Attempt to switch database target during SASL authentication

I try to setup a Mongo DB in Spring Boot project. I’ve set an uri in application.yml:

spring:
  data:
    mongodb:
      uri: mongodb://user:[email protected]:27017/mydbname

But application fails to read data from repository with error:

Attempt to switch database target during SASL authentication.

Line where error occurs (kotlin):

val emails = emailRepository.findAllByStatus(READY_TO_SEND)

where

interface EmailRepository : MongoRepository<Email, String> {
    fun findAllByStatus(status: EmailStatus) : Collection<Email>
}

and

data class Email(
    @Id
    @get:JsonIgnore
    var id: String? = null,
    @get:NotNull
    val from: MailActor,
    @get:NotEmpty
    val to: Collection<MailActor>,
    @get:NotEmpty
    val subject: String,
    @get:NotEmpty
    val htmlText: String,
    val attachments: Collection<Attachment> = listOf(),
    val cc: Collection<MailActor> = listOf(),
    val bcc: Collection<MailActor> = listOf(),
    @get:JsonIgnore
    val status: EmailStatus = EmailStatus.READY_TO_SEND,
    @get:JsonIgnore
    val created: LocalDateTime = LocalDateTime.now(),
    @get:JsonIgnore
    val lastSendAttempt: LocalDateTime? = null,
)

The same error occurs with findAll and save operations on repository (and likely others too)

I am able to connect to mongo via Intellij Idea client with the same credentials.

I run mongo db with docker-compose

version: '3.1'

services:
  mongodb:
    image: mongo
    container_name: my-service-mongo
    restart: always
    environment:
      MONGO_INITDB_ROOT_USERNAME: user
      MONGO_INITDB_ROOT_PASSWORD: pass
      MONGO_INITDB_DATABASE: mydbname
    ports:
      - 27017:27017
    volumes:
      - ./mongo-init.js:/docker-entrypoint-initdb.d/mongo-init.js:ro

where mongo-init.js is

db.createUser(
    {
        user: "user",
        pwd: "pass",
        roles: [
            {
                role: "readWrite",
                db: "mydbname"
            }
        ]
    }
);

What is going on? The only place in the internet where I found this error message is… mongo source code 8].

Any help appreciated.

Answer

It seems that it’s a bug in mongo DB version

4.4.3-bionic

I’ve changed image in docker-compose to

mongo:3

and the error went away. Uh, so many hours….
