Tyk Dashboard requires a persistent datastore for its operations. By default MongoDB is used. From Tyk v4.0, we also support PostgreSQL.
MongoDB Supported Versions and Drop-in Replacement
MongoDB is our default storage option. We support the following versions:
- MongoDB 4.4.x (with mgo driver)
- MongoDB 4.4.x, 5.0.x, 6.0.x (with mongo-go driver).
Note: mongo-go driver is available from Tyk 5.0.2.
MongoDB 3.x to 4.2.x
mgo driver works with MongoDB 3.x to 4.2.x too, but we no longer test MongoDB versions prior to 4.4 since they are EOL
You can also use the following as a drop-in replacement for MongoDB:
Please check here for MongoDB driver and production configurations.
