Help with SSL connection on Amazon DocumentDB

2 years ago
1 2

Hey folks! First, congratulations. Payload CMS looks amazing.
We, here in Chefsclub, are excited to use Payload in some of our usecases.
A little (and perhaps silly) question comes up to my mind:
We are trying to connect payload on a DocumentDB cluster that requires a SSL .pem certificate. Since we can just pass on the init the URI, we are not getting any success to connect without (1 have to disable ssl :( or 2 use it on the same VPC).
Is there any plans to make the parameter passed on the Payload init to include the mongoose options, or at least the CA SSL certificate?

Thank you so much.

    This feature is up now in the published v0.2.10! You can update your package.json Payload dependency to "^0.2.10" get this change.

    Hey @prove-ability — Payload version 0.2.10 is now quite out of date. This discussion was from Feb 2021. We're now at 0.17.3. You should use the latest version of Payload instead.

    Hi @upcase-chefs — great question and great request. We would be happy to support the passing of Mongoose options.

    Give us a bit here and we will make it happen! You can expect this functionality to be released in 1 to 2 days from now.

    We will report back to this discussion when we have it added!

    Hey Folks,

    My suggested steps:

    1. on the index.js add the follow parameter besides the url: mongoAdditionalOptions

    On the connect.js, receive the mongoAdditionalOptions object and append it to the connectionOptions...

    var finalOptions = {...connectionOptions, ...mongoAdditionalOptions}
    Also, on the index.js it's needed read Amazon's .pem file and pass the buffer (or the string. I'm not quite sure) to the mongoose parameters.

    I hope this helps.

    We are Eager to buy the Payload licenses. But we still need to fix this one and another bug on Relationship that I just opened there. This is blocking our workload to be implemented.

    Chefsclub team.

    This is similar to what I came up with.

    I named it mongoOptions instead of mongoAdditionalOptions, but the functionality is the same as you described.

    Here is the PR:
