  1. More fine granular OpsManger roles for API CRUD operations

    More fine granular OpsManger roles for API CRUD operations

    In order to generate API Keys users need some pretty powerful role https://docs.opsmanager.mongodb.com/current/reference/api/org-api-keys/. Same for project API Keys https://docs.opsmanager.mongodb.com/current/reference/api/project-api-keys/.

    Our understanding is that user who can create api keys could also self promote themselves to super admins which is something we don't want and would be a security concern to us. (And admins normally have access to far more things than just user mgmt)

    Additionally it would be beneficial to pass in an desired api key - e.g. for initial provisioning and give admins the chance to reset/rotate an…

  2. Automation - Improve import for automation when keyfile doesn't match

    Starting with MongoDB 4.2 we are able to rotate the internal authentication keyfiles in a rolling fashion with the procedure described here:
    https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/tutorial/rotate-key-sharded-cluster/

    Currently when you import for automation a cluster that is using a different keyfile than the one in the automation config a bouncerestart is triggered. We can avoid it by doing a rolling rotation of the keyfile.

    The old keyfile should be kept and the new one appended to it in a rolling fashion. We may have already this implemented for the "Rotate keyfile" feature present in the Security tab page.

  3. Release K8S Ops Manager image when Ops Manager release is out

    Currently there is a time lag between the Ops Manager version releases and the availability of K8S images to be used with the MongoDB Kubernetes Operator.

    It would be nice if they are released at the same time.

  4. Cloud Manager should offer Feature Compatibility Version setting for new clusters

    When creating new clusters in Cloud Manager, there isn't an option to create them with a specific FCV. We just had a need to build a 4.2 cluster with FCV 4.0, and had to do it manually while shutting down automation.

  5. add details to alert Query Targeting: Scanned / Returned to identify what triggered it

    If you want to catch full scan on collection you could set up alert "Query Targeting: Scanned / Returned > 1".
    OPS Manager does not provide any details where it was triggered.
    it would be nice to get db/collection/query which caused this issue. Query still can be fast (for example, not many document in collection yet or hardware is idle/fast at the moment) and will not go to slow operation group.

  6. 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

  7. Ability to customize subject line for System & Global Alerts

    Currently there's no way to customize the subject line of either a system or global alert. The subject line only has the project name & time. It doesn't even say why the alert was generated until the email alert is opened. Having the ability to modify the subject line, even if it's to certain predefined fields such as alert condition for example would be helpful in addressing alerts in an efficient and effective manner.

  8. Make Ops Manager credentialstool available for other MongoDB components

    This will allow other MongoDB components to encrypt credentials with the use of the same Ops Manager credentialstool: https://docs.opsmanager.mongodb.com/current/tutorial/encrypt-user-credentials/index.html

  9. Provide safety mechanism for limiting MongoDB versions amongst different projects

    Restrict the user depending on the type of project: dev, prod, etc to select a specific set of MongoDB Server versions that can be deployed.

    Prior to 4.2 this was accomplished with version manager.

    we have certain instances where we have more than one databases for their own respective functionality. and we want to keep their backups separate from each other. would separate or individual backup/restore process is available through Ops Manager?

  11. restore

    it would be useful to have directly in OpsManager the ability to restore a single database from shapshot.

  12. Allow to configure separate SNMP v2C community for SNMP v2C Heartbeat Traps and SNMP v2C Alert Traps

    What is the problem that needs to be solved? Allow to configure separate SNMP v2C community for SNMP v2C Heartbeat Traps and SNMP v2C Alert Traps.

    Why is it a problem? (the pain) As of now (2020-03-24) there's no way to configure separate SNMP v2C community for SNMP v2C Heartbeat Traps and SNMP v2C Alert Traps (snmp.community controls both, Heartbeat and Alert Traps sent from Ops Manager's Application Server), some SNMP Monitoring Teams require different SNMP v2C communities for different set of SNMP v2C Traps (to separate Heartbeat Traps and Alert Traps).

  13. Allow Point-In-Time restores going back to a configured amount of hours/days

    What is the problem that needs to be solved? Allow Point-In-Time restores going back to a configured amount of hours/days (similar to Ops Manager).

    Why is it a problem? (the pain) Oplogs are captured for the last 24 hours only, and sometimes the requirement is to be able to execute Point-In-Time restores for longer than 24 hours (48 hours, etc. (to be defined by customer's project/goal)).

  14. Group Host Mapping IPs to be added by default to Programmatic API Keys IP Whitelisting

    As part of the Programmatic API Keys introduced in MongoDB Ops Manager 4.2, it would be good to have the IPs listed in the Host Mappings of a Project Deployment to be added as default whitelisted IPs when setting up a Programmatic API Key for same Project.

  15. Single Project Programmatic API Keys should not require Org User Admin role for IP Whitelists update

    When setting a Programmatic API Key in the MongoDB Ops Manager for a given Project, it seems Project Owners are unable after setting the Key to update the IP Whitelist as they require Organization User Admin role to perform such action (screenshot attached).

    I guess this makes sense if the same Programmatic API Key is shared between multiple Projects inside the same Organization, but not really if this is applied only to one single Project (i.e. Project Owners should be able to amend the IP Whitelisting of their own API Keys).

    I wonder if this could be enhanced in further…

  17. Kubernetes Operator: Ops Manager backup infrastructure automated removal

    MongoDB Kubernetes Operator can manage OpsManager Resources including Backup infrastructure.
    When Users want to disable backup infrastructure, the Operator does not remove BackupDeamon Stateful set or disables the backup configuration.
    This request is to make Operator clean up Backup configuration for OpsManager and delete K8S resources as well reconfigure OpsManager

  18. Add configuration option to disable seedSecondary scripts in snapshots

    Currently each snapshot includes the seedSecondary scripts that no longer work for MongoDB 3.6 or greater.


    -r-x-w-r-t 1 107 65534 767 Jan 30 11:40 seedSecondary.sh
    -rw-r--r-- 1 107 65534 754 Jan 30 11:40 seedSecondary.bat

    Please add an option to disable adding these files to snapshots or remove them completely as they are deprecated for MongoDB 3.6+.

  19. 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.
