Once the secured authentication is enabled on the MongoDB server, update the conf.xml file:

  1. Edit the following file:

    As root user

    /usr/local/afs7/conf/conf.xml

  2. It must look as follows:

    <?xml version='1.0' encoding='iso-8859-1'?>
    <afs:conf xmlns:afs="http://ref.antidot.net/v7/afs#">
    <afs:PaF>
    <afs:PaFManager>
    <afs:maxQueueSize value="0"/>
    <afs:Mongo>
    <afs:connectionString value="mongodb://$USER_NAME:$PASSWORD@localhost:27017"/>
    </afs:Mongo>
    </afs:PaFManager>
    </afs:PaF>
    <afs:ContentRepository>
    ...
    <afs:Nerada>
    ...
    <afs:Mongo>
    <afs:connectionString value="mongodb://$USER_NAME:$PASSWORD@localhost:27017"/>
    </afs:Mongo>
    </afs:Nerada>
    </afs:ContentRepository>
    <afs:LogManager>
    ...
    </afs:LogManager>
    </afs:conf>

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
