  1. 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)).

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. Add Ops Manager's Org ID/Org Name/Project Name into Project/Global Alerts API calls & Alert Webhooks

    What is the problem that needs to be solved? Ops Manager's Org ID/Org Name/Project Name attributes needs to be added to Project (GET /groups/{PROJECT-ID}/alerts) / Global (GET /globalAlerts) Alerts API calls and Alert Webhooks.

    Why is it a problem? (the pain) Ops Manager's Org ID/Org Name/Project Name attributes are currently missed in Project (GET /groups/{PROJECT-ID}/alerts) / Global (GET /globalAlerts) Alerts API calls and Alert Webhooks. Operator who watch Monitoring System (the one that receive Ops Manager Alerts) needs to see Ops Manager's Organization ID/Organization Name/Project Name in order to quickly understand to…

  5. 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.

  6. 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…

  7. 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).

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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…

  12. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. Add support for collections with default locale

    At present if a collection has a default collation configured, sharding such a namespace via Ops Manager results in a failure with the following symptom:

  17. 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…

  18. 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. 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
