Projects

Overview

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 Automation Agents associated with the project. Projects within the same organization share the same billing settings.

Working with Multiple Environments

For a project, the Monitoring Agent 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.

  • To create a project for an organization, you must be either an Organization Owner or an Organization Project Creator.
