As a fully managed database service, MongoDB Atlas makes life simpler for anyone interacting with MongoDB, whether you’re deploying a cluster on demand, restoring a snapshot, evaluating real-time performance metrics, or inspecting data.
Today, we’re taking it one step further by allowing developers to manipulate their data right from within the Atlas UI. The embedded Data Explorer, which has historically allowed you to run queries, view metadata regarding your deployments, and retrieve information such as index usage statistics, now supports full CRUD functionality.
To support these capabilities, new Project-level roles with different permission levels have been added.
You can assign users these new roles in the Users and Teams settings.
In addition, all Data Explorer operations are tracked and presented in the Atlas Activity Feed (found in the Alerts menu for each Project), allowing you to see who did what, and when.
When you click into the Data Explorer in Atlas, you should see new controls for interacting with your documents, collections, databases, and indexes. For example, modify existing documents using the intuitive visual editor, or insert new documents and clone or delete existing ones in just a few clicks. A comprehensive list of available Data Explorer operations can be found in the Atlas documentation.
The Data Explorer is currently available for M10 Atlas clusters and higher.
Update: Since this article was published, we have made the Data Explorer available to all MongoDB Atlas tiers, including the free M0 tier, so it's a great time to deploy a free database cluster in minutes and start your journey with the Data Explorer.

Building the Next Big Thing Since being originally founded in Finland as a food delivery service, Wolt expanded their offering into groceries, gifts, and other items, and makes it possible for people living in hundreds of cities across 25 countries to get whatever they need, delivered quickly and reliably to their front door. Due to the rapidly increasing scale in their business and new partnerships with enterprise retailers, Wolt needed to rethink their existing tooling that is used by their tens of thousands of merchant partners to manage their offering inside Wolt’s delivery platform. To provide their merchants with multi-venue management capabilities, increased automation, and no limitations on amounts of menu items, Wolt chose fully-managed MongoDB Atlas due to its flexible data document model, support for Kafka and event-driven architectures, high performance, and limitless scalability. Industry Transformation Gong ’s Revenue Intelligence Platform uses proprietary AI technology to enable revenue teams to utilize customer interactions to increase business efficiency, improve decision-making, and accelerate revenue growth. Gong chose MongoDB Atlas as a high-performing transactional database due to its ability to handle Gong’s complex data structures and algorithms, and indeed MongoDB Atlas was able to support 30-40 million daily interactions and mission-critical search queries. Through the adoption of MongoDB Atlas, Gong’s queries take only 20-30 milliseconds, and with Atlas’ sharding capabilities, Gong future-proofed its environment for ongoing growth and gained greater control over its customer data.
