You can use Automation to install and upgrade MongoDB instances in your deployment. You need to give Ops Manager a list of which versions can be installed. The complete list of all possible MongoDB editions and versions is called the version manifest.

If you set the Ops Manager gets installers from: option to Direct connection to MongoDB, Ops Manager updates the version manifest automatically.

If you set the Ops Manager gets installers from: option to Ops Manager Application Server Hard Drive, you need to update the version manifest manually.
