I have a question for the community –
I’m working on the ConfigV2 changes for the support-logging service and in its configuration for Mongo, it has an anomalous property for MongoCollection. This is in addition to the database name signified by the MongoDB property. These are currently set as follows:
MongoDB = 'logging' #DBName
MongoCollection = 'logEntry' #Collection within the above DB
No other service specifies a collection in addition to the database name, instead choosing to just write all documents into the specified database. Indeed having a collection called “logEntry” inside of a “logging” database sounds redundant to me.
ConfigV2 has the following structure for specifying database configuration settings:
Host = 'localhost'
Name = 'coredata'
Password = ''
Port = 27017
Username = ''
Timeout = 5000
Type = 'mongodb'
I would like to standardize on this by removing the need for a MongoCollection from the support-logging configuration. Are there any objections?
