    Thank you for the submission, however we already added this feature about a year ago. In the "review and deploy" window OM 4.4+ will warn if a change is likely to cause a restart with "These changes will cause processes to undergo a safe, rolling restart." Is there perhaps a specific case where you did not get this message?

    Thank you for the submission. Within Atlas we are able to offer this feature as all aspects of the stack are managed together, allowing MongoDB to perform a variety of checks to ensure the test does not result in an impacting event. Within Ops Manager we are unable to offer a similar level of insurance and so will not release this feature to Ops Manager. However, we have seen our users implement their own test failover scenarios using their own testing infrastructure and tools, including Ops Manager as a part of that stack, to perform the orchestration required for controlled testing.

    Want to update those voting here - we've discussed how the cloud backup policy was implemented and due to feedback plan to re-architect it. Will continue to provide updates as we get closer to that work. Thank you!

    Thank you for posting your feedback. Based on this and other feedback we've updated the documentation with better examples of how to modify the backup policy, which will go out with our next release. However you can see the PR here: https://github.com/mongodb/terraform-provider-mongodbatlas/pull/259/files. If you have a chance to check it out we'd appreciate feedback!

    Thank you for the feedback Jonas. Sent you a direct message for more information on the specific tools you use but feel free to post here as well.

    Thank you Nischal for the confirmation. Will update with any progress here.

    Hi all, I'm the Product Manager for our Terraform provider and want to thank everyone for the great feedback via the suggestion and to Andrew's question. I'd like to share some information and then ask for further input.

    Currently when you create a project via the Atlas API or UI a default set of recommended alerts is created. As the provider uses the API the alerts are created but since Terraform did not create them the only way, as noted here, to manage them in Terraform is to create a resource for each alert and import them.

    There are a few possible ways to solve this and based on my experience the suggested solution here, to create an API parameter for projects to allow one to set auto alert creation to false, creating no alerts is likely the best. Do all agree this would be a good solution for your use case? Any concerns around this you’d like to surface?

    Once concern/ask raised here is that if we do allow the ability to turn alert auto creation off that we provide examples of the current default alerts for Terraform, as they are a great set of alerts to start with. One possibility would be for someone to contribute their Terraform configuration for the current default alerts to the repository and contributors can maintain/add to them over time (https://github.com/mongodb/terraform-provider-mongodbatlas). Would be curious if any would like to contribute in this way?

    Again thank you all for the feedback. -Melissa

    Hi Gergely, Thank you for the feedback. I'll move this to the backup section for Atlas as we'd need that as a feature first before we could support in Terraform. Moving there will allow it to be more easily seen by the right people here. Thanks! Melissa

    Hi Sadok, Thank you for the submission. We've intentionally not included this feature in our provider as state management of a temporary resource can prove problematic in Terraform. We have, however, created a secret engine for managing Atlas database users with HashiCorp vault (included in the Vault binary) that allows for programmatic management of users with a lease that many find inline with their security requirements. Thank you, Melissa

    Hi Ravindra and other here, Currently the Atlas API focuses on administration functions and the authentication to that is via a programmatic key that does not have access to the data layer, since our Terraform provider covers this API it is providing functions inline with the capabilities of the API. However, it would be great to know more around use cases that are driving this request. If you'd like to share/discuss it would be great to talk. Feel free to reply here or reach out to me directly, melissa.plunkett@mongodb.com. -Melissa

    We released support for third party integrations today. However we cannot support OAuth2 in Terraform until our API supports it. I will move this request to the Monitoring and Metrics teams forum, which will help surface it to the correct team. Thanks for the submission!

    Hi Edward - Glad to hear you love MongoDB, that's great! It would be great to know more about your use case that requires both eu-west-2 and programmatic user of M0s, our free tier in Atlas. Would you be open to speaking directly or sharing more here?

    Also, I'm going to move this request to our main Atlas forum here as Terraform supports what is available via the Atlas API. Currently M0 creation is not supported by the API so not supported by Terraform.

    Thanks!

    Wanted to provide an update on this request. I've investigated this issue with multiple internal teams and the path forward we are following follows. First we will update the UX and docs to better explain why audit logs are rotated but not compressed/deleted when automation is managing mongoDB logs. It is currently confusing and can be greatly improved.

    Second, we will be able to consider supporting the compression/deletion of audit logs with automation when the MongoDB server logrotate command can handle mongodb system logs and audit logs separately (https://jira.mongodb.org/browse/SERVER-19470)

    Please feel free to reach out directly if you have any comments/questions you prefer to make privately, melissa.plunkett@mongodb.com

    Note - The current behavior is intended hence the suggestion to add compression and deletion of audit logs is indeed a feature request.  When the rotation for audit logs was added a significant portion of input at the time was that the same process that then compresses and deletes server logs should not impact audit logs as their use and security scope are often significantly different.   However the input provided here will help direct if having a similar capability, set for only audit logs, is needed.

    Hi Samuel. Thank you for the feedback. Let me look into this and see what happened in the support case so I can provide a response. If you'd like to reach out directly in the mean time my direct contact is melissa.plunkett@mongodb.com.
