[IMPLEMENTED] DocumentDB Support


Can we get DocumentDB support for the backend? It seems that connecting to DocumentDB currently errors out since the MongoDB driver will not accept the DocumentDB TLS certificates. AWS provides these CA certs: https://docs.aws.amazon.com/documentdb/latest/developerguide/security.encryption.ssl.html.


Have you tested this: ?

Not sure if there is much I can do, it seems that you just have to import the certificate into your cert store.


I haven’t. I’m not sure exactly how I would manage this with the Kubernetes deployment of Squidex.


Might be worth to have a look at: https://kubernetes.io/docs/tasks/tls/managing-tls-in-a-cluster/


I was able to get past that issue by adding a postStart lifecycle hook:
command: ["/bin/sh", “-c”, " wget https://s3.amazonaws.com/rds-downloads/rds-combined-ca-bundle.pem; cp rds-combined-ca-bundle.pem /usr/local/share/ca-certificates/; update-ca-certificates"]

I’m now however running into this issue:
“message”: “Command createIndexes failed: namespace name generated from index name is too long.”
Any idea?


The driver auto generates the names for indices based on the properties. Seems that DocumentDB does not like some of these names. So I guess I have to make a few adjustments to get it working with DocumentDB.
