Enable the Atlas SQL Interface

Enable the Atlas SQL Interface with the Atlas SQL Quick Start or by configuring your own federated database instance, which automatically enables Atlas SQL.

The Quick Start procedure allows you to run Atlas SQL queries on data in the Atlas cluster that you specify by creating a simple federated database instance in the background. You cannot modify this federated database instance, but you can delete it.

Alternatively, you can configure a federated database instance yourself using the Advanced Configuration procedure, which describes optional sample data and more customization options that you can use. You can query data across multiple data sources, limit namespaces, rename virtual Data Federation namespaces, and create views. When you create a federated database instance, it automatically enables Atlas SQL.
