  1. Upgrade Node.js version (from v10 to v14/v16)

    It would be great if you can upgrade the version of Node.js used in Realm Functions (currently in version 10.18.1). Version 10.x, which was an LTS, has been unmaintained for many years. The end of life of Node v12 is scheduled for April 2022.

    Is it possible to upgrade Node to version 14 (at least)? Another feature would be to let us choose the Node.js runtime version directly from Realm UI or the CLI (it's possible for example with AWS Lambda).

    Working with Node v10 is really difficult for us since most of the dependencies are not compatible with it.

  2. Allow deeper relationships under Rules

    I really like being able to use GraphQL and how you can auto generate a schema but when trying to relate fields I noticed it would only let me relate top level fields.

    For example - we have "accounts" and "users" under accounts with user Id on a related object. But I cannot do related userId back to account.user.userid since user is an object. I was hoping after I generated a schema for all the collection I would be able to drill down deeper but no such luck.

  3. More Granular Realm UI Permissions

    At this time, the only permission that allows access to Realm is Project Owner; however, Project Owner grants permission to change a plethora of things inside Realm. In our case, we have testers who do not need the ability to change code. The testers only need to change Values and add users. Could a new permission class be created to support this?

  4. Actual API Documentation

    There is various documentation for the many Realm/Stitch SDKs but almost no information about the underlying API endpoints, this needs to change and we need some detailed docs for working with the API itself.

    I am trying to get an app running with the GraphQL API but have found working with the authentication APIs to handle auth tokens and sessions to be a bit of a nightmare. This page https://docs.mongodb.com/realm/graphql/authenticate/ has some useful information but doesn't even give the endpoints for logging out or explain how to properly handle the email sign up process using API endpoints in place of…

  5. External Dependencies Management (npm)

    A lot of 3rd party libraries don't work, even ubiquitous ones like Joi. We upload zipped node_modules and all we get are errors.

    Devs now spend time building simplified versions of these libraries so we don't get the full benefit of a using a battle-tested library and also waste time writing functions that we shouldn't need to write. This is a huge pain and a productivity killer.

  6. Use node modules in Functions

    As far as I understand currently it is not possible to use node/npm modules is Functions. Would be great to have it.

  7. Add retry policy to Atlas Trigger

    A failed Atlas trigger gets suspended and will not retry without manual intervention. Some transient conditions can be retried and it would be useful to configure a retry policy with a trigger (at the Realm Function level). Retry X times with Y back-off seconds between retries, then fail (plus notification policy).

  8. Add federated graph support

    Unable to upload apollo federation dependency on the beta version of MongoDB Realm, it would be great if that dependency would be supported soon.

    FYR: https://www.npmjs.com/package/@apollo/federation

  9. Deploy Application code from Bitbucket private repository

    Currently it is only possible to link a Github account for deployment.
    It would be great if we can use Bitbucket as well. I have my code in a private bitbucket repository and would love to have the ability to deploy from it.

  10. Add line number to function call error messages

    A simple line number of where a function fails would be incredibly useful. And a function name would be important too for when a function calls another function.

  13. Support for arrayFilters in Functions

    Can we add arrayFilters and other array update capabilities that already exist in MQL? Its is difficult to update arrays, and very easy to update an array in MQL in node.js for example.

  14. Terraform Provider

    It would be nice to be able to managed Realm Applications via Terraform, similar to how MongoDB Atlas can currently be managed via the mongodb_atlas from Terraform provider.

  15. Add two factor authentication

    It would be great to have an option for two factor authentication to increase security. Ideally this would be via authentication apps such as Microsoft Authenticator, email or SMS authentication would be viable too.

  16. Realm roles in Atlas Projects

    Currently we only have two roles available for Realm Users:
    1. Project Owner
    2. Project ReadOnly
    Would be great to have more roles for Realm Users with the ability to give access to specific Realm App or give access to Realm only without giving access to the entire project. Something like Realm WriteRead and Realm ReadOnly roles
    Thank you,
    Anton

  17. Search Users by Email

    In the users tab, I can only search by ID. If I don't have the users ID, it's nearly impossible for me to find a user in the list. Need to be able to search for a user by email ASAP. Thanks.

  18. MongoDB Realm vs Realm

    Hi, I am an existing Realm/Realm Cloud user and am struggling to understand what the MongoDB Realm offering is and how it compares with the existing Realm/Realm Cloud solution.

    Is there any documentation that explains what the difference is between the two solutions and what if any migration is required.

    It's not clear whether the latest cocoa Realm database v5.1.0 is still compatible with Realm Cloud nor is it clear whether there is any plan to continue supporting the current Realm Cloud solution. A nice clear description would be much appreciated.

    Regards
    Duncan

  19. function sandbox

    It would be great to have a function sandbox area, where you can write and called previously used functions (saved like notepad++ does) without having to create the function and commit it.

    This would be for trying thing out or performing quick tasks for which you don't want to go through all the hassle of formally creating a function.

  20. More descriptive errors

    We need more error codes for different situations. For example, using the wrong details while logging in returns 46 (Unknown), with a message indicating wrong credentials. In my app, 46 maps to a message like "An unknown error occurred. Please try again later.".

    It would be nice if wrong credentials had its own error type so I could send a more descriptive message.

    Please also consider this for any other error type that doesn't have a good reason for being Unknown.

    Thanks!
