mongoc_client_set_ssl_opts(3) None


mongoc_client_set_ssl_opts (mongoc_client_t *client,
const mongoc_ssl_opt_t *opts);

Sets the SSL options to use when connecting to SSL enabled MongoDB servers.

Beginning in version 1.2.0, once a client has any SSL options set, all connections use SSL, even if "ssl=true" is omitted from the MongoDB URI. Before, SSL options were ignored unless "ssl=true" was included in the URI.

Although the mongoc_ssl_opt_t struct itself is shallow-copied by the client, the strings it points to ( pem_file , pem_pwd , ca_file , ca_dir , and crl_file ) are not copied and must remain valid for the life of the mongoc_client_t \&.

It is a programming error to call this function on a client from a mongoc_client_pool_t \&. Instead, call mongoc_client_pool_set_ssl_opts on the pool before popping any clients.


A mongoc_client_t \&.

A mongoc_ssl_opt_t \&. The struct is copied by the client, but the strings it points to are not.


This feature requires that the MongoDB C driver was compiled with --enable-ssl \&.
