Returns a document that contains the current replica set configuration.


mongosh Method

This page documents a mongosh method. This is not the documentation for database commands or language-specific drivers, such as Node.js.

For the database command, see the replSetGetConfig command.

For MongoDB API drivers, refer to the language-specific MongoDB driver documentation.

For the legacy mongo shell documentation, refer to the documentation for the corresponding MongoDB Server release:

mongo shell v4.4

The replSetGetConfig command can specify a new option commitmentStatus: true when run on the primary. When run with the option, the command includes in the output a commitmentStatus field. This output field indicates whether the replica set's previous reconfig has been committed, so that the replica set is ready to be reconfigured again. The option is only available with the replSetGetConfig command.

The following document provides a representation of a replica set configuration document. The configuration of your replica set may include only a subset of these settings:

_id: <string>,
version: <int>,
term: <int>,
protocolVersion: <number>,
writeConcernMajorityJournalDefault: <boolean>,
configsvr: <boolean>,
members: [
_id: <int>,
host: <string>,
arbiterOnly: <boolean>,
buildIndexes: <boolean>,
hidden: <boolean>,
priority: <number>,
tags: <document>,
secondaryDelaySecs: <int>,
votes: <number>
settings: {
chainingAllowed : <boolean>,
heartbeatIntervalMillis : <int>,
heartbeatTimeoutSecs: <int>,
electionTimeoutMillis : <int>,
catchUpTimeoutMillis : <int>,
getLastErrorModes : <document>,
getLastErrorDefaults : <document>,
replicaSetId: <ObjectId>

For description of the configuration settings, see Replica Set Configuration.
