Bug Description

I am requesting we bump mongodb to the latest 3.6 version.

The default version of openssl in bionic is 1.1. Mongo3.4 doesn't support this version, while mongo3.6 does.

Mongo upstream support generally averages 3 to 3.5 years, see https://www.mongodb.com/support-policy. At the moment, mongo hasn't decided on the support lifetime for mongo3.6. However, there's reason to believe it will be both supported for longer than mongo3.4, and perhaps longer than previous releases. This will allow more upstream overlap for the life of the LTS.

Finally, juju itself will benefit from the newer version of mongo3.6, and can take advantage of features exposed at a later date.


The proposed package has already been built thanks to Robie Basak, and can be seen in his ppa: ppa:racb/experimental. Robie has also graciously volunteered to upload this package to fufill this FFe.

The juju team has done initial validation to ensure this meets our needs. This included running our test suite utilizing the packaged mongodb from Robie's ppa.

This gets us onto recent openssl and boost; mongodb has only two reverse-depends in the archive, one is python-loofah and the other is juju-related. The change has been in process for a while and just hasn't landed yet but should be uneventful when it does. +1 for this FFe.

Steve, please could you also extend the FFe approval to cover mongo-tools? I think it makes sense to keep the version of mongo-tools in line with the mongodb package.

no other reverse-dependencies outside of mongodb-clients, should be kept in sync with mongodb; FFe approved for mongo-tools.

As an update to note, the juju team has done further manual testing on the build in ppa:racb/experimental to ensure it meets our needs. This included running real workloads and performing controller operations like migration and HA. We're happy with the package.
