First of all, you need to require this library through composer:

composer require facile-it/mongodb-bundle

Then, enable the bundle on the AppKernel class:

// app/AppKernel.php

public function registerBundles()
    $bundles = array(
        // ...
        new Facile\MongoDbBundle\FacileMongoDbBundle(),

    // ...

    return $bundles


Here is the configuration reference:

    data_collection: true # set to false to disable data collection
    # clients section, here you can define connection to different servers or with different credentials
      foo_client_name:    #choose your client name
        hosts:            # Required - will compose your mongo connection url (mongodb://host1:3062,host2:27017)
            - { host: host1, port: 3062 } # this 
            - { host: host2 }
        username:         ''
        password:         ''
        authSource:       '' # the database name associated with the user’s credentials, defaults to connection
                                database_name if not specified
        replicaSet:       '' # default null (no replica) (experimental)
        ssl:              false
        connectTimeoutMS: 3000 # default null (no timeout)
        readPreference:   primaryPreferred # see https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/reference/read-preference/#primary for info
      other_client:   ~ # same as upper configuration
    # connections section, theese represents your Database object reference
        client_name:    foo_client_name # Required - your client name in clients section
        database_name:  'foo_db' # Required
        client_name:    ~
        database_name:  ~
        client_name:    ~
        database_name:  ~


You can directly access to the MongoDB\Database with those services:

$this->get('mongo.connection'); // Default connection (first declared)
$this->get('mongo.connection.{connectionName}'); // [test_db, other_db, test_db_2] for example

To manipulate the database, please read the official documentation


This bundle supports doctrine style fixtures. To create one you will need to add a php class in your bundle's /DataFixtures/Mongo directory. For Example src/AppBundle/DataFixtures/Mongo/LoadTaskDataFixture.php.

Note: This class must implement at least the MongoFixtureInterface, if you need container support you can extend AbstractContainerAwareFixture to use the getContainer method.


Since 0.6.6 it's possibile to specify the order by which the fixtures are loaded. Make sure it implements OrderedFixtureInterface. Fixtures with lower values of getOrder will be loaded first.


Some commands are provided:

  • mongodb:database:drop: To drop a database.
  • mongodb:collection:drop: To drop a collection.
  • mongodb:fixtures:load: To load the fixtures.

Query Profiling

On dev environment all queries executed by the library MongoDB\Collection class are profiled and showed inside the symfony web profiler.

Feel free to contribute by opening a pull request, if you find a bug or to suggest a new feature. If you like docker, this repository is provided with a dev environment with some scripts to prepare and use it. All you need is docker and docker-compose installed on your system.

 make setup  # will build the needed containers and setup the project
 make start  # will start the needed containers and put you inside the php-cli container
 make test  # will launch the test suite

Note: All these scripts are meant to be used outside the containers.

Port binding setup

During the setup a docker-compose.override.yml file is created from the docker-compose.override.yml.dist template. Change the port binding configuration inside it to fit you needs.
