To provide optional settings, edit the YAML file that corresponds to your deployment type in the directory where you cloned the Kubernetes Operator repository:

  • Vanilla Kubernetes using kubectl: mongodb-enterprise.yaml

  • OpenShift using oc: mongodb-enterprise-openshift.yaml

If the setting that you want to add doesn't exist in the YAML file, add it as a new array of key-value pair mappings in the spec.template.spec.containers.name.env. collection:

  • Set the value of the spec.template.spec.containers.name.env.name key to the setting's name.

  • Set the value of the spec.template.spec.containers.name.env.value key to the setting's value.

To fill in values for container images, see Container Images.

11 value: quay.io/mongodb/mongodb-agent-ubi

In Kubernetes Operator 1.20, the container registry changed for the application database image and the images use a new tag suffix. When you upgrade the Kubernetes Operator, the Kubernetes Operator automatically updates the earlier suffix, -ent, for all images that reference the new container registry to -ubi8 or the suffix set in MDB_IMAGE_TYPE or mongodb.imageType.

For example, the Kubernetes Operator changes quay.io/mongodb/mongodb-enterprise-server:4.4.5-ent to quay.io/mongodb/mongodb-enterprise-server:4.4.5-ubi8.

To stop the Kubernetes Operator from automatically updating the suffix, set MDB_APPDB_ASSUME_OLD_FORMAT or mongodb.appdbAssumeOldFormat to true. For example, you might want to stop the automatic suffix change if you're mirroring this image from your own repository.

The default value is false, which automatically updates the image suffix.

Flag that determines whether or not the Kubernetes Operator enables automatic recovery for MongoDB resources per Pod.

The default value is true.

9 env:
10 - name: MDB_AUTOMATIC_RECOVERY_ENABLE
11 value: false

Number of seconds that a custom resource can remain in a Pending or Failed state before the Kubernetes Operator automatically recovers your MongoDB resources.

The default value is 1200 seconds (20 minutes).

To disable automatic recovery, set the MDB_AUTOMATIC_RECOVERY_ENABLE environment variable to false.

2 template:
3 spec:
4 serviceAccountName: mongodb-enterprise-operator

10 - name: MDB_AUTOMATIC_RECOVERY_BACKOFF_TIME_S
11 value: 3600

Determines the container architecture used by all your deployments:

To enable static containers for a single deployment, use metadata.annotations.mongodb.com/v1.architecture in the MongoDB resource instead.

The default is non-static.

To enable static containers, set to static.

1spec:
2 template:
3 spec:
4 serviceAccountName: mongodb-enterprise-operator
5 containers:
6 - name: mongodb-enterprise-operator
7 image: <operatorVersionUrl>
8 imagePullPolicy: <policyChoice>
9 env:
10 - name: MDB_DEFAULT_ARCHITECTURE
11 value: static

The suffix of the application database image.

In Kubernetes Operator 1.20, the container registry changed for the application database image and the images use a new tag suffix. When you upgrade the Kubernetes Operator, the Kubernetes Operator automatically updates the earlier suffix, -ent, for all images that reference the new container registry to -ubi8 or the suffix set in MDB_IMAGE_TYPE or mongodb.imageType.

For example, the Kubernetes Operator changes quay.io/mongodb/mongodb-enterprise-server:4.4.5-ent to quay.io/mongodb/mongodb-enterprise-server:4.4.5-ubi8.

To stop the Kubernetes Operator from automatically updating the suffix, set MDB_APPDB_ASSUME_OLD_FORMAT or mongodb.appdbAssumeOldFormat to true. For example, you might want to stop the automatic suffix change if you're mirroring this image from your own repository.

The default is -ubi8.

5 containers:
6 - name: mongodb-enterprise-operator
7 image: <operatorVersionUrl>
8 imagePullPolicy: <policyChoice>
9 env:
10 - name: READINESS_PROBE_LOGGER_MAX_SIZE
11 value: 125

The maximum number of days to retain rotated readiness.log files, starting with the date in the file timestamp. If set to 0, the Kubernetes Operator doesn't remove readiness.log files on the basis of age, instead relying on READINESS_PROBE_LOGGER_BACKUPS to determine retention.

The default value is 0.

1spec:
2 template:
3 spec:
4 serviceAccountName: mongodb-enterprise-operator
5 containers:
6 - name: mongodb-enterprise-operator
7 image: <operatorVersionUrl>

9 env:
10 - name: READINESS_PROBE_LOGGER_MAX_AGE
11 value: 3

Namespaces that the Kubernetes Operator watches for MongoDB resource changes. If this namespace differs from the default, ensure that the Kubernetes Operator ServiceAccount can access this namespace.

  • To watch all namespaces, specify * and assign the ClusterRole to the mongodb-enterprise-operator ServiceAccount that you use to run the Kubernetes Operator.

  • To watch a subset of all namespaces, specify them in a comma-separated list, escape each comma with a backslash, and surround the list in quotes, such as "operator.watchNamespace=ns1\,ns2".

Watching a subset of namespaces is useful in deployments where a single Kubernetes Operator instance watches a different cluster resource type. For example, you can configure the Kubernetes Operator to watch MongoDB resources in one subset of namespaces, and to watch MongoDBMultiCluster resources in another subset of namespaces. To avoid race conditions during resource reconciliation, for each custom resource type that you want the Kubernetes Operator to watch, ensure that you set scope to a distinct subset of namespaces.

Important

To deploy Ops Manager and MongoDB resources to one or more namespaces other than the one where you deploy the Kubernetes Operator, see Set Scope for MongoDB Enterprise Kubernetes Operator Deployment for values you must use and additional steps you might have to perform.

The default value is <metadata.namespace>.
