  1. Consider supporting the installation of mongosh via Ops Manager/automation agent

    Today, it is possible to install MongoDB software (mongoimport/export, mongodump/restore, mongo, bi connector) from Ops Manager via the automation agent.

    Ideally, it will be possible to have the same experience for the new MongoDB Shell (mongosh), so that customers don't need to put in place a separate set of processes nd scripts to install it.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Terraform module for Ops Manager

    Since Ops Manager APIs seem to be very similar (if not, the same) as Atlas API, and since Atlas Terraform modules seem to run based on Atlas API, it would be very nice to have Terraform modules for Ops Manager.

  5. 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.

  6. S3 Snapshot Store Speed Test

    It is often quite difficult to diagnose latency/bandwidth/generally slow S3 storage. It would be useful if Ops Manager could run a short test to show:


    1. How fast a single large object can be PUT and GET

    2. Measure parallel PUTs and GETs against test objects

    3. How much latency there is between Ops Manager and S3

  7. 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…

  8. Disable Query Targeting: Scanned Objects / Returned alerts on specific, recurring aggregations.

    We run routine, recurring aggregation pipelines (essentially, summing up the values of different categories of transactions) on a 5-minute interval. These aggregation pipelines scan for all objects that match a certain type, then sum the cumulative value of certain values of those objects based on category. This means that we regularly have queries that scan >500,000 objects and consolidate them down to ~12 or so objects that are returned.

    In this specific case, I'm alright with the scan/return ratio being very high, and I don't want to be spammed with alerts every five minutes. However, I don't want to disable…

  10. Benchmark backups in Ops Manager

    It would be helpful if, on the Snapshot overview page or on the Admin -> Backup page, there was the ability to benchmark the backup to help identify bottlenecks.

    Allow the user to select a deployment to test and then do a random sampling of data (ie: 100MB) to a temporary Snapshot location and then graph out the metrics for things like Memory/CPU/Disk IO on the source host, Database performance, Backup Agent performance, Network throughput, Blockstore/File System Store/S3 write performance, etc.

    Then create a report based on this benchmark that can be sent to technical support for recommendations.

    This will…

  12. Allow Webhook notifications for System Alerts

    Webhooks are available for Project and Global Alerts. However they are not available for System Alerts.

    It would be ideal to be able to use Webhooks for all alerts.

  13. 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.

  14. Improvements for Datadog integration

    Some parameters for Datadog are not configurable in Ops Manager. For example, "tagging". Adding this functionality would make using Datadog easier.

  15. Drag and drop

    This is strictly cosmetic, but in Ops Mgr Deployment->Processes->deployment, it would be nice to be able to drag-and-drop the order of the servers. I believe it shows them in the order they were added to the replica set, the same as rs.status() or rs.config() would show, but for our deployments, we typically have 2 "main" systems, and then a third "DR" system. It would be great if I could always have our main systems as the first 2 systems, and then our "DR" system last, regardless of how they were added to the replica set. The order they were added…

  16. The Project Global Admin Agent logLevel settings are redundant and confusing

    As explained here:
    https://docs.opsmanager.mongodb.com/current/tutorial/manage-project-settings/index.html#admin-project-settings

    The Ops Manager global admins can override the logLevel setting on a project for Automation and Monitoring Agent modules using the webUI.

    This will cause the Agent to override the local config logLevel setting to what's set in the webUI.

    Please note that this global admin project setting is redundant as the logLevel of the Agent modules can be also set by using the "Edit custom configuration" window in the project agent settings page as explained here:
    https://docs.opsmanager.mongodb.com/current/reference/mongodb-agent-settings/#configuration-file-settings-locations

  17. As a DBA using Ops Manager, when I make a cluster or project change (eg. enabling LDAP), I'd like to see a "dry run" of potential impact

    As a DBA using Ops Manager, when I make a cluster or project change (eg. enabling LDAP), I'd like to see a "dry run" of potential impact like a brief outage so that I will know that this change will have an impact on my end users or not. As of right now, when I make a change, it just happens to all projects/clusters immediately and may create a non-scheduled outage.

  18. I need another level of granularity with RBAC grouping so that only the users of database can see that data.

    As a Ops Manager Admin, I need another level of granularity with RBAC grouping so I can have organization, project and subproject permissions. I currently have hundreds of users in a project level and the permissions are too wide.

  19. 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…

  20. Using Ops Manager, I want to get an alert when a collection is a certain size or near no storage so that I can do an investigation

    As a DBA using Ops Manager, I want to get an alert when a collection is a certain size or near no storage so that I can do an investigation to see if there is abnormal data growth. As of right now, I can only monitor cluster data size.
