  1. 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

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Filter/Sort Process List View

    In previous versions of Ops Manager, you could filter the process list page. It would be nice to bring that back, so we could quickly identify processes which do not have recent pings, etc.

  5. Start MongoDB Agent service (`mongodb-mms-automation-agent.service`) automatically after OS restart, make it default behavior

    What is the problem that needs to be solved? MongoDB Agent service (mongodb-mms-automation-agent.service) does not start (by default (disabled; vendor preset: disabled)) automatically after OS reboot.

    Why is it a problem? (the pain) OS restarts can be frequent, and current default behavior (disabled; vendor preset: disabled) of MongoDB Agent not to start after OS restart causing additional downtime for customers.

  6. Grant permission to access Real Time tab to Project Read Only users

    Accessing the Real Time metrics tab requires at least the Project Monitoring Admin role but this role has other privileges to administer alerts and manage hosts as well.

    It is more appropriate to enable the read-only access user (Project Read Only role) to access the Real Time metrics tab.

  7. 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

  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…

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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?

  16. Change MongoDB Log Settings via API

    You can set MongoDB log rotation for mongod process on project level in the Ops Manager through: Deployment -> More -> MongoDB Log Settings. However there is no option to set it via API.
    It looks like there is option to set this parameters on process level (in the Automation Config), but Ops Manager is not accepting new value, like it does when setting values for Monitoring Log rotation and Backup Log rotation.
    It would be great to have option to automate this when creating a new project via API and setting all other attributes with script.

  17. Allow disabling Blockstore for assignment through the Ops Manager CRD

    By default, when enabling backups and configuring a Blockstore for an Ops Manager custom object, the specified Blockstore will be set as "Assignment enabled" in the UI.

    It would be helpful to expose the enable/disable button for the blockstore through the CRD since disabling it through the UI, results in the parameter being reverted every time the operator consolidates. This is useful for the case when more than a single store is configured and as a user you would like to disable the blockstore to make it unavailable for new backup jobs.

  19. Ops Manager - Allow SNMP traps on non standard ports

    Allow changing SNMP port from default (162) for customers who run SNMP on non-standard ports.

    Currently the port number of the SNMP trap receiver is hardcoded to 162.

  20. Document list of Alert conditions that post to the Activty Feed but not Alerts page

    Document list of Alert conditions that post to the Activty Feed but not Alerts page
    It seems like some "non-actionable" alert/event conditions (example: Host has Restarted) post to the Activity Feed but not the Alerts Page.
    Notifications are sent.
    I cannot find a list of these that post only to the Activity Feed so it would be nice to have them documented.
