Configure Available MongoDB Versions

You can manage the versions that are available to your Automation Agents to download. MongoDB versions are downloaded by the Automation Agents “lazily”: Automation Agents do not download available versions unless a MongoDB process uses that version on a managed host.

Version Manager

The Version Manager lists the available MongoDB versions.

To access the Version Manager:

  1. Click Deployment.
  2. Click Version Manager from the More drop-down list.

Select Existing Versions


Click Deployment, then the More drop-down list, then Version Manager.


Select the checkboxes for the versions of MongoDB the Automation Agent will use.


Click Review & Deploy to review your changes.


Review and approve your changes.

Ops Manager displays your proposed changes.

  1. If you are satisfied, click Confirm & Deploy.
  2. Otherwise, click Cancel and you can make additional changes.

Create a Custom Build

The existing versions of MongoDB may not meet your immediate needs. You can provide other versions of MongoDB through the Custom Builds functionality.


Click Deployment, then the More drop-down list, then Version Manager.


Click Add to the right of Custom Builds.
