I guess the training needs to be updated, its too confusing for people who are starting from scratch trying to work with MongoDB
My specific issues is with the command: mongosh “mongodb+srv://sandbox.oueqz.mongodb.net/myFirstDatabase” --apiVersion 1 --username m001-student
1 - Why we need to use --apiVersion 1 in the command ? I spent an hour trying to “ignore” it as I saw suggested on several topics, but beside the familiar Error Message that I was supposed to ignore, it never prompted the password as it was supposed to. I was only able to get the get prompted for the password when issuing the command without the --apiVersion 1 parameter
2 - In the instructions we have the following:
You will be prompted to enter the password that you just created:
I dont know what this mean. m001-mongodb-basis is the password ? It says I “Just created” the password, in which step ? which command did I issue that I created the password ?
3 - In some examples of the same issue Im having, some people are using Admin parameter in some places, some other people seem to not have updated the myfirstdatabase parameter but seems to be working, so should we replace it or not ?
Some people pasted the command they are using without the " in the beggining, or with ’ only. Everything is to vague for people with 0 experience. This instructions in the course need to be clearer and up-to-date
