mongodb-shard type

If MongoDB is deployed under an account, for every mongodb deployment, there will be a mongodb-shard deployment which shares its deployment name. This is a child deployment of the mongodb deployment and API calls directed to the mongodb-shard will fail. Direct any API calls for the MongoDB database to the mongodb parent deployment.

🚧

No MongoDB Classic

MongoDB Classic is not available, and will never be available for deployment through the API.
