    We are about to start working on signing our images with Docker content Trust.

  2. Allow the Kubernetes Operator to delete a project

    Currently it is not possible to delete a project via kubectl command.

    As the Kubernetes Operator allows one to create a project (configmap) and deploy a replica set, we would expect it to also allow the deletion of a project so that we can fully automate the solution.

    While deletion of a deployment is possible via Kubernetes, deleting a MongoDB resource doesn’t remove it from the Ops Manager UI. You must remove the resource from Ops Manager manually. To learn more, see Remove a Process from Monitoring.


    Deleting a MongoDB resource for which you enabled backup doesn’t delete the resource’s snapshots. You must delete snapshots in Ops Manager.


    Find out more.


    Work is planned to remove Ops Manager as a prerequisite (though it's use will still be optional and supported) and as part of that we hope to address this deletion aspect.

  3. 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…

    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.

  5. Allow to pin specific MongoDB Agent version to be used

    What is the problem that needs to be solved? In some rare situations where upgrade of Cloud Manager's MongoDB Agent to the latest version leads to Golang panic (or any other critical issue) there's no way for Cloud Manager user to rollback MongoDB Agent version in case if this environment is running in Kubernetes Operator. The script which launch MongoDB Agent is using the latest version from Cloud Manager Project, without any option to change it other then editing the script itself which is not possible in Kubernetes pod.

    Why is it a problem? (the pain) If after Cloud Manager's…

    We're currently planning work to avoid pulling mongod and the agent from Ops Manager. This is expected to give the ability to manually control the version of the agent in use.

  6. Add support to convert a replica set to a sharded cluster in Kubernetes

    Currently it is not possible to use Ops Manager UI or Kubernetes Operator to convert Replica Set to Sharded cluster. Error : changed not allowed.

    Planned - we have a requirement to have this completed in time for MongoDB 9.0. But no timeline (yet) for delivering this within that timeframe. 

  7. There have been at least a few issues on Kubernetes Community Operator related to PVC expansion, yet this is not documented anywhere.

    There have been at least a few issues on Kubernetes Community Operator related to PVC expansion, yet this is not documented anywhere.

    Looking at closed issues, one may get an idea that this operation is impossible, but with the latest CSI it should be - it requires some handcrafting. On the other side Enterprise operator has this covered here - https://www.mongodb.com/docs/kubernetes-operator/stable/tutorial/resize-pv-storage/. I suggest writing similar how-to for the Community operator.
    My currently tested workflow for volume expansion is similar to this explained on the page above, but as for my knowledge Community operator doesn't allow this operation - as…
