    Why is MongoDB timestamp is disabled?

    That's because you really don't want to use timestamp which is a MongoDB-internal data type:


    You want to use date which is really an ISODate data type or alternatively use string with a format date-time, ideally formatted according to ISO 8601.


    Alternatively, you may want to use a String data type with a date-time format.


    We do display the timestamp data type for backward compatibility purposes, but disabled it so users would not be tempted to use it.
