2019 Releases

01 October 2019 Release

10 September 2019 Release

  • Introduces the Query Profiler for M10+ clusters.

  • Newly deployed MongoDB Atlas clusters in the following Azure regions will be spread across availability zones:

    • Central US
    • East US
    • East US 2
    • West US 2
    • France Central
    • North Europe
    • UK South
    • West Europe
    • Japan East
    • Southeast Asia

    Pre-existing clusters, and clusters in all other Azure other regions will continue to be deployed in Availability Sets.

  • Internal Stitch/Charts-created database users and IP whitelist entries no longer show in the Atlas UI.

  • MongoDB Cloud billing authenticates credit cards for customers in the European Economic Area in compliance with the second Payment Services Directive (PSD2). To learn more about Strong Customer Authentication, see Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) Changes.

  • Enables always-on database-level authentication access auditing for dedicated clusters.

20 August 2019 Release

  • Supports the AWS Bahrain region.
  • Changes the preferred region in a multi-region cluster without requiring a rolling resync.
  • Adds key-value pair labels to cluster resources in the Public API.

30 July 2019 Release

  • Supports the Azure United Arab Emirates North region.
  • Introduces M80 general class cluster tier on AWS offering next-gen infrastructure. This replaces the more expensive M100.
  • Removes M100 cluster tier on AWS as an option for new cluster deployments.
  • Disables the ability to create new Personal API Keys. These keys are deprecated. Use Programmatic API Keys to access the Cloud Manager API.

09 July 2019 Release

  • Enables free daily backups for M2 and M5 clusters.
  • Unifies the login experience: accounts for MongoDB Cloud, Support, and JIRA use the same credentials.
  • Adds new project-level role Project Cluster Manager. This role allows operators to scale clusters but not allow those operators to:
    • Terminate clusters,
    • Change the security configuration changes, or
    • Access data.
  • Allows deploy single-shard sharded clusters in Atlas.

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. An Atlas project supports multiple backup types among clusters within that project. You must terminate the existing backup method before switching between backup methods for an Atlas cluster.
  • Enhanced left-hand navigation.

16 April 2019 Release

26 March 2019 Release

  • Atlas clusters can re-use public IP addresses when replaced in the same region.
  • Can configure backup schedule and retention for Snapshots Backup.
  • AWS EC2 Capacity for all cluster tiers in all regions and availability zones is visible via the Atlas Admin UI.

05 March 2019 Release

  • UX improvements to the cluster Connect modal.
  • Most server replacements get initial data from a disk snapshot of the primary instead of an initial sync.
  • Support for new shared tier regions:

      • eu-central-1 (M2/M5)
      • eu-west-1 (M0)
      • us-west-2 (M0)
    • Azure
      • northeurope (M0)
      • westus (M0/M2/M5)
  • Cloud Provider Snapshots for Geo-sharded clusters.

13 February 2019 Release

  • Supports Google Cloud Peering.
  • Introduces Analytics Nodes. These are similar to read-only nodes but this special node type makes use of replica set tags to let you target workloads to specific secondaries.
  • Support for AWS Stockholm region. With this region comes a new largest cluster, M700.
  • Atlas on Azure 2.0.
    • M10, M80, and M200 clusters are now supported in all regions. The M90 tier is going to be removed shortly.
