  • Behavior

Deprecated since version 4.0.

Client libraries use getnonce to generate a one-time password for authentication.

Applications should not invoke getnonce directly.

This command will be removed in a future release.

Starting in MongoDB 4.2, if the client that issued the getnonce disconnects before the operation completes, MongoDB marks the getnonce for termination (i.e. killOp on the operation).
