    Contentstack DataSync Content Store MongoDB

    Contentstack DataSync lets you sync your Contentstack data with your database, enabling you to save data locally and serve content directly from your database. It is a combination of four powerful modules that is DataSync Webhook Listener, DataSync Manager, DataSync Asset Store Filesystem, DataSync Content Store — Filesystem and MongoDB.

    The Cotentstack MongoDB Content Store is part of Contentstack DataSync's content storage drivers and is used to store data in the MongoDB database. Any publish, unpublish, or delete action performed on content will be tracked by the Webhook Listener and the relevant content will be synced accordingly in your MongoDB database.


    • Nodejs v8 or above
    • Mongodb v3.6 or above


    This is how the datasync-content-store-filesystem is defined in the boilerplate:

    const assetStore = require('@contentstack/datasync-asset-store-filesystem')
    const contentStore = require('@contentstack/datasync-content-store-mongodb')
    const listener = require('@contentstack/webhook-listener')
    const syncManager = require('@contentstack/datasync-manager')
    const config = require('./config')
    syncManager.setContentStore(contentStore)// Sets required asset store to sync manager.
    .then(() => {
        console.log('Contentstack sync started successfully!')


    Here is the config table for the module:

    Property Data Type Default value Description
    dbName string contentstack-persistent-db Optional. The MongoDB database name
    collectionName string contents Optional. MongoDB database's collection name
    uri string mongodb://localhost:27017 Optional. The MongoDB connection URI
    indexes object see config below Optional. Option to create db indexes via configuration
    unwantedKeys object see config below Optional. Keys to be removed, while data is being inserted
