5.0 quality score

We run a couple of automated
scans to help you access a
module's quality. Each module is
given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

Please note, the information below
is for guidance only and neither of
these methods should be considered
an endorsement by Puppet.

thias/mongodb — version 1.0.8 Nov 20th 2019



Install, enable and configure the MongoDB scalable, high-performance NoSQL database. This module is quite Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) or clones (CentOS) specific, but should be easy to make more generic. It's meant to be simple, to manage only the service's configuration (not the MongoDB resources themselves) and to not have any external module dependencies.

The default generated configuration file is meant to be as close a possible to the one included in the Fedora/EPEL packages.

  • mongodb : Manage the MongoDB NoSQL server
  • mongodb::key : Manage auth key file to be used for MongoDB replicas


mongodb::key { '/etc/mongodb.key':
  content => 'c9otjehasAvlactocPiphAgC9',

For MongoDB 2.x :

class { '::mongodb':
  bind_ip => '',
  auth    => 'true',
  rest    => 'true',
  replset => 'rs0',
  keyfile => '/etc/mongodb.key',

For MongoDB 3.x :

class { '::mongodb':
  storage_engine          => 'wiredTiger',
  net_bindip              => '',
  security_keyfile        => '/etc/mongodb.key',
  replication_replsetname => 'rs0',
