Hi there,

Indeed it is not possible to disable the SSL for the Managed MongoDB databases.

An option would be to create the certificate file in your app’s code before initializing the MongoDB connection:

fs.writeFileSync(path.resolve(__dirname, ""), process.env.CA_CERT)

Then you can reference that file in your connection string as normal.
