Once the secured authentication is enabled on the MongoDB server, update the mongo.conf.json file to authenticate through Scram-Sha-1 method.:

  1. Edit the following file:

    As antidot user

    /usr/local/afs7/Fluid-Topics/conf/-/mongo.conf.json

  2. Add the following lines to the file:

    As antidot user

    {
    "hosts": [
    ...
    ],
    "authentication": {
    "scramSha1": {
    "username": "$USER_NAME",
    "password": "$PASSWORD",
    "database": "admin"
    }
    }
    }

    Where database is the authentication database associated to the user. Its value is usually admin.

For more information about the user authentication database, consult the MongoDB official documentation.

If $PASSWORD contains special characters, then it must be encoded in accordance with the following nomenclature: https://www.w3schools.com/tags/ref_urlencode.asp
Example: myUserAdmin2:abc#!!!!@123 should be myUserAdmin2:abc%23%21%21%21%21%40123
