Issues & Help¶
We are lucky to have a vibrant MongoDB Java community that includes users with varying levels of experience using the Java driver. We find the quickest way to get support for general questions is through the MongoDB Community Forums.
Refer to our support channels documentation for more information.
Bugs / Feature Requests¶
If you think you've found a bug or want to see a new feature in the Java driver, please open a case in our issue management tool, JIRA:
- Create an account and login.

Bug reports in JIRA for the Java driver and the Core Server (i.e. SERVER) project are public.
If you’ve identified a security vulnerability in a driver or any other MongoDB project, please report it according to the instructions found in the Create a Vulnerability Report page.
We are happy to accept contributions to help improve the driver. We will guide user contributions to ensure they meet the standards of the codebase. Please ensure that any pull requests include documentation, tests, and pass the gradle checks.
To get started check out the source and work on a branch:
$ git clone https://github.com/mongodb/mongo-java-driver.git $ cd mongo-java-driver $ git checkout -b myNewFeature
Finally, ensure that the code passes gradle checks.
