  1. 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

  2. Ops Manager API - System Alerts

    The ops manager api documentation specifies endpoints for polling group alerts and global alerts but is missing system alerts. We should be able to poll for system alerts via the ops manager api as well.

  4. Memory metrics summed for Project/Organization

    Memory metrics summed for Project/Organization
    Request UI ability to sum total memory used by mongo processes per Project and Organization.
    The UI does provide Process/Replca Set/Cluster Memory Statistics.
    Metrics are available per instance but there is currently no non-programatic way to get the SUM of all used memory for a given Project nor Organization.

  5. Managing mongoDB containers having multiple DNS names through automation agent

    We got mongoDB running on openshift pods across 2 separate openshift clusters and it runs perfectly fine but we are now facing issue with doing mongoDB restore, and that has led to us now wanting to use automation agent to control the mongod process on the containers.

    The major challenge we are facing is that we run into issues when automation agent runs rs.initiate() and as part of the process tries to gather the hostname of the pod by running hostname -f command. The trouble is we have to deal with separate openshift clusters and have got mongod replica set…

  6. Create a User in a Single Cluster

    When multiple clusters are added into an Ops Manager project, the only way to create a user account is to add it to all of the clusters in the project and to then add server IP Address restrictions to prevent the user from logging into servers other than the intended cluster. This would still create the user account on all of the clusters in the Ops Manager project.

    Users would need a way to create a user account on a specific cluster rather than all of the clusters of the project.

  7. Clear default values for New Replica Set and Cluster Component names in UI

    Clear default values for New Replica Set and Cluster Component names in UI

    Replica Set and Cluster Component names cannot be changed after deployment.
    The names are often overlooked while deploying and the defaults accepted configuring the names.
    If the fields were blank but mandatory (maybe with examples below the field) customers would be forced to choose logical names for their deployments.

    | Field | Current Default Value|
    | - | - |
    |Replica Set Id | myReplicaSet |
    | - | - |
    |Cluster Name | myCluster |
    |Shard Name Prefix | myShard |
    |Config Server Replica Set Name…

  8. Ability to define a custom CA PEM file for Webhook configuration on Ops Manager

    Currently, Ops Manager user may require to add the CA for the TLS enabled Webhook Endpoint directly to the Java Trust Store. Adding CA to Java Trust Store also requires to re-apply if Ops Manager Application is upgraded or re-install.

    It would be best to have a feature in Ops Manager so that the user is able to upload the required CA via UI.

  9. Request Logs - Add timeframe to list of options

    While diagnosing historical issues "Request Logs" does not allow for selectable timeframes. As such, for these issues, logs must be manually gathered. Adding an optional timeframe will assist in diagnosing issues much faster.

  11. Data Size on the header of Overview/Real Time/Metrics/Data/Profiler/Performance Advisor pages

    Data Size on the header of Overview/Real Time/Metrics/Data/Profiler/Performance Advisor pages appears to be incorrect.

    Reasearch indicates that the "Data Size" next to "Status" on the Overview/Real Time/Metrics/Data/Profiler/Performance Advisor pages possibly does not include "local" DB and may have an incorrect divisor.
    It also shows the same possibly incorrect value on each Deployment in the "Processes" page.

    We, DBAs, and our application teams, who have access to the Ops Manager, have been relying on this metric info each time we needed to find the size of a user DB.

  12. Configure Ops Manager LDAP Auth via an API call

    Currently, there is no way to enable LDAP Auth for the Ops Manager Users via an API call.

    This essentially means that one would not be able to use LDAP and ci/cd simultaneously with Ops Manager.

    Mongodb enterprise support has confirmed that in the event of disaster recovery or a deployment of a new cluster, manual steps must be done to enable LDAP during a ci/cd deployment.

    It should not be expected to sign in and manually do anything in a web gui in an enterprise solution. It is simply not scalable.

  13. Feature to add the Certificate Authority file to the Ops Manager Java Trust Store via UI

  16. 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.

  17. Add ability to merge metrics when host renamed

    If a host is renamed and a new mapping is made with a unique ID, there is no way to merge the metrics to view the, historically.

    Adding the ability to merge metrics from previous hosts (when the user is sure the hosts are equivalent) would allow history to be viewed and maintained.

  18. Ability to control Ops Manager log rotation from an Admin Page in the UI

    The Ops Manager Application Server Log Directory is typically located in /opt/mongodb/mms/logs/.

    Currently, the log rotation of the Ops Manager log files /opt/mongodb/mms/logs/mms0.log, /opt/mongodb/mms/logs/daemon.log and /opt/mongodb/mms/logs/mms0-access.log are configured by default to rotate the log file every day and compress it with a retention of 30 days. After 30 days the compressed files are deleted.

    Please allow the configuration of these log rotation settings through the Ops Manager Web UI.

    Currently, this can only be done manually. The default installation of Ops Manager includes a file in /opt/mongodb/mms/conf called logback.xml. This is the file that the library uses…

  20. Alerts if MMS Application goes down

    Dear Team,

    We are looking for an option to set alerts if any of the Ops Manager Application goes down in a HA environment. Being with HA configuration, we at least expect this feature to in place - as currently it looks like that OPS Manager is not aware of its own HA configuration.

    Mongo Case: 00723232

    Thanks,
    Tom
