MongoDB App allows to specify 4 types of authentication mechanism:

1) #Authentication mechanism is X509 

vix.mongodb.auth.mechanism = X509 

vix.mongodb.auth.username = [username] 


2) #Authentication mechanism is Kerberos 

vix.mongodb.auth.mechanism = Kerberos

vix.mongodb.auth.username = [username] 


3) #Authentication mechanism is CR 

vix.mongodb.auth.mechanism = CR 

vix.mongodb.auth.username = [username] 

vix.mongodb.auth.password = [password as plain text]


4) #Authentication mechanism is Plain

vix.mongodb.auth.mechanism = Plain

vix.mongodb.auth.username = [username]

vix.mongodb.auth.source = [source] The value for 'vix.mongodb.auth.mechanism' is case-insensitive.

I personally have not tried .pem, (I just tried it without authentication) but based on this link it looks like you are right:

vix.mongodb.auth.source is for source='source_database' Database, not for .pem file attachment is there any other solution for this ??
