  2. MongoDB Agent alters the root $PATH variable

    The MongoDB Agent installation via RPM adds the /var/lib/mongodb-mms-automation/bin to root's $PATH by placing the mongodb-mms-automation-agent.sh script under the /etc/profile.d:
    $ pwd
    /etc/profile.d
    $ sudo cat mongodb-mms-automation-agent.sh
    export PATH=/var/lib/mongodb-mms-automation/bin:${PATH}

    This breaks my customers security standards.

    Moving the script does not appear to affect the functionality of the MongoDB Agent and updating the agent via the OM UI does not add back the script.

    We would like the ability to either select the contents of the MongoDB Agent rpm or be asked during the rpm installation whether or not to install the mongodb-mms-automation-agent.sh script.

  3. Allow configuring custom builds at the organisation or global level (Admin panel)

    It must be done at the project level at the moment, generating an operational costs for those environments with a large number of projects.

  4. Implement IAM role authentication for AWS SES in Ops Manager

    At the moment using AWS SES for email delivery in Ops Manager requires AWS Access Key and Secret Key. Please implement the IAM role authentication for this option as it has been done for the S3 endpoints.

  5. 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.

  6. Provide safety mechanism for limiting MongoDB versions amongst different projects

    Restrict the user depending on the type of project: dev, prod, etc to select a specific set of MongoDB Server versions that can be deployed.

    Prior to 4.2 this was accomplished with version manager.

  7. 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. Ops Mgr "Insufficient oplog size" is confusing and prevents backups

    When using Ops Manager UI (I've not checked the API) to declare a MongoDB cluster to be backed up, Ops Manager tries to be a good citizen and check to see if the clusters oplogs are large enough, based on their recent usage to hold at least 3 hours worth of data based on the last 24 hours of usage patterns. if the check fails, the user is prevented from enabling backup and is shown the warning:

    "Insufficient oplog size: The oplog window must be at least 3 hours over the last 24 hours for all members of replica set…

  9. restore

    it would be useful to have directly in OpsManager the ability to restore a single database from shapshot.

  10. Allow to configure separate SNMP v2C community for SNMP v2C Heartbeat Traps and SNMP v2C Alert Traps

    What is the problem that needs to be solved? Allow to configure separate SNMP v2C community for SNMP v2C Heartbeat Traps and SNMP v2C Alert Traps.

    Why is it a problem? (the pain) As of now (2020-03-24) there's no way to configure separate SNMP v2C community for SNMP v2C Heartbeat Traps and SNMP v2C Alert Traps (snmp.community controls both, Heartbeat and Alert Traps sent from Ops Manager's Application Server), some SNMP Monitoring Teams require different SNMP v2C communities for different set of SNMP v2C Traps (to separate Heartbeat Traps and Alert Traps).

  11. Group Host Mapping IPs to be added by default to Programmatic API Keys IP Whitelisting

    As part of the Programmatic API Keys introduced in MongoDB Ops Manager 4.2, it would be good to have the IPs listed in the Host Mappings of a Project Deployment to be added as default whitelisted IPs when setting up a Programmatic API Key for same Project.

  12. Single Project Programmatic API Keys should not require Org User Admin role for IP Whitelists update

    When setting a Programmatic API Key in the MongoDB Ops Manager for a given Project, it seems Project Owners are unable after setting the Key to update the IP Whitelist as they require Organization User Admin role to perform such action (screenshot attached).

    I guess this makes sense if the same Programmatic API Key is shared between multiple Projects inside the same Organization, but not really if this is applied only to one single Project (i.e. Project Owners should be able to amend the IP Whitelisting of their own API Keys).

    I wonder if this could be enhanced in further…

  14. Encrypt Password LDAP Query User

    The LDAP Query user's password appears in plain text in mongod.config file. The ability to mask its password in automation config file using credentialstool would mitigate a security risk.

  15. KMIP Server Host

    Ability to enter multiple values for "KMIP Server Host" under KMIP Server Configuration in the Backup Configuration page of the Ops Manager Config. This would be similar to entering multiple values for 'kmipServerName' for deployments. This would help in terms of HA for KMIP; use a secondary KMIP server if the primary were to be unavailable.

  17. 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…

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
