setParameter is an administrative command for modifying options normally set on the command line. You must issue the setParameter command against the admin database in the form:

db.adminCommand( { setParameter: 1, <parameter>: <value> } )

For the available parameters, including examples, see MongoDB Server Parameters.

Commands issued by the admin command setParameter do not survive server restarts. For a persistent option use the --setParameter command line option or the setParameter configuration file setting.

When using Stable API V1 with apiStrict set to true, you cannot use setParameter to modify server parameters.
