  1. Terraform module for Ops Manager

    Since Ops Manager APIs seem to be very similar (if not, the same) as Atlas API, and since Atlas Terraform modules seem to run based on Atlas API, it would be very nice to have Terraform modules for Ops Manager.

  2. Disable Query Targeting: Scanned Objects / Returned alerts on specific, recurring aggregations.

    We run routine, recurring aggregation pipelines (essentially, summing up the values of different categories of transactions) on a 5-minute interval. These aggregation pipelines scan for all objects that match a certain type, then sum the cumulative value of certain values of those objects based on category. This means that we regularly have queries that scan >500,000 objects and consolidate them down to ~12 or so objects that are returned.

    In this specific case, I'm alright with the scan/return ratio being very high, and I don't want to be spammed with alerts every five minutes. However, I don't want to disable…

  3. 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.

  4. Using Ops Manager, I want to get an alert when a collection is a certain size or near no storage so that I can do an investigation

    As a DBA using Ops Manager, I want to get an alert when a collection is a certain size or near no storage so that I can do an investigation to see if there is abnormal data growth. As of right now, I can only monitor cluster data size.

  5. Restore a single database within a MongoDB cluster and not store the all the databases in a MongoDB

    As a DBA using Ops Manager, I want to restore a single database within a MongoDB cluster and not store the all the databases in a MongoDB cluster so that my restore only impacts a part of my cluster. As of right now, it restores the entire cluster with all database in it.

  6. Add compound indexes support for Ops Manager managed Sharding

    What is the problem that needs to be solved? Ops Manager Automation does not take into account compound indexes (https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/core/index-compound/), e.g. if we have { a: 1, b: 1 } index already exist Ops Manager will still create { a: 1 } index for a Shard Key.

    Why is it a problem? (the pain) This creates unnecessary indexes with performance impact on the MongoDB Server process.

  7. Enablement of Ops Manager Auditing similar to MongoDB's

    Hi all

    We would like to enable auditing for activities in Ops Manger itself, getting the information directly using the default audit logging options (filesystem / syslog).

    Currently we are getting the detailed information in OpsManager, we get some information in the audit.log log when config changes are made via Ops Manager, but not in detail what exactly had been modified in the log files.

    To establish a holistic, company wide auditing spanning over all levels (OS / DB / Application) taking use of standard auditing tools this would be highly beneficial.

    Regards, Roger

  8. Reset duplicates button for Ops Manager Admin System overview page

    Sometimes customer want to clean up the System Overview page and/or the application db from because:
    - They dismissed one or more Ops Manager server running Application servers or backup daemon components
    - Their hostnames / domains have changed over the time
    - Their hostnames have changed from lowercase to capital letters or vice versa because upgrading Ops Manager brought a JVM providing different values for getHostname() (this happens often in Windows environment).

    It would be nice to have a button or at least an API call similar to the project reset duplicates that forces Ops Manager to refresh the…

  9. Allow informational alerts to be sent to PagerDuty

    Right now informational alerts can't go to PagerDuty, OpsGenie, or VictorOps. Ideally all alert notifications should go to the same endpoint, even if those alerts are "informational" and no acknowledgement is required.

  10. Create a User in a Single Cluster

    When multiple clusters are added into an Ops Manager project, the only way to create a user account is to add it to all of the clusters in the project and to then add server IP Address restrictions to prevent the user from logging into servers other than the intended cluster. This would still create the user account on all of the clusters in the Ops Manager project.

    Users would need a way to create a user account on a specific cluster rather than all of the clusters of the project.

  11. There is currently no way to use the UI to search a given hostname at a Global Level within an Ops Manager deployment.

    Please provide a feature in OM so we can search globally a given HOSTNAME to know about its related Organization/Replica Set

  12. Properties option for a server node

    Up until Ops Manager version 4.0+, we are/were able to view "Properties" of all servers/Replica sets by clicking on the ellipsis option on the each server. But will the latest versions of Ops Manager, that option is no longer available. We are often looking to quickly identify the allocated resources such as CPU/RAM on servers to help troubleshoot and deduct if we need to add more resources, so this has been a helpful feature we have used. We would very much like to see this feature option to be revived in the current versions of Ops Manager 4.2 and 4.4.4.

  13. Project template defaults for replica set Attributes

    Our standard replica set deployments require a number of items to be set in the edit/modify area of each replica set...such as:
    sslMode
    directoryPerDB
    directoryForIndexes
    javascriptEnabled
    redactClientLogData

    Since we create hundreds of replica sets the amount of time spent repeatedly setting these attributes, which are considered "default" in our shop, adds up. Having the ability to set a template of defaults per project would save a great deal of time.

  14. Provide a UI for uploading release archives to the mongodb-releases directory

    When Ops Manager is in "Local Mode", a system administrator must manually populate the mongodb-releases directory.

    Please consider adding a GUI for uploading the releases over HTTP(s) from the Ops Manager admin panel. This will alleviate server access restrictions/issues, as well as provide a quick method of populating the releases from a workstation in an internet restricted environment.

  16. Request "Send SMS Test Message" tab similar to "Admin > Control Panel > Send Test Message" for email.

  17. Repilca Set Election - Even Number of Nodes

    WE have a 4 node replica set and when we removed 2 of the nodes at one time the election process didn't know how to elect a new primary. We would like the election process to accommodate an even number of replica set nodes.

  18. KMIP Server Host

    Ability to enter multiple values for "KMIP Server Host" under KMIP Server Configuration in the Backup Configuration page of the Ops Manager Config. This would be similar to entering multiple values for 'kmipServerName' for deployments. This would help in terms of HA for KMIP; use a secondary KMIP server if the primary were to be unavailable.

  19. 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.
