Question regarding user authentication

Question, is there a test database in the pre-existing M220-student cluster?

If you followed the default instructions ( as listed in the README and earlier course instructions ) then the user you created should have Read and write to any database privilege. So basically you can “read an write” to ANY named database namespace.

MongoDB does not require you to “create a database”. A new database namespace will be created by the first write operation performed by any user with privilege to do so.

Hi Niellunn, yes my user has appropriate read/write privileges, thanks for the response. But actually my question is why does the default URI always include /test if there is no test database present?
