  1. Enable Ops Manager alerts on any FATAL or ERROR lines in the mongod/mongos logs

    What is the problem that needs to be solved?

    All possible error states and failures reported in the mongod and mongos log files are not raised as alerts in the Ops Manager alerting system. This prevents users from configuring alerts on important events in MongoDB deployments.

    Why is it a problem? (the pain)

    For some users specific errors such as FATAL or ERROR lines in the mongod log need to be alerted and addressed with urgency. Since the specific high priority event is different for different users, a configurable, string matching (regex) driven alerting system that constantly monitors the mongod

  3. MongoDB Agent alters the root $PATH variable

    The MongoDB Agent installation via RPM adds the /var/lib/mongodb-mms-automation/bin to root's $PATH by placing the mongodb-mms-automation-agent.sh script under the /etc/profile.d:
    $ pwd
    /etc/profile.d
    $ sudo cat mongodb-mms-automation-agent.sh
    export PATH=/var/lib/mongodb-mms-automation/bin:${PATH}

    This breaks my customers security standards.

    Moving the script does not appear to affect the functionality of the MongoDB Agent and updating the agent via the OM UI does not add back the script.

    We would like the ability to either select the contents of the MongoDB Agent rpm or be asked during the rpm installation whether or not to install the mongodb-mms-automation-agent.sh script.

  4. Allow configuring custom builds at the organisation or global level (Admin panel)

    It must be done at the project level at the moment, generating an operational costs for those environments with a large number of projects.

  5. Implement IAM role authentication for AWS SES in Ops Manager

    At the moment using AWS SES for email delivery in Ops Manager requires AWS Access Key and Secret Key. Please implement the IAM role authentication for this option as it has been done for the S3 endpoints.

  6. Make the option of "security.TransitionToAuth" available through Ops Manager Advanced Configuration Options

    Currently the option of "security.TransitionToAuth" is not available in Ops Manager as "transitionToAuth" is automatically added to each node in a rolling fashion by the Automation agent and then ultimately removed when authentication is finally turned on for all nodes.

    Allowing this option through Ops Manager will enable the mongod to accept and create authenticated and non-authenticated connections to and from the connected clients. Thus the clients can use this feature to avoid downtime at their end while the connection settings are updated to use the appropriate user to connect to mongod.

  7. The Get Host, Process, System Measurements Ops Manager API doesn't exactly provides hostInfo.system.memLimitMB.

    Add to The Get Host, Process, System Measurements Ops Manager API the hostInfo.system.memLimitMB.
    Or add an API to get the pings value.

  8. Ability to customize subject line for System & Global Alerts

    Currently there's no way to customize the subject line of either a system or global alert. The subject line only has the project name & time. It doesn't even say why the alert was generated until the email alert is opened. Having the ability to modify the subject line, even if it's to certain predefined fields such as alert condition for example would be helpful in addressing alerts in an efficient and effective manner.

  9. adminCredentials secret should always be source of truth for OpsManager

    The secret is only taken into account by OpsManager initially when OpsManager is deployed. As soon as the password of this user is changed in OpsManager, this secret is out of sync.

    From the docs: "Use these credentials to log in to Ops Manager for the first time. Once Ops Manager is deployed, you should change the password or remove this secret."
    https://docs.mongodb.com/kubernetes-operator/v1.4/tutorial/plan-om-resource/#prerequisites

    Option 1: This secret should be in-sync with the OpsManager database. Preferably the sync should be from the k8s secret to the OpsManager database.

    Option 2: Create a CRD "MongoDBOpsManagerUser" that handles User/Password management for OpsManager similar…

  10. Make Ops Manager credentialstool available for other MongoDB components

    This will allow other MongoDB components to encrypt credentials with the use of the same Ops Manager credentialstool: https://docs.opsmanager.mongodb.com/current/tutorial/encrypt-user-credentials/index.html

  11. Provide safety mechanism for limiting MongoDB versions amongst different projects

    Restrict the user depending on the type of project: dev, prod, etc to select a specific set of MongoDB Server versions that can be deployed.

    Prior to 4.2 this was accomplished with version manager.

  12. Periodically notify users of unused versions located in versions directory

    As a safety measure for admins in Ops Manager to avoid facing issues due to unnecessary disk occupation under the Ops Manager installation directory:

    Send periodic notifications (configurable) i.e: once a month; to notify what binaries are not being used by none of the components in their environment so they can evaluate to delete them in order to free up space on their Ops Manager servers.

  13. Prevent users from importing a replica set or shard with the same name as other pre-existing replica sets/shards

    When a user imports a cluster into a project with the same name, it causes issues like breaking backups of pre-existing clusters.

    Checking the replica set name against the names of other replica set names will prevent having to terminate backups and remove and re-import clusters, starting over.

  15. Atlas Open Service Broker - Roles

    Is it possible to add the support for user roles to the bind api for the Atlas Open Service Broker?

    Customers that are currently using the OSB are limited in that they are having to separately manage the creation and assignment of roles.

  17. Headless OPS Manager deployment

    Currently Ops Manager CRD deployment requires configuration using GUI which is a manual step. An option completely define all OPS Manager settings / Org in declarative manner via yaml will be great in building completely automated CI/CD Pipelines

  19. Apply Project Maintenance Windows to Global Alerts

    Apply Project Maintenance Windows to Global Alerts

    Make the existing Project-level maintenance windows also silence Global alerts associated with the Project.

    We have many projects that share the Global Alerts and do not want to turn off all global alerts as we still need that alerting for the projects that are not being worked on.

    In combination with the existing API for Project Maintenance Windows, this really allows full control.

  20. Allow configuring Ops Manager to ignore proxy for internal requests

    A very common Enterprise HTTP Proxy configuration is to deny requests from local networks (10.0.0.0/8, 172.16.0.0/12, 192.168.0.0/16).

    In hybrid mode, the Backup Mode attempts to download the binaries from itself locally through the proxy. This brings to errors as the proxy is blocking the local traffic.
