  1. 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…

  2. 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).

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Plugin for Moogsoft monitoring tools.

    Currently, Ops Manager does not have the plugin for Moogsoft monitoring tools, it would be great to add the feature to the future release of Ops Manager.

  7. Create localhost exception for POST /unauth/users API call

    The purpose of this request is for Ops Manager to implement a "localhost exception" for the API call POST /unauth/users so it can only be executed under two conditions:
    1. No other users exists in the setup.
    1. Ops Manager runs in "invitation only" mode.
    1. Ops Manager has not been configured for LDAP.
    1. The API call can only originate from an IP or alias that belongs to one of the Ops Manager Application server.

  8. ability to re-order alerts

    when you add new alert there is no way in GUI to order/reorder them. It's hard to maintain large set of alerts.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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…

  14. 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).

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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

  19. 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…

  20. 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…
