Are you using mongodb for the analytics and how do you store/index/query custom fields?

We use mongodb for the analytics as well yes. It's a less obvious choice there than for the CMS part, but it's a good enough fit, in-place updates can be really handy and we prefer not having 2 different databases.

We don't index custom fields and for queries where that would be required we do the actual querying with ElasticSearch, but for simple filters on a custom field or the like, Mongo does fine.
