Issue on Lab: Connect to your Atlas Cluster


I am stuck on this step, i think i write the url on the terminal as required, with the good url (mongo “mongodb+srv://” --username m001-student) but it doesn’t seem to work. And i don’t seem alone to struggle on it.

Should i skip this step? Does people usually do?

Thank you

Hi @jr_sls,

First of all Welcome to the MongoDB community forum. We wish you happy learning.

Here is the connection string :
mongo "mongodb+srv://" --username m001-student

Note: Don’t use an inverted comma to bind the connection string.

Let us know if you are still having any issues.



The white rectangle right after the user name m001-student makes me feel that you forgot to press the [ENTER] at the end of the command.


Yes without the inverted coma it worked, thank you!!
