Disable Automation for a Deployment

When you disable automation for a deployment, you can no longer control it directly through Ops Manager. If you are removing a managed process and want to be able to easily stop and start the process after removal, you can create scripts for stopping and starting the process.

If you do not want to leave a managed process running after removal, shut down the process before removing it.


You must shut down mongos processes before you can remove them from Automation. The Remove from Cluster option is not available for mongos processes that are running.

You can continue to monitor the process after unmanaging it. If you do continue monitoring the process, you do not need to change any backups running for that process.

As an alternative to removing a process from automated management, you can temporarily suspend management of the process. This is useful if you need to temporarily shut down the process, for example for maintenance, and do not want Ops Manager to automatically start the process back up until you are ready.

Remove a Process from Management


Click Deployment, then the Processes tab, then the Topology view.


Click the ellipsis icon next to the desired cluster and select Remove from Ops Manager.


Select Unmanage this item in Ops Manager but continue to monitor and click Remove Cluster.


Click Review & Deploy to review your changes.


Click Confirm & Deploy to deploy your changes.

Otherwise, click Cancel and you can make additional changes.
