Projects

new

Groups are now projects.

In Ops Manager, MongoDB deployments are associated with projects.

You can create multiple projects in an organization. Each project has its own Monitoring, Backup and Automations associated with the project. Projects within the same organization share the same billing settings.

Working with Multiple Environments

For a project, the Monitoring must be able to connect to all hosts it monitors. If you have multiple MongoDB deployments in distinct environments and cannot monitor all deployments with a single agent (for instance, if your environments are separated by firewalls), you will need to add new projects.

You can also use multiple projects and agents if you want to separately monitor different MongoDB deployments that run in the same environment.

Create a Project

Important

  • To create a project for an organization, you must be either an Organization Owner or an Organization Project Creator.
  • When you create a project, you are added as an Project Owner of the project.
  • When you create a project, Ops Manager automatically assigns a set of default alert configurations to the project.

Procedure

1

Add new project to an organization.

In the Context, either:

  1. Select the organization for which you wish to create a project and then select + New Project, or
  2. Select + New Project to create a project for the current organization.
2

Provide a name and default server type for your Project.

Name Enter the name for this project.
Default Project Server Type

Select the default server type to be applied to all hosts added to this project. This default type overrides the default type set for the parent organization.

Server Intention Environment Purpose License Requirement
Production Server

Hosts your application to your internal or external end users.

Important

If an end user might use an environment, it functions as a Production environment. This applies whether the environment also provides testing, quality assurance, evaluation, or development capabilities.

One license per server
Test/QA Server

This type of environment can be used to:

Test Exercises your application to verify that it works as designed and expected. The platform configuration might be a less performant version of Production in compute, network, and storage capability.
Assure system quality Validates your application against a combination of data, hardware, and software configured to simulate Production. The platform configuration should be a smaller scale of Production in compute, network, and storage capability.
Stage Simulates the Production environment including performance testing and release candidate approval. The platform configuration should mirror Production in compute, network, and storage capability.
One license per server
Development Server Hosts in progress design, code, debugging or some combination thereof for your application. Used to evaluate if the current state of your application can be promoted to another environment. None
RAM Pool Provides any combination of servers for any environment purpose. One license for any number of servers up to the maximum of the total GB of RAM you purchased across these servers.

Note

  • You can modify this setting in Edit Project Settings
  • You can change the server type for individual hosts.
