  • Procedures

For Cloud Manager to monitor, deploy, or back up a MongoDB deployment that uses TLS, you must enable TLS for the Cloud Manager project.

A full description of Transport Layer Security, public key infrastructure, X.509 certificates, and Certificate Authorities exceeds the scope of this tutorial. This tutorial assumes prior knowledge of TLS and access to valid X.509 certificates.


If you want to reset Authentication and TLS settings for your project, first unmanage any MongoDB deployments that Cloud Manager manages in your project.

Acquire a TLS certificate for each host serving a MongoDB process. This certificate must include the FQDN for the hostname of this MongoDB host. The FQDN must be the Subject Alternative Name of this host. You must install this TLS certificate on the MongoDB host.
