  1. 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

  2. Disable the dropdown to add Agent functions on hosts that don't have the MongoDB Agent installed and were only imported for Backup/Monitori

    Disable the dropdown to add Agent functions on hosts that don't have the MongoDB Agent installed and were only imported for Backup/Monitoring.
    The elipsis (...) selections to add Monitoring & Backup Agent functions are available on hosts without the MongoDB Agent. If selected the function appears on the host as grey and standby. This is misleading. The options should not be available on hosts without the MongoDB Agent.

  3. Send `Monitoring is down` and `Backup is down` alerts for each MongoDB Agent (Monitoring/Backup Module) and include hostname information in

    What is the problem that needs to be solved? Monitoring is down and Backup is down alerts needs to be sent for each individual MongoDB Agent (Monitoring/Backup Module) which become down, Monitoring is down and Backup is down alerts should include hostname information in them.

    Why is it a problem? (the pain) Customer can't easily identify which MongoDB Agent (Monitoring/Backup Module) become down without hostname information available in the alert (in multi-project environment this becomes operational pain for the customer).

  5. Password policy enforcement

    Currently, MongoDB doesn't provide any way to enforce password policies. If there is some way for Ops Manager to enforce a configurable password complexity and age for user accounts managed through Ops Manager, that would be huge win. This can be as simple as adding UI-level validations to the create/edit user form.

  6. Attain granularity on the Ops manager backups & restore

    Backups:Under a project, in a single cluster we may deploy multiple databases which belongs to different applications that are somehow interlinked in terms of their functionality. Different databases requires different backup strategies, retention periods, and so different snapshot schedules. However, the level of granularity on Ops Manager "Continuous Backup" doesn't match the above requirement.

    Restore: How could we restore a single collection, or a database without touching the other databases/collections within a cluster? The restore process that we have today seems to be restoring the whole cluster and not to the level of database/collection. Queryable backup snapshot seems to be…

  7. mongocli feature request : add an option to specify the path to the CA file in the mongocli configuration.

    Currently while using mongocli to connect to Ops Manager via https, one needs to add the public CA certificate to local system's trusted certificate store. Please add a parameter in the configuration file where one can specify the path to the local CA file

  8. Make it possible to prevent incessant Automation log messages about unexpected field in process memory metrics map

    My automation manager posts an info message about unexpected fields in process memory metrics map every minute. It's polluting my logs. I would like a way to fix the underlying problem or, if it cannot be fixed, then don't tell me about it in the logs.

    Here are some examples:
    mongodb-data-prod-vm2.cloud.ca 2020-08-05 - 01:10:47 PM info runtimestatsPrinter Unexpected field in process memory metrics map: thp_enabled. Skipping

    mongodb-data-prod-vm2.cloud.ca 2020-08-05 - 01:10:47 PM info runtimestatsPrinter Unexpected field in process memory metrics map: speculationstorebypass. Skipping

  9. Allow customizing mongod port in kubernetes

    The additionalMongodConfig feature was a great addition to the Operator.

    Setting the spec.additionalMongodConfig.net.port to a value other than the default 27017 is not working as expected. The default port is still used despite the custom port value appearing in the MongoDB resource description/manifest. A common security compliance checklist often includes running services on non-default ports.

    Please consider allowing the net.port to be set to a custom value; this may have implications with the services that are automatically created in the cluster.

  10. 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.

  11. Install Managed MongoDB Processes as Services in Linux

    In Windows, managed MongoDB processes are installed as services. In Linux, they are not. It would be great if managed processes were installed as services so that system administrators would have better control over startup and shutdown behavior, among other things.

  12. Automation should handle multiple hostname aliases for each server

    In order to separate replication, client and administrative traffic, servers may have multiple network interfaces using different IP and hostname aliases associated with them.

    According to the requirements described on https://docs.opsmanager.mongodb.com/current/tutorial/provisioning-prep/#server-networking-access Automation currently can use only the server hostname defined as hostname -f and cannot use any of the other aliases matching to other IP addresses for the other machine host aliases.

    Please add some way to customize which host alias Automation should use as a configuration parameter for the Agent.

  13. In changing the Pager duty service key at cluster level, this key should automatically be used instead of making changes to each alert

    When we migrate from one Pager duty or Slack account to another, as we change the PD/slack service key at cluster level, shouldn't this key get used automatically instead of us going to each alert and recreating the PD/slack entries? It defeats the purpose of setting the PD/slack key at cluster level. And if we have multiple clusters in prod, we will pretty much have to modify alerts for all of them.

    The ticket number for reference is Case #00675142

  14. University MongoDB - Provide explicit Shell Address to Databases

    In places in the text in different units it says:
    "We are connected to the class atlas cluster from Compass".

    You could please be explicit with what that address is, since if one is coming back after a couple of days break and have forgotten how to connect to Compass or Mango Shell. If a link to that is provided its a lot faster to be back on track.

  15. Add a means for Ops Manager to expose blocks that have changed since a selected date/time or checkpoint.

    Add a means for Ops Manager to expose blocks that have changed since a selected date/time or checkpoint. With this, changed blocks can be written to compliant (e.g. immutable) storage systems with the backup consistency guarantees provided by Ops Manager.

  18. Allow customization of Alert's Subject/Body

    Currently alerts do not allow for any customization of the Subject or Body. It would be useful to allow customization of both the Subject and Body of emails and other alert methods. This would allow customers to add information, such as links to internal runbooks or documentation, to assist with resolving the alert.

  19. Add Timezone support to Ops Manager Application logs
