Go to the Big Data Guided Setup
From the navigation pane, go to Guided setup.

On the Protect tab, at the bottom of the page, click More.
Click the Big data apps tile.
The Big data app setup page appears.

Create a Server Backup Plan That You Can Use for MongoDB
If you already have a server backup plan that you can use, you can skip this step.
On the Create server backup plan page, click Create a new plan, and then specify the settings for a server backup plan that you can use for the MongoDB cluster.
Add the MongoDB Cluster
On the Add a Big Data application page, from the Application type list, select MongoDB.
If no MongoDB master node is found, a message appears, with a link that you can use to download and install the Commvault software on the master node so that you can select it from the Master node list.
In the Cluster name box, enter a name for the cluster.
From the Master node list, select the master node.
In the Binary path box, enter the path to the folder that contains the mongod or mongos executable file.
The Commvault software uses mongo/mongosh, mongod, mongodump, and mongorestore for backup and restore operations. Keep the binaries in bin path and verify that the bin path is same across all the nodes in the cluster.
In the OS user name box, enter the OS user name that you want to use to run the MongoDB servers.
Commvault software uses the OS user name to start the MongoDB servers after the restore operation.
Note: The OS user must have the permission to start the server and have ownership of the files in dbPath.
In Port number box, enter the mongod or mongos port number.
From Plan list, select the server backup plan to use for the cluster.
To back up MongoDB clusters in both Windows and Linux environments, under Database authentication, you can enter the credentials of an account to authenticate with.
Note: Log backups with authentication are not supported on Windows.
The account must have one of the following on the admin database:
The root role. This is a superuser role.
The backup, restore, clusterMonitor, and hostManager roles. If you do not want to assign a superuser role to the database user, use these roles.
