Issues & Help

We are lucky to have a vibrant MongoDB Node.js community with lots of varying experience of using the Node.js 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 Node.js driver, please open a case in our issue management tool, JIRA:

Bug reports in JIRA for the Node.js 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.

To get started check out the source and work on a branch:

$ git clone https://github.com/mongodb/node-mongodb-native.git
$ cd node-mongodb-native
$ npm install
$ git checkout -b myNewFeature

Ensure you code passes the test suite. Before running the test suite make sure you have the mongod executable on your current path.

Run the functional test suite.
