Announcing Search Index Management in MongoDB Compass

You can now create and manage Atlas Search and Atlas Vector Search indexes on the interface many of you know and love: MongoDB Compass. Seamlessly build full-text and semantic search applications on top of your Atlas database, delivering swift and relevant results for a range of use cases including e-commerce sites, customer support chatbots, recommendation systems, and more.

Gone are the days of juggling multiple tools to bring your search queries to fruition. And, with a variety of templates to choose from, Compass simplifies learning search index syntax so you can focus on what’s most important to you: building exceptional end-user experiences on top of your search queries.

Try it out

To get started, connect to an Atlas cluster from Compass. If you don’t have one, sign up. From there, simply navigate to Compass’ Indexes tab and select Create Search Index.

It’s easy to build your first search index using one of our templates. Select either Search or Vector Search, and use the appropriate template. In this example, we’re going to create a Vector Search index.

Once you're satisfied with your index definition, click Aggregate to start testing out your pipeline in Compass.

Compass’ new search index experience leads you to results in just three guided steps, all without leaving the comfort of Compass.
