Add a Custom MongoDB Build

You can add custom-built versions of MongoDB for Cloud Manager to download. Automation downloads these MongoDB versions “lazily”: downloading binaries for a version of MongoDB when a MongoDB process uses that version on a managed host.

Add a Custom Build

The existing versions of MongoDB may not meet your immediate needs. You can provide other versions of MongoDB through the Custom Builds functionality.

1

Click Deployment, then the More drop-down list, then Custom Builds.

Click Add Custom Build.

Complete the Add Custom Build form.

Your label for this build. It must begin with a valid MongoDB version number.
