local Mode", a system administrator must manually populate the mongodb-releases directory.

    Please consider adding a GUI for uploading the releases over HTTP(s) from the Ops Manager admin panel. This will alleviate server access restrictions/issues, as well as provide a quick method of populating the releases from a workstation in an internet restricted environment.

  4. MongoDB University Ops Manager courses

    It would be good if mongodb university offers Ops manager course like other courses. It will help to understand architecture and moving parts in Ops manager.

  5. Memory metrics summed for Project/Organization

    Memory metrics summed for Project/Organization
    Request UI ability to sum total memory used by mongo processes per Project and Organization.
    The UI does provide Process/Replca Set/Cluster Memory Statistics.
    Metrics are available per instance but there is currently no non-programatic way to get the SUM of all used memory for a given Project nor Organization.

  6. Managing mongoDB containers having multiple DNS names through automation agent

    We got mongoDB running on openshift pods across 2 separate openshift clusters and it runs perfectly fine but we are now facing issue with doing mongoDB restore, and that has led to us now wanting to use automation agent to control the mongod process on the containers.

    The major challenge we are facing is that we run into issues when automation agent runs rs.initiate() and as part of the process tries to gather the hostname of the pod by running hostname -f command. The trouble is we have to deal with separate openshift clusters and have got mongod replica set…

  7. Ability to control Ops Manager log rotation from an Admin Page in the UI

    The Ops Manager Application Server Log Directory is typically located in /opt/mongodb/mms/logs/.

    Currently, the log rotation of the Ops Manager log files /opt/mongodb/mms/logs/mms0.log, /opt/mongodb/mms/logs/daemon.log and /opt/mongodb/mms/logs/mms0-access.log are configured by default to rotate the log file every day and compress it with a retention of 30 days. After 30 days the compressed files are deleted.

    Please allow the configuration of these log rotation settings through the Ops Manager Web UI.

    Currently, this can only be done manually. The default installation of Ops Manager includes a file in /opt/mongodb/mms/conf called logback.xml. This is the file that the library uses…

  8. mms.ldap.bindPassword

    We need to deploy ops manager with LDAP settings via yaml file where one of the setting "mms.ldap.bindPassword=" requires clear text password.
    Is there any secure option to this?

  9. Clear default values for New Replica Set and Cluster Component names in UI

    Clear default values for New Replica Set and Cluster Component names in UI

    Replica Set and Cluster Component names cannot be changed after deployment.
    The names are often overlooked while deploying and the defaults accepted configuring the names.
    If the fields were blank but mandatory (maybe with examples below the field) customers would be forced to choose logical names for their deployments.

    | Field | Current Default Value|
    | - | - |
    |Replica Set Id | myReplicaSet |
    | - | - |
    |Cluster Name | myCluster |
    |Shard Name Prefix | myShard |
    |Config Server Replica Set Name…

  10. Ability to define a custom CA PEM file for Webhook configuration on Ops Manager

    Currently, Ops Manager user may require to add the CA for the TLS enabled Webhook Endpoint directly to the Java Trust Store. Adding CA to Java Trust Store also requires to re-apply if Ops Manager Application is upgraded or re-install.

    It would be best to have a feature in Ops Manager so that the user is able to upload the required CA via UI.

  11. Request Logs - Add timeframe to list of options

    While diagnosing historical issues "Request Logs" does not allow for selectable timeframes. As such, for these issues, logs must be manually gathered. Adding an optional timeframe will assist in diagnosing issues much faster.

  13. Request "Send SMS Test Message" tab similar to "Admin > Control Panel > Send Test Message" for email.

    This could be useful for testing SMS messages and twilio integrations.

  14. Data Size on the header of Overview/Real Time/Metrics/Data/Profiler/Performance Advisor pages

    Data Size on the header of Overview/Real Time/Metrics/Data/Profiler/Performance Advisor pages appears to be incorrect.

    Reasearch indicates that the "Data Size" next to "Status" on the Overview/Real Time/Metrics/Data/Profiler/Performance Advisor pages possibly does not include "local" DB and may have an incorrect divisor.
    It also shows the same possibly incorrect value on each Deployment in the "Processes" page.

    We, DBAs, and our application teams, who have access to the Ops Manager, have been relying on this metric info each time we needed to find the size of a user DB.

  15. Ops Manager Base URL should support custom paths/sub-directories

    It may be desired to place Ops Manager behind a proxy or load balancer based on a URL path (aka sub-directory or prefix). For example, an nginx location may want to proxy pass connections to Ops Manager on "location /opsmanager"
    Currently, the Ops Manager Base URL appears to only accept and use the scheme, hostname/domain, and port. Additional path details are ignored by redirects sourcing from javascript functions and html links/resources.

    Current workarounds require a unique/dedicated server name for proxying or load balancing to Ops Manager web service(s).

    This feature request is for supporting custom URL paths when using Ops…

  17. Ability to send SNMPv3 Alert Traps for configured Ops Manager Alerts

    What is the problem that needs to be solved? Ops Manager Alerts should have possibility to send SNMPv3 Alert Traps to configured destinations. SNMPv3 provides better authentication, data encryption and message integrity in comparison to SNMPv2c protocol.

    Why is it a problem? (the pain) It is mandatory to use SNMPv3 in many enterprise deployments as SNMPv2c does plaintext community string authentication without encryption (SNMPv3 does MD5/SHA1 hashing for passwords and provides encryption for SNMP data).

  18. Add 4.4 tool to PATH

    Since MongoDB 4.4 the tools are located in another folder that is not included in the automation agent bash profile:

    [root@n1 mongodb-mms-automation]# cat /etc/profile.d/mongodb-mms-automation-agent.sh
    export PATH=/var/lib/mongodb-mms-automation/bin:${PATH}

    Would be nice to have also the mongo tools in the path

  19. Improve backup job status in Backup jobs summary table

    When checking the backup job details for a 4.2 deployment, this is always reporting to be performing a "WT Checkpoint" even though it is not exactly generating a snapshot at that point in time.

    The request is to enhance the reporting for this summary table in order to get further details on what the Backup Module is doing at that precise point in time. If it is awaiting for the instruction to execute a snapshot, in the process of transferring blocks, etc.
