I am seeing strange behavior strange behavior where a MONGO_URL with the ssl=true parameter is not working in a docker container with the MONGO_URL being passed in as an environment variable.
Meteor 1.8 application being built and packaged as a pure Node.js app (Node.js 8.11). When run on an node application server with MONGO_URL passed in as an environment variable, the system works as expected. When run as a docker container under kubernetes with MONGO_URL passed in as an environment variable, Meteor seems to be ignoring the ssl=true parameter on the MONGO_URL.
If I add code to force the ssl encryption…
then the container version works as desired.
Does anyone have any insight into what may be going on?
