  2. Allow conditions for all alerts based on DB/cluster name

    We have a need to route alerts based on our database/cluster's impacted instead of having them apply to any in the current project. I know some of them can condition based on host name, which uses the cluster name, but most alert types have no similar option.

    Examples would be:
    Search Index Build Complete
    Search Index Build Failed

    These are sent without conditions and even the message does not indicate what cluster they are for (although you can guess based on the collection name provided).

    We do not have the option to route these ourselves with a webhook, as the…

  4. Restore indexes using mongoimport - metadata.json

    When importing an archive from s3 we are given compressed gz files for the JSON data and a metadata.json file which has index info, however there is no efficient way to restore these indexes as mongoimport doesn't support creating indexes. Indexes need to be created manually. When needing to restore multiple collections this can take a very long time.
    It would be great if mongoimport could use this file to create indexes after an import (like mongorestore).

  6. Benchmark backups in Ops Manager

    It would be helpful if, on the Snapshot overview page or on the Admin -> Backup page, there was the ability to benchmark the backup to help identify bottlenecks.

    Allow the user to select a deployment to test and then do a random sampling of data (ie: 100MB) to a temporary Snapshot location and then graph out the metrics for things like Memory/CPU/Disk IO on the source host, Database performance, Backup Agent performance, Network throughput, Blockstore/File System Store/S3 write performance, etc.

    Then create a report based on this benchmark that can be sent to technical support for recommendations.

    This will…

  7. 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.

  8. 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…

  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…

  10. Snapshots taken by Ops Manager Backups should include config file

    When restoring a snapshot through Ops Manager, automation will create the config file for you. But if you're restoring a snapshot manually, there's no config file! Surely we can include a sample mongod.conf withe sufficient information filled out to help a user get up and running again.

    We are going to expose this via mongocli first as it would probably makes a fastest solution.

  12. Make snapshot retention policy more customisable

  13. Backup Daemon should check for the available filesystem before starting a groom job

    When a groom job starts, it might get stuck or fail if the available disk space is not enough to copy all live blocks to another directory.

    It would be helpful if the Backup Daemon checks the available disk space before starting a groom job, and notifies the user:
    1. via Ops Manager UI
    2. report it in the logs
    3. sends an alert that the upcoming/scheduled groom job would not start due to low disk space.

  14. custom defined roles In OPS Manager

    We need a custom defined role to perform specific functions in the OPS Manager.

    For Example --> We need a custom defined role which can perform subset of functions from Project Automation Admin Role + Project Read Only Role + rs.stepDown() functionality

    Project Automation Admin Role:

    View deployments.
    Provision machines.
    Edit configuration files.
    Download the MongoDB Agent.
    + Project Read Only role.

    Project Read Only Role:

    Activity
    Operational data
    Ops Manager Users
    Ops Manager User roles.

    ** This feature becomes very useful to contain the access of certain privileges and to have the flexibility tailormade privileges instead of giving the…

  15. Build Ops Manager packages for ARM architecture

    The new Graviton instance types in AWS seem very promising from a cost/peformance perspective. We would love to be able to run our Ops Manager cluster on these new instance types, but there currently aren't any packages available for ARM architectures!

  16. trigger a queryable Backup Snapshot restore via Ops Manager public API

    We would like to periodically provision queryable snapshots on a programmatic basis (aka Ops Manager public API call) to easily get a consistent dump of sharded clusters in order to put those dumps in a "very safe location". We want to use this as part of a last resort backup strategy. The idea is that a dump is much easier to be restored by a "last resort restore app" compared to the http-downloaded plain data files.

    One other option to extract the contents of a sharded cluster would be to use "Long Running Queries" but this cannot be used along…

  17. Loadbalance functionality for Ops Manager

    When Ops Manager is under heavy load from many active database services, f.e. to handle backup snapshots, the recommendation from the case support portal is to use a loadbalancer in front of Ops Manager.
    It would be great, if Ops Manager could have this as an integrated functionality to forward connections from agents to additional Ops Manager instances.
    Background: Our nTSE did confirm, that we could set a different Ops Manager URL in the agent config, but the transferred data from this agent is still sent to the initially configured Ops Manager instance.

  18. Add ability to transition WiredTiger encryption-at-rest from local keyfile encryption (LKE) to KMIP

    If you are using local key file encryption and backing up your MongoDB deployment using Ops Manager, backups won't work correctly if you upgrade to MongoDB 4.2. The correct solution is to switch your encryption to KMIP. But if you try doing that, automation will get stuck!
