  1. Allow Regexp, or other solution, to look for groups in "SAML Group Member Attribute" field

    The Ops Manager authentification process through SAML requires that the user's groups are specified in a dedicated SAML attribute sent by the IDP, so the user can connect to Ops Manager.

    For this need, our IDP can only provide a field that contains free text. This field can contain many information, and can include special characters. We can add the Ops Manager groups in this field, among the existing text information.

    However we need Ops Manager to parse this free field and get the groups information, which is not possible for now.

    That's why we would like the implementation of…

  2. Rotate mongo logs

    When cluster is deployed, each mongo server start to generate a logfile "/var/log/mongodb-mms-automation/mongodb.log", we got an outage because it gets the disk full.
    It will be useful if we can specify a value to rotate and purge the log.

  3. Include CPU usage in Sharded Cluster Monitoring Overview

    In the sharded cluster monitoring overview it would be useful to also have the option to display the Process CPU usage to quickly identify shards which have a higher CPU load. Other hardware metrics might be useful as well.

  4. 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.

  5. Allow S3 Oplog Store to be defined and configured using the Operator.

    Ops Manager can utilize S3 storage for the Oplog Store. It should be possible to define and configure an S3 Oplog Store from the Operator.

  6. Change MongoDB Log Settings via API

    You can set MongoDB log rotation for mongod process on project level in the Ops Manager through: Deployment -> More -> MongoDB Log Settings. However there is no option to set it via API.
    It looks like there is option to set this parameters on process level (in the Automation Config), but Ops Manager is not accepting new value, like it does when setting values for Monitoring Log rotation and Backup Log rotation.
    It would be great to have option to automate this when creating a new project via API and setting all other attributes with script.

  7. 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…

    planned  ·  Andrey responded

    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.

  8. Allow to generate/download MongoDB Server Audit process logs

    Problem Statement,
    What is the problem? As of now (2021-03-17) Ops Manager does not support downloading MongoDB Server Audit process logs via UI/API. Atlas does have support for it (via GET /groups/{GROUP-ID}/clusters/{HOSTNAME}/logs/{LOG-NAME} API call).

    Why is this a problem? Users needs to be able to download MongoDB Server Audit process logs via Ops Manager, same way as they do for MongoDB Server process logs/FTDC and MongoDB Agent logs (this significantly simplify troubleshooting, when required). Some users require to download MongoDB Server Audit process logs programmatically to store them in Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) system.

    Proposal,
    * Add MongoDB…

  9. Support Azure blob storage with Ops Manager Backups

    Hello,

    This is a request for Ops Manager to support Azure blob storage as a snapshot store. Currently the following snapshot store options are supported: blockstore, AWS S3 bucket, File System Store.

    While it may be possible to use an S3 API to communicate between Ops Manager and Azure blob storage, thereby storing Ops Manager backups in Azure, this workaround is not officially supported by MongoDB and is thus risky to implement.

  12. 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.

  13. Add command for upgrade a cluster

    Currently there is no easy way to upgrade a cluster but we need to modify the file describing the cluster and push the full description.
    Would be nice to have a command like:

    mongocli om upgrade --version "4.2.10" --fcv "4.2" MyReplicaset

  15. Ability to send SNMPv3 Alert Traps for configured Ops Manager Alerts

    What is the problem that needs to be solved? Ops Manager Alerts should have possibility to send SNMPv3 Alert Traps to configured destinations. SNMPv3 provides better authentication, data encryption and message integrity in comparison to SNMPv2c protocol.

    Why is it a problem? (the pain) It is mandatory to use SNMPv3 in many enterprise deployments as SNMPv2c does plaintext community string authentication without encryption (SNMPv3 does MD5/SHA1 hashing for passwords and provides encryption for SNMP data).

  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. 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.

  18. 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.

  20. Send alert when RECOVERING node has failed due to being too stale to sync from any available node

    Ops Manager users with hundreds or even thousands of replica set members (hosts/nodes) need an alert that indicates a nodes is in RECOVERING state and is too far behind the oplog to recover without manual intervention. This information is present in the mongod log file. However, Ops Manager should generate a separate alert for this unique and important state. Without this alert, it is not immediately clear when a user needs take action to bring a replica set back to a healthy state.
