  1. Login Page for Ops Manager

    The login page for Ops Manager 4.4+ shows "Email Address" and "Password". While using other login methods such as LDAP, an email address may not be used.

    It would be more accurate to say username here.

  2. Add filters to Global alert screen in Ops Manager

    Add a filter for Global alert Configuration Page. It would be nice to have the ability to search for the specific alert to see if you have it configured and for which environments.

    A filter similar to what is seen on the "Open Alert" view would be sufficient.

    Since we are managing upwards of 50 deployments via Global Alerts this would be a useful feature.

  3. Change MongoDB Log Settings via API

    You can set MongoDB log rotation for mongod process on project level in the Ops Manager through: Deployment -> More -> MongoDB Log Settings. However there is no option to set it via API.
    It looks like there is option to set this parameters on process level (in the Automation Config), but Ops Manager is not accepting new value, like it does when setting values for Monitoring Log rotation and Backup Log rotation.
    It would be great to have option to automate this when creating a new project via API and setting all other attributes with script.

  4. Ops Manager: more precise firewall configuration documentation

    Currently, it is not clear from the documentation what are the source hosts for each port to open. The diagram fills in a bit this imprecision, but it is not formal enough. Also, some ports need to be open only if certain features are needed (eg. download link for snapshots).

    This makes firewall configuration imprecise and experimental (or not as secure as it could be).

    Suggestion: each table of the the Ops Manager firewall configuration webpage should document those columns:
    - source component: client component(s)
    - target component: server component(s)
    - protocol: tcp/udp
    - port
    - feature: to specify if…

  5. Allow to generate/download MongoDB Server Audit process logs

    Problem Statement,
    What is the problem? As of now (2021-03-17) Ops Manager does not support downloading MongoDB Server Audit process logs via UI/API. Atlas does have support for it (via GET /groups/{GROUP-ID}/clusters/{HOSTNAME}/logs/{LOG-NAME} API call).

    Why is this a problem? Users needs to be able to download MongoDB Server Audit process logs via Ops Manager, same way as they do for MongoDB Server process logs/FTDC and MongoDB Agent logs (this significantly simplify troubleshooting, when required). Some users require to download MongoDB Server Audit process logs programmatically to store them in Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) system.

    Proposal,
    * Add MongoDB…

  6. Do not download EOL releases

    Currently our Ops Mgrs keep re-downloading EOL releases of mongodb, e.g. mongodb-linux-x8664-2.6.12, mongodb-linux-x8664-3.0.15, etc. Ops Manager should automatically exclude EOL releases - they are taking up unnecessary disk space.

  7. Add MongoDB user discovery via the API

    For users running DBaaS MongoDB products powered by Ops Manager automation, it would be useful if the API provided a way to replicate the cluster import behavior where MongoDB users are automatically discovered. This would help in scenarios where an existing Ops Manager deployment fails, and hundreds of deployments need to be moved to a different Ops Manager without knowing what MongoDB credentials the end user of that deployment had created. Having this API would allow the DBaaS provider's own scripting/automation to orchestrate moving these deployments to a new Ops Manager stack with reduced downtime.

  9. 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…

  10. Reset duplicates button for Ops Manager Admin System overview page

    Sometimes customer want to clean up the System Overview page and/or the application db from because:
    - They dismissed one or more Ops Manager server running Application servers or backup daemon components
    - Their hostnames / domains have changed over the time
    - Their hostnames have changed from lowercase to capital letters or vice versa because upgrading Ops Manager brought a JVM providing different values for getHostname() (this happens often in Windows environment).

    It would be nice to have a button or at least an API call similar to the project reset duplicates that forces Ops Manager to refresh the…

  11. Add the ability for the backup daemon to download and validate snapshots

    In order to test snapshots automatically, create a new job type that allows the Backup Daemon to download the snapshot from the snapshot store, then run validate on each collection.

    If any collection fails validation, send an alert to the Backup Admin with the list of corrupted data.

  12. Update automation config through API without pushing entire config file

    For updating any Automation managed parameter, the only method through API is involving pushing the entire Automation config (which is a json file of hundreds lines) with modifications/addition all together.

    Even though I just want to update one single value.

    Is it a bit dangerous that there may be human mistake when modifying such a large json file. Wrong configuration may be push to the server.

    Graceful if there is a feature which allow user to partial update the configuration through API.

  13. Allow Ops manager to downgrade FCV

    Ops Manager UI (4.0 -4.4) does not allow downgrading of Feature Compatibility Version (FCV), once the FVC has been upgraded to a higher version. Ops Manager automatically
    removes the lower version from the supported FCVs once upgrade completes. But the cluster deployment allows downgrading one level using shell commands. This limitation makes it difficult when planning an upgrade as regression process are more difficult.
    We are in the process of upgrading the environment from 4.0 to 4.4 (which requires an intermediate upgrade to 4.2.). So the downgrade process is so difficult with Ops Manager UI.

  14. Create Ops Manager API endpoint to download mms0.log files

    We should expand the Ops Manager API to provide mms0.log downloads the same way we allow mongod deployment log downloads. This will help users with diagnostics when they deploy many Ops Manager instances via the kubernetes operator but do not yet have centralized logging.

  15. Ops Manager Prometheus metrics

    MongoDB Ops Manager would need to expose endpoints for Prometheus for MongoDB Clusters. There are a number of metrics that popular MongoDB Exporters do not provide, for example:
    1. Enterprise Backup status
    2. Replication Alarms
    3. Agent statuses
    4. A number of Cluster statuses
    etc

    There is no way to get this data into Prometheus at the moment

  16. Ability to deploy blockstore in "backing database" type organisations/projects

    New versions of Ops Manager have the ability to monitor the ApplicationDB in a organisation/project with the "backing database" server type (https://docs.opsmanager.mongodb.com/master/reference/config/ui-settings/#mongodb-usage).

    It is common to co-host the blockstore/oplogstore database on the same servers as the ApplicationDB and I would like to deploy these using OpsManager automation but there is a problem because:
    * you cannot deploy new clusters in projects with the "backing database" server type
    * an agent is tied to a single Ops Manager project

    I have two options at the moment:
    1. Install a secondary agent on the servers to allow me to deploy…

  17. Add to the Continues Backup UI more information about the snapshots

    Currently, the Ops Manager UI under Continues Backup only shows the following information about the snapshots:
    - Replica set name
    - Status
    - Last Snapshot
    - Last Oplog Slice

    It would be very helpful to also see:
    - Start date/time
    - Finish date/time
    - Backup duration
    - Snapshot size

  18. Enablement of Ops Manager Auditing similar to MongoDB's

    Hi all

    We would like to enable auditing for activities in Ops Manger itself, getting the information directly using the default audit logging options (filesystem / syslog).

    Currently we are getting the detailed information in OpsManager, we get some information in the audit.log log when config changes are made via Ops Manager, but not in detail what exactly had been modified in the log files.

    To establish a holistic, company wide auditing spanning over all levels (OS / DB / Application) taking use of standard auditing tools this would be highly beneficial.

    Regards, Roger

  19. Ops Manager - Allow SNMP traps on non standard ports

    Allow changing SNMP port from default (162) for customers who run SNMP on non-standard ports.

    Currently the port number of the SNMP trap receiver is hardcoded to 162.

  20. 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.
