  1. Create Ops Manager API endpoint to download mms0.log files

    We should expand the Ops Manager API to provide mms0.log downloads the same way we allow mongod deployment log downloads. This will help users with diagnostics when they deploy many Ops Manager instances via the kubernetes operator but do not yet have centralized logging.

  3. Only download to /mms/mongodb-releases/ those versions actually in use in a deployment

    /mms/mongodb-releases/ is continually updated with the most current minor release of each major version which can fill the partition.
    This request is for "Only download to /mms/mongodb-releases/ those versions actually in use in a deployment"
    eg if I am only using 4.2.20 in my actual deployments only download the most recent 4.2.x and not 3.6.x
    of course if I do decide to deploy a 3.6.x deployment this FR would need to automatically be bypassed and download my 3.6.x and the most recent 3.6.x.
    This request is similar to but not the same as another Feature Request:
    [Do not download EOL…

  4. Support rolling rebuild index

    In some particular situation indexes need to be rebuild.
    It would be nice to support a rolling index rebuild like Ops Manager does for the standard create index.

  6. Update automation config through API without pushing entire config file

    For updating any Automation managed parameter, the only method through API is involving pushing the entire Automation config (which is a json file of hundreds lines) with modifications/addition all together.

    Even though I just want to update one single value.

    Is it a bit dangerous that there may be human mistake when modifying such a large json file. Wrong configuration may be push to the server.

    Graceful if there is a feature which allow user to partial update the configuration through API.

  7. Ability to configure all destinations for SNMPv2c Alert Traps in a single place

    What is the problem that needs to be solved? Ops Manager needs to have ability to configure all destinations for SNMPv2c Alert Traps in a single place (so that single place needs to be updated instead of dozens of individual Ops Manager Alerts).

    Why is it a problem? (the pain) In case if there's a change in SNMPv2c Alert Trap destination(s), it becomes effort to change the respective hosts for each of the alert. This process requires some time (unless customer script it via Ops Manager's API) if amount of configured Ops Manager Alerts is high, and the process itself…

  8. Improve backup process with automatic reparation of broken job

    Enhance the Ops Manager feature for the detecting of broken processes, validating its sanity, so that Ops Manager could "un-break" processes and start regular backups without any manual intervention.

  9. Encrypt Password LDAP Query User

    The LDAP Query user's password appears in plain text in mongod.config file. The ability to mask its password in automation config file using credentialstool would mitigate a security risk.

  11. Include Replica Set Horizons in Connect to your Deployment Modal

    Clicking on the "Connect to this replica set" should open a modal that includes the Replica Set horizon host and port (if configured) in addition to the host's FQDN. This will help users determine their connection settings without requesting details from the kubernetes cluster administrators that deployed the database.

  12. Send `Monitoring is down` and `Backup is down` alerts for each MongoDB Agent (Monitoring/Backup Module) and include hostname information in

    What is the problem that needs to be solved? Monitoring is down and Backup is down alerts needs to be sent for each individual MongoDB Agent (Monitoring/Backup Module) which become down, Monitoring is down and Backup is down alerts should include hostname information in them.

    Why is it a problem? (the pain) Customer can't easily identify which MongoDB Agent (Monitoring/Backup Module) become down without hostname information available in the alert (in multi-project environment this becomes operational pain for the customer).

  13. Attain granularity on the Ops manager backups & restore

    Backups:Under a project, in a single cluster we may deploy multiple databases which belongs to different applications that are somehow interlinked in terms of their functionality. Different databases requires different backup strategies, retention periods, and so different snapshot schedules. However, the level of granularity on Ops Manager "Continuous Backup" doesn't match the above requirement.

    Restore: How could we restore a single collection, or a database without touching the other databases/collections within a cluster? The restore process that we have today seems to be restoring the whole cluster and not to the level of database/collection. Queryable backup snapshot seems to be…

  14. 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

  15. 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.

  16. Install Managed MongoDB Processes as Services in Linux

    In Windows, managed MongoDB processes are installed as services. In Linux, they are not. It would be great if managed processes were installed as services so that system administrators would have better control over startup and shutdown behavior, among other things.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
