Add Your Connection IP Address to IP Access List

  • Procedure
  • Next Steps

An IP is a unique numeric identifier for a device connecting to a network. In MongoDB Atlas for Government, you can only connect to a cluster from a trusted IP address. Within AtlasGov, you can create a list of trusted IP addresses, referred to as a IP access list, that can be used to connect to your cluster and access your data.

You must add your IP address to the IP access list before you can connect to your cluster. To add your IP address to the IP access list:


In the Clusters view, click Connect for the cluster to which you want to connect.

Atlas highlights the Setup connection security step.


To secure your AtlasGov cluster, limit access to specified IP addresses.

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

After allowing your IP address, you must create a database user to connect to your cluster.
