Document that libmongocrypt accepts base64 strings as alternative to BSON binary

    • Type: Icon: Task Task
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • Priority: Icon: Unknown Unknown
    • 1.10.0
    • Affects Version/s: 1.10.0
    • Component/s: Docs
    • Labels:

      We should await confirmation in CDRIVER-4088 that this is indeed the case before making any documentation changes.

      Additionally, it does not appear as if libmongocrypt actually requires the BSON binary type to have sub-type 0. We should confirm if that has always been the case and remove any mention of sub-type 0 if so.

      Quoting kevin.albertson:

      • There was never a subtype requirement.
      • Users of libmongoc 1.18.0 can now pass a base64 string as an alternative for binary arguments. In 1.18.0 the only change is that the previous local.key option (which was only acceptable as a BSON binary of any subtype, can now also be configured as a base64 string)
