So I created my cluster. Not only that the connection string for the mongodb shell was way shorter for me compared to the one seen in the video, there’s something else I found kinda weird.
So, it says we gonna use the username m001-student, that one mentioned password in Lab 2.0, same cluster name “sandbox”, how does the shell know once I login it’s mine and not anyone else’s cluster/sandbox who has entered the same credentials on the same free tier server?
The url does not even have any cryptic “fingerprints” to identify me, at least I don’t see anything.
Here is my connection shell command: mongo “mongodb+srv://sandbox-?.mongodb.net/test” --username m001-student
There was something else where the question mark is, could it be that’s the spot where that “fingerprint” is?
