Add a Custom MongoDB Build

On this page

You can add custom build versions of MongoDB for your Automations to download. Automations download these MongoDB versions “lazily”; Automations do not download binaries for a version of MongoDB until a MongoDB process uses that version on a managed host.

Add 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 Custom Builds.


Click Add Custom Build.


Complete the Add Custom Build form.

Parameter Description

The platform on which this build can be installed.

Accepted values are:

  • Linux (amd64) (64-bit Intel architecture Linux)
  • Linux (ppc64le) (64-bit PowerPC architecture Linux)
  • Mac OS X (amd64) (64-bit Intel architecture macOS)
Version Name

Your label for this build. It must begin with a valid MongoDB version number.


Download URL

The URL from which the Automation can download this build. This URL does not need to be Internet accessible.


The Ops Manager Application does not check if this URL exists, only that it is a complete URL.

Git Version

The complete 40-character git SHA-1 checksum (or hash) for this build.



If your custom build included any add-on modules, enter them into this combo box.

Accepted values are:

  • None
  • subscription
  • enterprise

Click Add Custom Build.


The new custom build appears on the Custom Builds page.


After you create a custom build, you cannot edit it. You can click the Remove link to delete it.
