    We do prioritize and are working on active dependencies right now: those dependencies will take us some time to work through. In terms of why we work on many other things in parallel rather than only this wonderful feature, it's because we have tens of thousands of customers and 150k sign-ups each month, including many that are just starting their MongoDB journeys for whom ensuring we have the right abstractions and assistance throughout is paramount, so we invest across the lifecycle in capabilities to do so. Our customers also pull us in the direction of adding aperture-expanding capabilities to do more with their data. And finally, we have many large-scale sophisticated workloads powering some of the most popular applications in the world which require a variety of mission criticality capabilities to keep pushing the boundaries of what's possible. In summary, we have to balance across many important objectives. And developer experience, including offering an intuitive look and feel that developers want is absolutely a priority, it's just not something we can stop all other work to do. We will get there. I appreciate your passion and enthusiasm and ask you to bear with us through this process with patience.

    Hi Manan,

    On the contrary: we follow this very closely and read every comment. Many of us, myself included, are very passionate about delivering dark mode in the future. We are also balancing this investment against our customers' other mission critical requirements and have to maintain a balance. In the interests of transparency, we are actively working on key dependencies to enable a more flexible front-end experience including dark mode in the future--timeline remains multiple quarters out.

    Hi Algün,

    Thanks for suggesting this--I'd personally love to do this some day as I use dark mode almost everywhere. Out of curiosity, can you add any more detail around how important this is to you? Are we the only light mode part of your daily dev stack? If so it'd be good to know.

    -Andrew

    Geoffrey, I completely agree--we owe updates to you and our broader customer base and have fallen behind in some cases and your post here helps us do better. We will be in touch to have a more comprehensive roadmap conversation with you

    Hi Brian, Geoffrey, thank you for suggesting this. It's something that hasn't been high on our radar yet since it's rare that customers request >100 DB users: I can certainly understand the interest in this capability however as I know what it's like to need to go beyond soft limits with cloud services. I could see this becoming something accessible via the administrative API eventually.

    Geoffrey, for what it's worth custom roles are only *applied* via particular database users which as you describe, can in turn be applied to particular clusters in the project: as a result this opens up a lot of flexibility. I am very sorry to hear you feel this has driven you to utilize multiple projects--we will be in touch with you to learn more

    Hi Pierre,

    This is actually possible today if you use Atlas Data Lake's little-known data federation capability to essentially build a federated database that environment: it can even go cross-cluster if you can believe it! We're working to make this more discoverable in our UX

    Cheers

    Hi Pavel, One thing to consider is actually to use Atlas Data Lake to build a federated layer into an *Analytics* node on a cluster and then authorize a DB user to only that Atlas Data Lake env

    Great concept Steve, for what it's worth you can self-manage the mongomirror util to do this today; we'd love to eventually do this via the API

    Hi Om,

    It goes without saying that this is very concerning to hear: data integrity is the top priority for any database. Have you opened a support inquiry? It's vital that we get to the bottom of what happened. (I wonder if you may be seeing the same data you loaded sorted in a different way than you expect and may be interpreting that as a jumble--it's important we help you confirm)

    Hi Jimmy,

    Thanks for the enthusiasm here: We tend to add new regions in batches every few months and Azure Sweden launched right after our last batch. We look forward to bringing this new region online in the early spring! You can start in any other Atlas region and move with no downtime to Sweden on Atlas when the region is available.

    Cheers

    Can you please help us understand: what does this have to do with Ubuntu? Are you missing an IP access list entry? Have you reached out to support for help?

    Hi Norberto,

    Atlas allows you to determine the priority order of your regions (drag and drop to your preferred order) so that you can make the first two regions the ones you run your application servers in and continue to have the third region participate in elections.

    Hi Stephen, Out of curiosity are you using the in-mem engine in a self-managed context and actually seeing performance benefits worth aiming for in Atlas? In general we just haven't seen the demand without enough value delta but I want to make sure we hear about your experience. Thanks -Andrew

    Hi Jothibasu, The new Latest/auto-upgrade path is an alternative to the annual LTS path, and in hat path you cannot stick on a specific rapid release like 5.1. So either you want to stay on 5.0 and then 6.0 comes out next year, or go on the Latest/auto-upgrade and go 5.1 to 5.2 to 5.3 etc to 6.0 automatically. -Andrew

    Hi John,

    While it's not a best practice (which is why Atlas discourages) you can in fact combine multiple CIDRs to achieve 0.0.0.0 e.g. by adding two rules: 0.0.0.0/1 and 128.0.0.0/1

    I suggest doing this only if you're certain you've got appropriate key management hygiene in place and ideally only for testing

    Hi Kushal,

    The MongoDB driver should automatically find the nearest (by latency) mongos and use that for its connections. Have you actually run into issues where this wasn't happening, or are you speculatively looking ahead to avoid issues?

    Either way I'd like to get a product manager in touch with you

    Cheers

    Hi Albert,

    Can you add some color here on the use case: why can't you do this today? Anyone can come to Atlas and deploy a cluster when they need to any time. I suspect you have something more specific in mind when you say "burst" ?

    Cheers

    Hi Xavier, One thing to consider would be to manage this level of customization via Vault: we offer a secrets engine integration for MongoDB Atlas https://www.vaultproject.io/docs/secrets/mongodbatlas
