Pretty much the title - can I expect atlas search indexes to be synced?
Hi Mongo community!
Is there a way to export/import Atlas Search indexes from one database to another? When I want to restore a test database from production I typically drop the test database and mongorestore it from a mongodump of the production database. Then I have to go back and manually rebuild each Atlas Search index because they do not carry over from the restore.
Am I doing this wrong? Is there a way to save/restore the Atlas Search indexes?
In this post there is a link to
this which then points to that which says that since June 14, 2023, Atlas Search indexes are saved with the Cloud Snapshots.
So – at least –
Cloud Backups are here to help as a workaround.
Mongodump and mongorestore are not cloud specific, they are the same tool for MongoDB community or MongoDB entreprise. As Atlas Search is a specific cloud feature of MongoDB Atlas, I don’t see mongodump and mongorestore supporting Atlas Search index definition for now at least but I could be wrong.
Thanks for the response
