  1. Control logging behavior of mongosh

    It should be possible to control the logging behavior of mongosh, for example:

    • verbosity
    • what to log / log level
    • retention time
    • whether logging is enabled or not

  3. Display Atlas cluster name in command prompt, rather than internal slug

    When connected to an Atlas cluster, I can see the Atlas internal hostname slug in the command prompt:

    Atlas atlas-l1ugii-shard-0 [secondary] database_name>

    It would be easier if this displayed the Atlas hostname, that matches the UI, and includes the cluster name (e.g. "Atlas clustername-shard-0 [secondary] databasename>").

    This would help with distinguishing between multiple shell connections across multiple different clusters.

  4. syntax issues

    I have to use '.\mongosh' rather than '.\mongo' when using Power Shell windows
    Might be useful since the switch to mongoshell

  5. remove case sensitivity from tab search of commands

    currently mongosh uses case sensitive search of command on double tapping the tab key.

    While it seems adequate at first, entering a capital letter requires 2 key presses and it becomes annoying pretty fast for the good old mongo shell users.

  6. Retain multi-line input in history.

    Ideally, when using an inline text editor, the inline text editor would show the history command with its multi-lines retained.

  8. Paginate shell output

    When running a query or a command that returns a long output, the content scrolls off the screen and cannot be seen without using the terminal scrollbar.

    It would be nice if the content would only scroll to screen boundaries and pause like more or less.
