Create a Database User for Your Federated Database Instance

You must create a database user to access your deployment. For security purposes, Atlas requires clients to authenticate as MongoDB database users to access federated database instances.


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

To create a database user, you must have Organization Owner or Project Owner access to the project.

Estimated completion time: 2 minutes

To add a database user to your cluster:


Click the Connect button for your federated database instance.


You'll use this username and password combination to access data on your cluster.


If your password contains special characters, you will need to encode them. For more information, see Special characters in connection string password.
