  1. On demand snapshots in Ops Manager

    Allow the possibility of performing a snapshot on-demand.

    Usually the snapshot time ends too far away in time after configuration changes of the backup job (i.e: changing the block size). For testing purposes it would make sense to allow performing a snapshot on-demand to get it generated and proceed with further testing/tuning if required.

  2. mongo push

    Why doesn't MongoDB provide a tool (integrated or standalone) to operate document migration across on-prem (sharded) clusters? Suggestion might be to officially support tools like "mongo push", which may cover situations of hardware changes, production servers migration, re-sharding.

  3. Ops Manager: Test Failover

    The ability to Test Failover was added to Atlas https://docs.atlas.mongodb.com/tutorial/test-failover.

    Please add this functionality to Ops Manager in order to facilitate failover testing. This is especially useful in multi-tenant Ops Manager setups.

  4. 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.

  5. MongoDB Agent (Automation Module): don't attempt to auth with `net.tls.clusterFile` / `net.tls.certificateKeyFile` and use Agent X.509 cert

    Problem Statement,
    What is the problem? MongoDB Agent (Automation Module) attempts to auth with net.tls.clusterFile / net.tls.certificateKeyFile X.509 certificate first, pretending it is a Replica Set member.

    Why is this a problem? MongoDB Server process logs are flooded by unnecessary noise from such MongoDB Agent (Automation Module) auth attempts pretending it is Replica Set member. MongoDB Server will always log Replica Set member auth certificate usage outside of internal MongoDB Server client (https://github.com/mongodb/mongo/blob/6212e50e73dd032b448a514fe6893c6490a28a9f/src/mongo/db/commands/authentication_commands.cpp#L294-L300),

    Example,
    {"t":{"$date":"2021-05-10T11:08:03.110+0000"},"s":"W", "c":"ACCESS", "id":20430, "ctx":"conn116","msg":"Client isn't a mongod or mongos, but is connecting with a certificate with cluster membership"}

    Proposal,
    * Don't attempt to auth…

  6. Add backup database monitoring in Ops Manager

  7. Add memory monitoring metrics

    Atlas -> please make buffers, cached, and MEM shared available under system memory metrics on Atlas for end users so we can calculate the criteria for auto scaling .

    Currently only Mongodb support can see these three metrics

  8. MongoDB Agent (Automation Module): don't attempt to auth with `__system` (SCRAM) user when `security.clusterAuthMode` is set to `x509`

    Problem Statement,
    What is the problem? MongoDB Agent (Automation Module) attempts to auth with __system (SCRAM) user when security.clusterAuthMode is set to x509.

    Why is this a problem? MongoDB Server process logs are flooded by unnecessary noise from such MongoDB Agent (Automation Module) failed auth attempts.

    Example,
    {"t":{"$date":"2021-05-10T11:08:02.115+0000"},"s":"I", "c":"ACCESS", "id":20249, "ctx":"conn115","msg":"Authentication failed","attr":{"mechanism":"SCRAM-SHA-1","principalName":"__system","authenticationDatabase":"local","client":"10.10.10.10:46765","result":"AuthenticationFailed: ###"}}

    Proposal,
    * Don't attempt to auth with __system (SCRAM) user when security.clusterAuthMode is set to x509 in MongoDB Server

  9. SAML support in Ops Manager API

    SAML is available as an authentication mechanism and we're currently using it with keycloack (centralized identity provider).

    It works well with Ops Manager but there seems to be no support whatsoever in Ops Manager 4.4 API to programmatically add / update / delete SAML groups on Organizations or Projects.

    The official API documentation doesn't even recognize that SAML is available.

    Mongo support has confirmed that and it's a target feature in their internal backlog.
    This idea will hopefully speed up things.

  10. Add ability to transition WiredTiger encryption-at-rest from local keyfile encryption (LKE) to KMIP

    If you are using local key file encryption and backing up your MongoDB deployment using Ops Manager, backups won't work correctly if you upgrade to MongoDB 4.2. The correct solution is to switch your encryption to KMIP. But if you try doing that, automation will get stuck!

  11. 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. Add the ability to trigger alerts for testing purposes

    It would be useful to have a "Test Alert" button for each configured alert in order to integrate and test alerts with third-party systems. Otherwise, it is difficult if not impossible to determine what the alert will look like until it is triggered.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. Use separate tls.crt and tls.key items in a kubernetes secret for certificates instead of a combined item named server.pem for a MondoDB rep

    There should be a way to use separate tls.crt and tls.key items in a kubernetes secret for certificates instead of a combined item named server.pem.

    We request our certs using cert-manager which generates secrets from the cert CRD and will get auto renewed every so often. These secrets have 2 items, tls.crt and tls.key.

    So far the only way I have seen to enable tls is to combine these 2 items and rename it into a new secret in kubernetes as item called server.pem. This however means that when a cert auto renews that the wrong secret…

    planned  ·  Andrey responded

    Support for Cert Manager as well as support for separate crt and key is on a roadmap.
    We will look into updating our docs to describe cert rotation.

  16. Allow Ops Manager Data Explorer to read from Secondary nodes

    Ops Manager should allow Data Explorer to be configured with a Read Preferences and maxTimeMS options. Not having these options allows this tool to potentially trigger un-optimized queries to only hit primary nodes, which for high load production environments may cause un-expected problems.

  17. Allow S3 Oplog Store to be defined and configured using the Operator.

    Ops Manager can utilize S3 storage for the Oplog Store. It should be possible to define and configure an S3 Oplog Store from the Operator.

  18. 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.

  19. Improvements for Datadog integration

  20. Enable S3 Snapshot Storage via Kubernetes Operator with IAM role

    Configuring an S3 Snapshot Storage with IAM roles is only possible via Ops Manager UI or API.

    It would be great to be able to do this configuration via the MongoDB Kubernetes Operator.
