  1. 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

  2. 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.

  4. Password policy enforcement

    Currently, MongoDB doesn't provide any way to enforce password policies. If there is some way for Ops Manager to enforce a configurable password complexity and age for user accounts managed through Ops Manager, that would be huge win. This can be as simple as adding UI-level validations to the create/edit user form.

  5. Support __exec setting for the MongoDB deployment in Automation

    The deployment that utilizes __exec setting is unable to import to Automation as well as it is unable to deploy the deployment by Automation with this setting.

  6. In changing the Pager duty service key at cluster level, this key should automatically be used instead of making changes to each alert

    When we migrate from one Pager duty or Slack account to another, as we change the PD/slack service key at cluster level, shouldn't this key get used automatically instead of us going to each alert and recreating the PD/slack entries? It defeats the purpose of setting the PD/slack key at cluster level. And if we have multiple clusters in prod, we will pretty much have to modify alerts for all of them.

    The ticket number for reference is Case #00675142

  7. Allow customization of Alert's Subject/Body

    Currently alerts do not allow for any customization of the Subject or Body. It would be useful to allow customization of both the Subject and Body of emails and other alert methods. This would allow customers to add information, such as links to internal runbooks or documentation, to assist with resolving the alert.

  8. Add Timezone support to Ops Manager Application logs

    All of our hosts are in the same TZ. We would like to be able to set the Ops Manager related logs timestamps to our local TZ.

  9. 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

  10. 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.

  11. 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…

  12. 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).

  13. 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.

  14. Notify about SSL/TLS Certificate Expiration Date & Time to warn customers about potential impact on their deployment availability

    What is the problem that needs to be solved? Customers run into SSL/TLS Certificate Expiration issues (where SSL/TLS certificate has expired) on their Ops Manager and MongoDB Server environments and they do not get any early notifications from Ops Manager about SSL/TLS Certificate Expiration.

    Why is it a problem? (the pain) Customers who use Ops Manager to manage/monitor their MongoDB Server deployments are running into situation where their configured SSL/TLS Certificates are expired, and thus have potential downtime for their applications.

  15. 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…

  16. Webpage session expiry - introduce inactivity timeout

    Currently one can specify a "Session Max Hours" - The number of hours before a website session expires and a user must login again.
    This should be replaced or enhanced with an "Inactivity timeout".
    We have the requirement to set a timeout due to PCI.
    However with the current implementation I have to re-login to the website even when working actively with OPS Manager. An inactivity timeout would allow to be logged out when I am not working on the OPS Manager, but not whilst working with it.

  17. Binaries should be provided via Docker images

    To implement this in a Kubernetes native way for offline deployments, the binaries should be provided as Docker images and distributed through the Docker repositories that are already present in the k8s environment.

    Option 1 (intermediate): Allow Mount of Docker images in the MongoDBOpsManager resource for the path defined in automation.versions.directory. This would allow us to pre-package the binaries needed and bring up the OpsManager in a kubernetes native way. Everything else (e.g. agent downloading the tgz) would stay the same and still be the "OpsManger-way".

    Option 2 (long term): The MongoDB TGZ package is provided as Docker image by…

  19. Provide a feature to monitor the Alert payload being sent out from Ops Manager to the configured Webhook endpoint and etc.

    What is the problem that needs to be solved?
    Provide a feature to monitor the Alerts payload being sent out from Ops Manager to the configured Webhook endpoint and other AlertsServices endpoint.

    Why is it a problem? (the pain)
    Currently, Ops Manager does not log the successful/failed payload of the Alerts being sent out to the configured Webhook endpoint. It is difficult to diagnose the problem with the configured Alert Services.

  20. Add collection level statistics to the measurements API

    Get Database Measurements currently provides information from dbStats.

    Adding collection level statistics would be useful for gathering information via the API on a regular basis to measure growth of each collection and other metrics. Data Explorer functionality is not available via the API.
