Unable to backup the shard server - mongodb 5.0.13 mongodump ver 100.6.1

get the following error while doing a backup of shard server.

error :
Failed: error creating intents to dump: error creating intents for database config: error counting config.system.sharding_ddl_coordinators: (Unauthorized) not authorized on config to execute command { count: “system.sharding_ddl_coordinators”,

user that is doing the backup has the following roles
“roles” : [
“role” : “backup”,
“db” : “admin”
“role” : “read”,
“db” : “config”

also tried upgrading mongodump to 100.7.0, but get the same error

Check this jira ticket
Try the workaround or upgrade to latest tools version

Thank you Ramachandra!.. the solution worked after creating a custom role and granting find privileges on system.sharding_ddl_coordinators
