Cannot connect/ different connect instructions in Atlas

When I click connect, I am getting different screen. I follow those instructions but then I can’t enter a password when prompted in cmd.


Any help will be appreciated. Thanks!

Hi @Sabrina_Suarez_33002,

Plese follow these steps:

  1. Check your Mongo Shell version and choose the correct version from the “Select your
    Mongo Shell version” dropdown menu.

  2. Then, you can simply copy the connection string mentioned in step 2.

  3. If you are using Mongo Shell version 3.6 or later, run the connection string as it is without
    password. The prompt will ask you to enter the password later. Otherwise you can append
    password after the username in connection string as below:

    --password m001-mongodb-basics

I hope this solves your issue, if not, please let me know.


Thank you Sonali! I followed the instructions and the issue I have is when I am prompted to put in the password, it looks like I am not typing anything in the cmd window. The characters won’t show as I am typing out the password.
