  1. Disable the dropdown to add Agent functions on hosts that don't have the MongoDB Agent installed and were only imported for Backup/Monitori

    Disable the dropdown to add Agent functions on hosts that don't have the MongoDB Agent installed and were only imported for Backup/Monitoring.
    The elipsis (...) selections to add Monitoring & Backup Agent functions are available on hosts without the MongoDB Agent. If selected the function appears on the host as grey and standby. This is misleading. The options should not be available on hosts without the MongoDB Agent.

  3. Ability to customize subject line for System & Global Alerts

    Currently there's no way to customize the subject line of either a system or global alert. The subject line only has the project name & time. It doesn't even say why the alert was generated until the email alert is opened. Having the ability to modify the subject line, even if it's to certain predefined fields such as alert condition for example would be helpful in addressing alerts in an efficient and effective manner.

  4. Add hostname/port attributes into all Cluster/Replica Set alert types

    What is the problem that needs to be solved? Add hostname/port attributes into all Cluster/Replica Set alert types generated via SNMP Alert Traps, Ops Manager's Public API calls (Project/Global Alerts) and Alert Webhooks (Project/Global Alerts).

    Why is it a problem? (the pain) Hostname/port attributes are currently missed in Cluster/Replica Set alert types and we only provide a name of the Cluster/Replica Set for which the alert was generated. Operator who watch Monitoring System (the one that receive Ops Manager Alerts) needs to see hostname/port information of a Shard/Replica Set for which such alert was generated, in order to quickly understand…

  5. Periodically notify users of unused versions located in versions directory

    As a safety measure for admins in Ops Manager to avoid facing issues due to unnecessary disk occupation under the Ops Manager installation directory:

    Send periodic notifications (configurable) i.e: once a month; to notify what binaries are not being used by none of the components in their environment so they can evaluate to delete them in order to free up space on their Ops Manager servers.

  8. Snapshots taken by Ops Manager Backups should include config file

    When restoring a snapshot through Ops Manager, automation will create the config file for you. But if you're restoring a snapshot manually, there's no config file! Surely we can include a sample mongod.conf withe sufficient information filled out to help a user get up and running again.

  10. move/copy pagination buttons on top of log screen

    when you browse agent logs( automation/monitoring/backup), the size of records is different because some records can take more than 1 line.
    as a result pagination buttons < and > at the bottom of the screen have different location on every page -so it's hard and frustrating to find new location of buttons - particularly when you need go through 10-50 pages...

    but the top of the page is always is on the same place.
    it would be nice to implement one of 3 options :
    1. add keyboard shortcut to go forth and back between pages
    2. duplicate pagination buttons…

  11. Filesystem Store: Use hardlinks for unchanged files

    When utilizing the Filesystem Store, often files do not change between snapshots. In order to significantly save on space, the Backup Daemon could create hardlinks for the files in subsequent snapshots instead of extra copies of the file.

  12. Possibility to send an alert over all/selected alert channels, if all/selected alerts can't be delivered

    What is the problem that needs to be solved? Send an alert over all/selected alert channels, if all/selected alerts can't be delivered by Ops Manager's Application Server.

    Why is it a problem? (the pain) We can miss an alert (or multiple alerts) from Ops Manager's Application Server if configured alert channel become unavailable since all Ops Manager Alerts are working in fire-and-forget style without any checks/mechanisms to see if the alert was delivered (some alert types can't have that guarantee at all (e.g. SNMP Alert Traps)).

  13. Remote Address and Remote Port information shold be provided as part of the Public API global events for all DATA_EXPLORER_CRUD

    When requesting Audit events using the Public API Global events,
    not all events provide the Remote Address and Remote Port.

    some commands like "find" does present the Remote Port/IP, but others such as updateDocument, insertDocument and deleteDocument do not.

    the info is there so why some events present it and some don't?

    is it possible to formulate a unify base fields for all events that will include the Remote Address, Remote Port?

    Thanks

  14. Admin -> organizations pagination of list

    On Ops Manager up to 4.4.1 the Admin -> Organizations page shows only 100 organizations and there is no support for paginating the results.

    Please improve the page by allowing the user to see more than 100 organizations.

  16. Connect Tab in UI should show a replica set (instead of a host) connection string if deployment is a replica set

    I have a 3-node replica set deployment. When I retrieve the connection string to the cluster via OM UI, it shows a single node connection string

    mongo --host ip-10-0-200-4.eu-west-2.compute.internal --port 27017

    I expect it should show a connection string which includes all hostnames, or something equivalent, if deployment is a replica set.

  17. More fine granular OpsManger roles for API CRUD operations

    More fine granular OpsManger roles for API CRUD operations

    In order to generate API Keys users need some pretty powerful role https://docs.opsmanager.mongodb.com/current/reference/api/org-api-keys/. Same for project API Keys https://docs.opsmanager.mongodb.com/current/reference/api/project-api-keys/.

    Our understanding is that user who can create api keys could also self promote themselves to super admins which is something we don't want and would be a security concern to us. (And admins normally have access to far more things than just user mgmt)

    Additionally it would be beneficial to pass in an desired api key - e.g. for initial provisioning and give admins the chance to reset/rotate an…

  18. Incorporate Support CASE management into the OPS Manager, i.e. open a case, upload traces to the case etc

    Incorporate Support CASE management into the OPS Manager, i.e. open a case, upload required traces to the case and maybe even automatically create a support case for some critical problems.... Minimally I'd like to be able to upload required traces directly from sevrer(s) using wget/curl functionality and attach the upload files to the existing support case(s).

  20. Allow configuring Ops Manager to ignore proxy for internal requests

    A very common Enterprise HTTP Proxy configuration is to deny requests from local networks (10.0.0.0/8, 172.16.0.0/12, 192.168.0.0/16).

    In hybrid mode, the Backup Mode attempts to download the binaries from itself locally through the proxy. This brings to errors as the proxy is blocking the local traffic.
