Remove Project from Automation

When the Cloud Manager Free Trial period expires, Cloud Manager Automation is disabled for your Cloud Manager Projects. As Automation no longer manages your MongoDB processes, you need to remove your MongoDB processes from Automation and configure them to use Monitoring and Backup without Automation.


If you choose to stop using Cloud Manager Automation for a project, Cloud Manager will continue to monitor the project’s deployments but will track metrics at a less granular level and store metrics for a shorter period.

To instead unmanage individual deployments and still use Automation for the project, see Stop Managing and/or Monitoring One Deployment.

To stop using Automation with your Projects, you should:


Verify the Automation version.

Verify the package version for your Automation is 2.7.1 or later.


This version is not shown in Cloud Manager. You must check the version of the MongoDB Agent package on the host.

OS Method
RPM Linux distributions
yum list mongodb-mms-automation-agent-manager.x86_64
Ubuntu Linux
apt-cache show mongodb-mms-automation-agent-manager | grep Version
Other Linux distributions or Mac OS X

By default, when the archive file is downloaded and extracted, the name of the directory where the Automation is installed includes the version number.

Microsoft Windows
  1. Click the Start button.
  2. Click Administrative Tools.

  4. Right-click on the MongoDB MMS Automation Agent and select Properties.
  5. Click Details.

Create initialization scripts for MongoDB processes.

Use the Make init scripts tool to create initialization scripts for your MongoDB processes.


Unmanage all of the MongoDB processes.

  1. Click the ellipsis [] menu at the upper right corner of the Deployment page.
  2. Select Unmanage All.

Stop the Automations on each server running MongoDB.

If you were backing up your deployments using Automation, you need to install the Backup.
