MongoDB Rust Driver
On this page
Welcome to the documentation site for the official MongoDB Rust driver. You can add the driver to your application to work with MongoDB in Rust. Download it from crates.io or set up a runnable project with examples from our Usage Guide.
Connect to MongoDB Atlas
You can use the connection snippets in the following tabs to test your connection to your MongoDB deployment on Atlas. Select from the Sync or Async tabs below for corresponding connection code samples.
This connection snippet uses the Stable API feature, which you can enable when using the Rust driver v2.0 and later to connect to MongoDB Server v5.0 and later. When you use this feature, you can update your driver or server without worrying about backward compatibility issues with any commands covered by the Stable API.
To learn more about the Stable API feature, see Stable API in the Server manual.
Starting from Feburary 2022, the Versioned API is known as the Stable API. All concepts and features remain the same with this naming change.
Connect to MongoDB Atlas Without the Stable API
If you are using a version of MongoDB or the driver that doesn't support the Stable API feature, you can use the connection snippets in the following tabs to test your connection to your MongoDB deployment on Atlas. Select from the Sync or Async tabs below for corresponding connection code samples.
Connect to a MongoDB Server on Your Local Machine
If you need to run a MongoDB server on your local machine for development purposes instead of using an Atlas cluster, you need to complete the following:
Download the Community or Enterprise version of MongoDB Server.
Install and configure MongoDB Server.
Start the server.
Always secure your MongoDB server from malicious attacks. See our Security Checklist for a list of security recommendations.
After you successfully start your MongoDB server, specify your connection string in your driver connection code.
If your MongoDB Server is running locally, you can use the connection string
<port> is the port number you
configured your server to listen for incoming connections.
If you need to specify a different hostname or IP address, see our Server Manual entry on Connection Strings.
To test whether you can connect to your server, replace the connection string in the Connect to MongoDB Atlas code example and run it.
Compatibility Table Legend
All features are supported.
The Driver version will work with the MongoDB version, but not all new MongoDB features are supported.
The Driver version is not tested with the MongoDB version.
The Rust driver is not compatible with MongoDB server versions older than 3.6.
|||(1, 2, 3) The Rust driver does not support Decimal128, Client-Side Field Level Encryption, GridFS, and OCSP.|
|||The Rust driver does not support Decimal128, Client-Side Field Level Encryption, GridFS, OCSP, and change streams.|
|||Not all features in MongoDB are available in these driver versions. Unsupported features include Decimal128, Client-Side Field Level Encryption, GridFS, OCSP, change streams, Causal Consistency, and Serverless Instances.|
The MongoDB Rust driver requires Rust 1.51 or later.
