Before installing and configuring the Management Pack, ensure your system meets the following requirements:

vRealize Operations Requirements MongoDB Requirements

vRealize Operations 7.x or 8.x

 (Enterprise edition only)

MongoDB 3.x; 4.x


The Management Pack collects data from the MongoDB database via the Mongo Client.

Your MongoDB hostname or IPv4 address is required. A comma-separated list of multiple hosts (mongos/mongod instances) in an environment is supported.

Note: If using a port other than the default of 27017, you can append the non-standard port number to the hostname (see: Creating an Adapter Instance (MongoDB) for details).

MongoDB User Name/Password for the admin database

Note: The same User Name/Password must exist for all mongos/mongods in your environment.
Note: Your MongoDB configuration may not require authentication. When Creating a Credential (MongoDB) for the Management Pack, there is an “Authentication Not Required” option to accommodate this scenario. For those configurations that do require authentication, the Management Pack for MongoDB requires a least-privileged MongoDB user account of read-only.
