Documentation bug: 'grantRolesToUser` returns 404

https://www.mongodb.com/docs/docs-qa/manual/reference/method/db.grantRolesToUser/index.html which is a link passed to me by the Mongo docs search engine for grantRolesToUser returns 404.

Thanks @Jack_Woehr, I’ll let the docs team know as well.

The documentation has recently moved from docs.mongodb.com to mongodb.com/docs, so it looks like an incorrect url has been indexed.

The intended destination is https://www.mongodb.com/docs/manual/reference/method/db.grantRolesToUser/index.html.

Can you confirm the url you were searching from? From your description I inferred searching from within the MongoDB documentation (i.e. not a third party search result, like Google search).

Yes, that must have been it.
I suppose, @Stennie , you can discern that I was searching frantically (DuckDuckGo) as I got stalled :confused:
I certainly had a time figuring out what role was needed to drop a database. Probably I was told 3 years ago when I did the Basic Courses, but as a life-long generalist, I am an “open book” programmer :slight_smile: I might still be searching if a 3rd-party site hadn’t described MongoDB roles more clearly than the MongoDB docs themselves.
