  1. Allow the use of symlinks within the Ops Manager directory

    Sometimes it would be great if we could move the conf, tmp, or logs directories to other filesystems and use symlinks so that Ops Manager doesn't have to worry about where the needed file physically are. Right now, Ops Manager refuses to start whenever this sort of redirection is done.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  6. Backup Resource Usage via Api

    In Ops Manager, it is not possible to obtain some data from each snapshot via api, it is only available in ops manager interface. It is a good a idea to obtain from each snapshot the information of the backup resource usage. The api could return this information: "Store Type, Store Id Live, Compressed Bytes Dead, Compressed Bytes Compression Ratio, Last Groom, Last Track"

  7. 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…

  10. Ops manager Apps DB logs archival policy in mongod.conf

    I wanted to manage the Ops manager apps db logs in more refined by way by enabling "Size per Log Type in MB" and "Total Number of Files" settings in mongod.conf.
    How ever I don't see any options "Size per Log Type in MB" and "Total Number of Files" but same avaiable in ops manager UI for agent managed replica set. Do you have a plan to add these options in mongod.conf in future releases for apps DB?

  11. Automation - Monitor ulimit parameters for mongo processes

    MongoDB will abort if ulimit parameters are set too low. We should monitor parameters such as "open files" and add an alert for when the value approaches the ulimit configuration.

  13. Trigger replica set alerts for hidden secondaries

    We need to ability to trigger replica set alerts when a secondary that is hidden goes down.

    In this example an environment has 4 members, with one of them "hidden". We would like to be alerted even when the "hidden" secondary goes down.

    Currently alerts are only working for non-hidden members.

  14. Allow multiple authentication sources simultaneously

    Currently Ops Manager authentication supports either the Application Database, LDAP, or SAML, but these methods cannot be combined. Ideally we would like to move to LDAP, but we are stuck with the local authentication method as we depend on a local admin user which is used when first deploying and configuring the Ops Manager ecosystem. We also do not want to depend solely on the availability of the LDAP servers regarding an admin user. The MongoDB cluster deployments do support multiple authentication methods at the same time (we have local admin and monitoring accounts while users are authenticating via LDAP),…

  15. 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.

  16. 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…

  17. 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…

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
