MongoDb service Lookup Keys not authenticating


#1

Okay, figured after a couple hours hammering my keyboard and abusing Google time to reach out for a lifeline.

Connecting to external MongoDb (Amazon VPC)

Setting up the service and roles.

In my service, I can create a role and connect no problem with:

mongodb://mymongousername:mymongopassword@52.21.228.198:27017/mymongodb

But when I try to enter Lookup Keys in the role to replace the mymongousername:mymongopassword I can no longer connect.

I set up my service like this:

mongodb://{m_username}:{m_password}@52.21.228.198:27017/mymongodb

and in my user role I set up

KEY: m_username VALUE: mymongousername PRVATE
KEY: m_password VALUE: mymongopassword PRIVATE

I get a response:

Unexpected MongoDb Service Exception:
Failed to connect to: 52.21.228.198:27017: SASL Authentication failed on database 'mymongodb': Authentication failed.

I tried variants of username/password curly brackets etc but no luck. I revert back to original service setup with mongodb://mymongousername:mymongopassword@52.21.228.198:27017/mymongodb and connect again no problem.

Any help?
