  1. 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.

  2. 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),…

  3. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. Support Service Binding Specification for Kubernetes

    Service Binding Specification for Kubernetes standardizes exposing backing service secrets to applications. The spec is available here: https://github.com/k8s-service-bindings/spec
    This blog post would be helpful: https://muthukadan.net/kubernetes/binding/support-service-binding-specification-for-kubernetes/

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Display the feature compatibility version (FCV) in Cloud Manager/Ops Manager UI

    The FCV could be different than the MongoDB version. Also, sometime the FCV on different shards/CSRS in a sharded cluster might be different (e.g. FCV is upgraded on the shards, but for some reason FCV is not upgraded on the CSRS), and this could cause issues.

    It would be nice if FCV is displayed next to the MongoDB version information. So that we can spot out the discrepancy quickly.

  9. 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.

  10. Kubernetes Operator - Enable S3 Oplog store

    Currently, only Replica Sets are the only to deploy an Oplog Store with the Kubernetes Operator.
    This causes issues related to sizing for Ops Manager deployments managing a big number of projects.
    Enabling S3 Oplog Store would help a lot.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. Improvements for Datadog integration

    Some parameters for Datadog are not configurable in Ops Manager. For example, "tagging". Adding this functionality would make using Datadog easier.

  17. 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.

  18. update monitoring & backup agent credentials via automationConfig API instead of separate API calls

    Right now if you want to change the credentials for the monitoring agent or the backup agent, you've got to make separate API calls. Why not make it so that you can specify everything at once in the same automationConfig API PUT?

  20. Allow Ops manager to downgrade FCV

    Ops Manager UI (4.0 -4.4) does not allow downgrading of Feature Compatibility Version (FCV), once the FVC has been upgraded to a higher version. Ops Manager automatically
    removes the lower version from the supported FCVs once upgrade completes. But the cluster deployment allows downgrading one level using shell commands. This limitation makes it difficult when planning an upgrade as regression process are more difficult.
    We are in the process of upgrading the environment from 4.0 to 4.4 (which requires an intermediate upgrade to 4.2.). So the downgrade process is so difficult with Ops Manager UI.
