  2. Automated restores between multiple Ops Manager deployments

    Ability to utilize API and/or UI to restore a snapshot downloaded from one Ops Manager deployment to a separate distinct Ops Manager deployment.

    Some environments require separation of Production and Staging systems, including Ops Manager deployments. It is desirable to use Production data in some testing scenarios. Currently the data has to be loaded or restore manually.

  3. Kubernetes Operator: Ops Manager backup infrastructure automated removal

    MongoDB Kubernetes Operator can manage OpsManager Resources including Backup infrastructure.
    When Users want to disable backup infrastructure, the Operator does not remove BackupDeamon Stateful set or disables the backup configuration.
    This request is to make Operator clean up Backup configuration for OpsManager and delete K8S resources as well reconfigure OpsManager

  4. Use the TLS options instead of the SSL options in Automation Config of MongoDB v4.2

    As the SSL Options are deprecated since MongoDB v4.2 but Ops Manager Automation still utilizes SSL options in the automation configuration for MongoDB v4.2. It will be best that Ops Manager v4.2+ will utilize TLS options in the Automation Config of their managed MongoDB v4.2 deployments.

  5. Ability to to turn on audit log compression/deletion

    Ops Manager currently allows the ability to rotate audit logs based on the threshold settings in the Update MongoDB Log Settings modal but audit.logs do not compress/delete as the mongodb.logs do from the same modal. We would like the ability to either toggle compression/deletion of audit.log in that modal or a separate modal. We think a separate modal would be better since audit.logs may be used for security forensics and require a longer retention period.

  6. Allow assignment of Backup Resources before starting Backup Job

    For very large clusters, ideally backup resources should be assignable before the backup begins. For each shard and config server, assignment of the following would assist in scaling Ops Manager backups.


    • Snapshot Store

    • Oplog Store

    • Backup Daemon (if using FCV <= 4.0)

    Starting the backup could trigger an email to the Backup Administrator who could then assign these resources on the Admin page.

  7. Change namespace option on mongomirror

    I was wondering why you can migrate data but you actually (as far I as saw) cannot change the database name during the process of migration (not using mongod/mongorestore unix/win commands but Atlas directly).

    From the technical support:

    "This is because Live Migration using mongomirror as an underlying process, which in this case tails the oplog and recreates the data exactly as is. This tool is typically used to minimize downtime, especially in production environments, for users who are migrating their data as is while writes are still occurring on the source instance. "

    However, as I responded:

    "Ok thanks…

  8. Add configuration option to disable seedSecondary scripts in snapshots

    Currently each snapshot includes the seedSecondary scripts that no longer work for MongoDB 3.6 or greater.


    -r-x-w-r-t 1 107 65534 767 Jan 30 11:40 seedSecondary.sh
    -rw-r--r-- 1 107 65534 754 Jan 30 11:40 seedSecondary.bat

    Please add an option to disable adding these files to snapshots or remove them completely as they are deprecated for MongoDB 3.6+.

  9. Deploy MongoDB across different Kubernetes clusters

    MongoDB Operator can only deploy and manage MongoDB in a single Kubernetes cluster. However, for DR and global apps, it is important to deploy a single DataBase across multiple Kubernetes clusters to allow for DR or globally distributed apps.

    We are going to start POC in July to figure this out. Our goal is to form a single cluster that can fallback between different K8S clusters.

  10. Provide recurring/daily reporting on backup status from Ops Manager

    Ops Manager should generate a recurring/daily report of the status of all backups. This report should include at least a list of successful snapshots, a list of unsuccessful snapshots (over the configured reporting period), and the latest successful snapshot for each deployment being backed up. Additionally, this report may include resource availability such as storage available for future snapshots.

  11. Provide mechanism for internal password rotation of the automation user

    Ops Manager automation currently uses an mms-automation user for node management, but the password for that user is set once and stays forever unless it is updated via the Ops Manager API.

    This feature would provide a mechanism that allows this password to be re-generated via the UI or an API call and have it automatically updated on the managed mongod instances as well.

  12. Make snapshot retention policy more customisable

    Make the retention policy of Ops Manager snapshots customisable so we can choose custom values (like 21) to be more flexible with the settings.

  14. Federate different Ops Manager instances

    When multiple Ops Managers are running across multiple environments it is difficult see the overall picture.
    A a federated dashboard that can provide a view into different environments, see overall list of clusters and some basic information about them.

    We are going to address this later in July-August.
    When Backup configuration is straight forward, workflow around deleting or modifying it is a bit more complicated. We Would like to get it right.
