    2. dSource (Sharded/Replica set) details:

      1. Staging Replica Set Name: This is the staging database replica set name. The default value is dlpx_rs0.

      2. Staging MongoDB Host: This is the staging host for creating a dSource.

      3. Mount Path: This is the mount path for dSource MongoDB instance data files.

      4. bindIP String: The default value is

      5. Staging Port: This is the staging host port for MongoDB dSource instance.

    3. dSource tuning details:

      1. Oplog Size: This is the size of oplogs

      2. Journal Commit Interval: This is the journal commit interval, measured in ms. 

      3. Storage Engine: The default value is wiredTiger

      4. Enable SetParams: Enable the specified setParameters

      5. Set Parameter: These are the parameters that need to be added in the mongod.conf. 

      6. Enable Auditlog: Enable the specified audit log parameters. 

      7. Auditlog Parameters: These are the parameters that need to be added in the mongod.conf file.

    4. Enable Authentication: Enable member and client authentication for the database. 

    5. dSource authentication details:

      1. Mongo Admin User: This is the admin user of the staging database. This user should be created on the fly.

      2. MongoDB Password: This is the admin user password of the staging database.

      3. Cluster Auth Mode: The accepted values are: keyFile, x509, sendKeyFile, sendX509

      4. KeyAuth keyfile name: This is the absolute path of keyFile

    6. Enable SSL/TLS: Enable SSL/TLS member authentication.
