Does Atlas Search work with Online Archive (cold) data?


I’m curious whether the Atlas Search functionality works with data that is in cold Online Archive storage. I guess not, but I can’t find anywhere in the documentation where this is clearly stated.


Hi @rmales - Welcome to the community.

I believe you won’t be able to query online archive data sources using $search. I tried testing against a data federation instance with data in S3 and received the following in my test environment:

$search is only supported when querying Atlas data sources

Thanks for the feedback with regards to the documentation and the behaviour of $search and online archive.

If i’ve misunderstood your query please let me know but I hope the above helps.
