This page describes how to deploy a federated database instance for accessing data in an HTTP data store.
The support for HTTP data stores is available as a Beta feature. The feature and the corresponding documentation may change at any time during the Beta stage.
Before you begin, you will need to:
Create a MongoDB Atlas account, if you do not have one already.
Format your data store using one of the supported data formats.
