MongoDB Integration

This documentation provides step-by-step instructions on how to integrate MongoDB as an audit logger within the DronaHQ platform.

Introduction

MongoDB integration allows you to capture and manage logs efficiently in your DronaHQ modules. Follow the steps below to set up MongoDB as your audit logger.

Prerequisites

Before you begin, ensure that you have the following prerequisites in place:

  • A DronaHQ account with an Enterprise Plan.
  • Access to a MongoDB database.
  • MongoDB connection details.

Configuration Steps

To get started with MongoDB integration, follow these steps:

  1. Open your MongoDB account and create a new Database and Collection. You can also use an existing Database and Collection.

  2. Go to your Cluster and click on "Connect", then choose the connection method and copy the connection string.

PLEASE NOTE

The connection string may not contain the database in the connection string. Make sure the database is added in the connection string.

Example connection string: mongodb://username:password@host:port/database

To configure MongoDB as your audit logger, follow these steps:

  1. Under the Audit Logger section, click on Setup External Logging.

  2. In the "Select Logger Configuration" dropdown, choose "MongoDB."
