Continuous Integration with MongoDB
MongoDB is pre-installed on all Shippable Official images. However, we do not start it by default since not every build needs MongoDB.
To start MongoDB, include the following in your shippable.yml:
services: - mongodb
When started, MongoDB binds to 127.0.0.1 by default. You do need to create a database or authenticate up front.
Create users for your database with the sample yml snippet below:
build: ci: - mongo mytestdb --eval 'db.addUser("shippable", "test");'
Custom startup command
To customize the entire startup command, you should define the SHIPPABLE_MONGODB_CMD environment variable in your yml.
For example, the following yml snippet overrides the default startup command:
services: - mongodb env: global: - SHIPPABLE_MONGODB_CMD="<command>"
If you want to start mongodb with custom configuration, you can do this by not specifying
mongodb in the
services secrion, and starting it up in your
ci section instead.
build: ci: - mongod --config ./config.yml
config.yml in the above example should contain the custom configuration.
