I found option in pulp plugin configuration (/etc/pulp/server.conf) to point to external mongoDB replica_set
and successfully migrated to it.

name: pulp_database
seeds: server1:27017,server2:27017
ssl: false
unsafe_autoretry: false

but every time I run "foreman-installer -i" settings get rolled back to original local mongoDB

I checked in /etc/foreman-installer/scenarios.d/katello-answers.yaml and I don't see option to add external mongoDB config for pulp

I'e hit this problem as I want to try to build katello for a distributed cloud - and hosting mongo on the same single box is not great for scale or resilient services, or versions of mongo outside of the version supplied by EPEL.

The ability to point at an external mongo db host, replica set, user/password and to include a certificate filename if the external nodes are using SSL would be very useful in a cloud deployment
