      Description

      Description

      The docs at ...

      https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/tutorial/configure-encryption/#encrypt-using-a-new-key

      ... describe how to generate a new Key identifier with KMIP, but don't say what do to with it when done.

      In fact, not action seems to be needed, but the next section in the document describes how to start with an existing key, and this confuses users (and TSEs).

      Perhaps we should explicitly state that `mongod` will save the key that is generated, and no further action is needed.
