MongoDB Atlas Release Notes

2019 Releases

18 June 2019 Release

29 May 2019 Release

  • Support for GCP Osaka region.
  • Support to search for organization or project names that are one character long.

07 May 2019 Release

  • Cloud Provider Snapshots are now available for GCP-backed clusters.
  • Atlas clusters can now use Google Cloud KMS for encryption at rest.
  • Atlas clusters now have a new MongoDB configuration option that allows agents to continue connecting even if you have exceeded the maximum number of connections. For example, this means that Atlas continues to gather monitoring data after reaching the maximum number of connections. This change affects all new Atlas clusters. Existing Atlas clusters are affected the next time you request a configuration change to a cluster.
  • Atlas projects may now use either the Continuous Backup or the Cloud Provider Snapshots backup method. You must delete all existing snapshots before switching between backup methods for an Atlas project.
  • Enhanced left-hand navigation.
