Issues & Help

We are lucky to have a vibrant MongoDB Java community with lots of varying experience of using the Java driver. We often find the quickest way to get support for general questions is through the mongodb-user google group or through stackoverflow. Please also refer to our own support channels documentation.

Bugs / Feature Requests

If you think you’ve found a bug or want to see a new feature in the Java driver, please open a case in our issue management tool, JIRA:

Bug reports in JIRA for the Java driver and the Core Server (i.e. SERVER) project are public.

If you’ve identified a security vulnerability in a driver or any other MongoDB project, please report it according to the instructions here.

Pull Requests

We are happy to accept contributions to help improve the driver. We will guide user contributions to ensure they meet the standards of the codebase. Please ensure that any pull requests include documentation, tests and also pass a the gradle checks.
