Installing MongoDB support


MongoDB support isn’t enabled by default, so it must be separately installed through an extension.

Installing support for this is the same as most Boundless Server Extensions.

Installation instructions are dependent on your operating system and method of install:


The Boundless Server virtual machine has most extensions pre-installed.

Verifying installation

To verify that the extension has been installed properly:

  1. Log in to the GeoServer web interface.

  2. Click Stores then Add new store.

  3. In the list of Vector Data Stores, you should see an entry for MongoDB.

    If you don’t see this entry, the extension did not install correctly.
