M220N Chapter 1 Ticket Connecting to Atlas

I’m having trouble getting the changes to the appsettings.json file to allow me to connect. I am using this in appsettings.json

  "Logging": {
    "LogLevel": {
      "Default": "Warning"
  "AllowedHosts": "*",
  // TODO: Connection Pooling Ticket
  // modify the connection string to set the maximum connection pool size.
  "MongoUri": "mongodb+srv://m220:m220password@mflix.kmgzg.mongodb.net/mflix?retryWrites=true&w=majority",
  "JwtAuthentication": {
    "SecurityKey": "ouNtF8Xds1jE55/d+iVZ99u0f2U6lQ+AHdiPFwjVW3o=",
    "ValidAudience": "https://localhost:5000/",
    "ValidIssuer": "https://localhost:5000/"

But when I run the test dotnet test --filter "Name=TestReturnsOneMovie" I get these errors:

Did you compile the solution?

Found my error in the code in another file and was able to fix. Thanks!
