Amazon DocumentDB Quotas and Limits

This topic describes the resource quotas, limits, and naming constraints for Amazon DocumentDB (with MongoDB compatibility).

For certain management features, Amazon DocumentDB uses operational technology that is shared with Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) and Amazon Neptune.

Regional Quotas

For certain management features, Amazon DocumentDB uses operational technology that is shared with Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) and Amazon Neptune. The following table contains regional limits that are shared among Amazon DocumentDB, Amazon RDS, and Neptune.

The following limits are per AWS account per region.

Resource AWS Default Limit
Clusters 40
Cluster parameter groups 50
Event subscriptions 20
Instances 40
Manual cluster snapshots 100
Read replicas per cluster 15
Subnet groups 50
Subnets per subnet group 20
Tags per resource 50
VPC security groups per instance 5

You can use Service Quotas to request an increase for a quota, if the quota is adjustable. Some requests are automatically resolved, while others are submitted to AWS Support. You can track the status of a quota increase request that is submitted to AWS Support. Requests to increase service quotas do not receive priority support. If you have an urgent request, please contact AWS Support. For more information on Service Quotas, see What Is Service Quotas?

To request a quota increase for Amazon DocumentDB:

  1. Open the Service Quotas console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/servicequotas and, if necessary, sign in.

  2. In the navigation pane, choose AWS services.

  3. Select Amazon DocumentDB from the list, or type Amazon DocumentDB in the search field.

  4. If the quota is adjustable, you can select its radio button or its name, and then choose Request quota increase from the top right of the page.

  5. For Change quota value, enter the new value. The new value must be greater than the current value.

  6. Choose Request. After the request is resolved, the Applied quota value for the quota is set to the new value.

  7. To view any pending or recently resolved requests, choose Dashboard from the navigation pane. For pending requests, choose the status of the request to open the request receipt. The initial status of a request is Pending. After the status changes to Quota requested, you'll see the case number with AWS Support. Choose the case number to open the ticket for your request.

Naming Constraints

The following table describes naming constraints in Amazon DocumentDB.

Resource Default Limit
Cluster identifier
  • Length is [1–63] letters, numbers, or hyphens.

  • First character must be a letter.

  • Cannot end with a hyphen or contain two consecutive hyphens.

Fully qualified collection name: <db>.<col> Length is [3–120] characters.
Fully qualified index name: <db>.<col>.$<index> Length is [6–127] characters.
Index name: <col>$<index>

Length is [3–63] characters.

Instance identifier
  • Length is [1–63] letters, numbers, or hyphens

  • First character must be a letter

  • Cannot end with a hyphen or contain two consecutive hyphens

  • Must be unique for all instances (across Amazon RDS, Amazon Neptune, and Amazon DocumentDB) per AWS account, per Region.

    • / (forward slash)

    • " (double quotation mark)

TTL Constraints

Deletes from a TTL index are not guaranteed within a specific timeframe and are best effort. Factors like instance resource utilization, document size, and overall throughput can affect the timing of a TTL delete.
