Add Your IP Address to the IP Access List

An IP address is a unique numeric identifier for a device connecting to a network. Within Atlas, you can create a list of trusted IP addresses that can connect to your federated database instance and access your data. Atlas only allows connections to a federated database instance from addresses listed in the IP access list.


If you already added your IP address in your project's IP access list and created a MongoDB user, you can proceed to Connect Using the MongoDB Shell.

Estimated completion time: 2 minutes


The menu expands to show the Add a connection IP address modal.
