  1. 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.

  2. Integration with Microsoft Teams

    Add third-party service integration for Microsoft Teams, as we do for Slack.
    Most likely the following can be leveraged to achieve the integration: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/teams-proactive-messaging

  3. Add the ability for the backup daemon to download and validate snapshots

    In order to test snapshots automatically, create a new job type that allows the Backup Daemon to download the snapshot from the snapshot store, then run validate on each collection.

    If any collection fails validation, send an alert to the Backup Admin with the list of corrupted data.

  5. add details to alert Query Targeting: Scanned / Returned to identify what triggered it

    If you want to catch full scan on collection you could set up alert "Query Targeting: Scanned / Returned > 1".
    OPS Manager does not provide any details where it was triggered.
    it would be nice to get db/collection/query which caused this issue. Query still can be fast (for example, not many document in collection yet or hardware is idle/fast at the moment) and will not go to slow operation group.

  6. Support migrations to different snapshot stores

    Currently it is not possible to transition between snapshot store types.

    There are two options currently when transitioning to the new one.


    1. Terminate backups (deleting all previous snapshots)

    2. Create a new project and abandon the previous one to allow automated restores at a later time

    Both of these options are difficult to manage for large deployments. The first option requires you to store the snapshots elsewhere and disallows automated restores. The second option requires many operations and clutters the Ops Manager project list.

    Ideally we should be able to transition from any store location/type to any other location/type. One of…

  7. index review before sharding with OPS Manager

    Currently, when you use OPS Manager to shard a collection, it automatically creates a foreground index that exactly matches the sharding key, when such index doesn't exist. When the sharding key column(s) is(are)already prefixing an existing index, it's not sufficent.
    This is dangerous in Live environments because the whole database is blocked for a long time (sharded collections are usually big collections).
    So, several features could exist :
    - before continuing with sharding, OPS Manager warns that it needs to create this foreground index first. You can stop if you don't agree (and create this index by yourself first).
    -…

  9. Do not download EOL releases

    Currently our Ops Mgrs keep re-downloading EOL releases of mongodb, e.g. mongodb-linux-x8664-2.6.12, mongodb-linux-x8664-3.0.15, etc. Ops Manager should automatically exclude EOL releases - they are taking up unnecessary disk space.

  10. Improve backup process with automatic reparation of broken job

    Enhance the Ops Manager feature for the detecting of broken processes, validating its sanity, so that Ops Manager could "un-break" processes and start regular backups without any manual intervention.

  11. Ops Manager API call for Host Mappings

    This feature request is for a new Group/Project API call for the management of the host mappings created in Ops Manager from monitoring information. Whether it be an endpoint for "Reset Duplicates" or full featured create/delete of individual host mappings, both will alleviate issues where overlapping mappings affect monitoring in Ops Manager.

    Note: The issue of overlapping mappings may occur when a mongod process has moved/changed IP addresses multiple times. With enough cycling (as seen in Kubernetes clusters with frequent pod restarts), eventually a previously mapped IP address may now be associated with a different mongod process.

  12. Ability to send SNMPv3 Alert Traps for configured Ops Manager Alerts

    What is the problem that needs to be solved? Ops Manager Alerts should have possibility to send SNMPv3 Alert Traps to configured destinations. SNMPv3 provides better authentication, data encryption and message integrity in comparison to SNMPv2c protocol.

    Why is it a problem? (the pain) It is mandatory to use SNMPv3 in many enterprise deployments as SNMPv2c does plaintext community string authentication without encryption (SNMPv3 does MD5/SHA1 hashing for passwords and provides encryption for SNMP data).

  13. Add 4.4 tool to PATH

    Since MongoDB 4.4 the tools are located in another folder that is not included in the automation agent bash profile:

    [root@n1 mongodb-mms-automation]# cat /etc/profile.d/mongodb-mms-automation-agent.sh
    export PATH=/var/lib/mongodb-mms-automation/bin:${PATH}

    Would be nice to have also the mongo tools in the path

  14. Repilca Set Election - Even Number of Nodes

    WE have a 4 node replica set and when we removed 2 of the nodes at one time the election process didn't know how to elect a new primary. We would like the election process to accommodate an even number of replica set nodes.

  15. Support __exec setting for the MongoDB deployment in Automation

    The deployment that utilizes __exec setting is unable to import to Automation as well as it is unable to deploy the deployment by Automation with this setting.

  16. Improve backup job status in Backup jobs summary table

    When checking the backup job details for a 4.2 deployment, this is always reporting to be performing a "WT Checkpoint" even though it is not exactly generating a snapshot at that point in time.

    The request is to enhance the reporting for this summary table in order to get further details on what the Backup Module is doing at that precise point in time. If it is awaiting for the instruction to execute a snapshot, in the process of transferring blocks, etc.

  17. Include Replica Set Horizons in Connect to your Deployment Modal

    Clicking on the "Connect to this replica set" should open a modal that includes the Replica Set horizon host and port (if configured) in addition to the host's FQDN. This will help users determine their connection settings without requesting details from the kubernetes cluster administrators that deployed the database.

  19. SNMP traps for `AUTOMATION_AGENT_DOWN`, `MONITORING_AGENT_DOWN`, `BACKUP_AGENT_DOWN` alert types does not contain hostname information

    What is the problem that needs to be solved? SNMP traps for AUTOMATION_AGENT_DOWN, MONITORING_AGENT_DOWN, BACKUP_AGENT_DOWN alert types does not contain hostname information in .1.3.6.1.4.1.41138.1.1.1.4 (.iso.org.dod.internet.private.enterprises.mms.server.serverMIBObjects.mmsAlertObject.mmsAlertHostAndPort) OID.

    Why is it a problem? (the pain) User is blocked to act quickly on the alert and identify the host where Ops Manager's Automation/Monitoring/Backup Agent is in DOWN state. Missing <HOSTNAME>:<PORT> information at .1.3.6.1.4.1.41138.1.1.1.4 SNMP OID does not allow user to map AUTOMATION_AGENT_DOWN, MONITORING_AGENT_DOWN, BACKUP_AGENT_DOWN alert types into a particular hostname.
