MongoDB Adapter for ProophEventStore

#CAUTION: The mongoDB adapter is NOT compatible With prooph/event-store v7. MongoDB has limited ACID support which is not compatible with the new features of prooph/event-store. MongoDB is a great choice for a read model database, but unfortunately it cannot be used as an event-store that requires transactions across documents (events). Codeliner has published a Gist that shows a custom implementation of a possible mongoDB event store supporting a subset of the v7 features in a very limited way. If you want to try to bring mongoDB back, please get in touch with us and we can discuss it!

Support for the adapter will end at 31 December 2017.


  • MongoDB >= 2.6.0
  • PHP Mongo Extension >= 1.5.0
  • alcaeus/mongo-php-adapter >= 1.0.5 for usage with PHP 7

Write concern

This adapter uses a transaction timeout of 50 secs by default.

The default write concern for this adapater is acknowledged (['w' => 1]).

It's possible to change both values by injecting them into the constructor or by using the factory.


This adapter does not use the MongoDB ObjectId for its primary key, instead a UUID (string) is used.

We recommend the AggregateStreamStrategy as the best strategy to use with this adapter.

This adapter uses the $isolated operator to achieve transaction safety for a single collection. Keep in mind, that $isolated does not work with sharded clusters. Therefore it's not safe to use this adapter in a sharded cluster environment, as MongoDB can't guarantee transaction safety.
