Atlas offers the following resources to manage your Atlas clusters and serverless instances.

The Clusters view displays all clusters and serverless instances to which the user belongs.


The All Clusters page displays.


The All Clusters page groups clusters and serverless instances under their Atlas project.

To filter the returned list of clusters:

  • Use the search box. Enter the organization name, project name, or cluster/serverless instance name to limit returned clusters to specific organizations, projects, or clusters/serverless instances.

  • Use the dropdown menus to limit the returned list using one or more of the following filters:

    Filter Purpose
    Menu Options
    Status of the nodes within the cluster.
    • All

    • Nodes Available

    • Some Nodes Available

    • No Primary

    • Has Warnings & Alerts

    Deployment type of cluster.
    • All

    • Standalones

    • Replica Sets

    • Sharded Clusters

    MongoDB versions

    Version of MongoDB that the clusters are running.

    • All

    • Inconsistent

    • 5.0

    • 6.0

    • 7.0


    If the FCV of your cluster is set and if the FCV is below the MongoDB version of your cluster, the cluster in the Atlas UI Clusters page shows the FCV of your cluster to reflect the features that are currently available on your cluster during the upgrade. After Atlas upgrades your cluster to the new version, the cluster in the Atlas UI Clusters page shows the new MongoDB version of your cluster.

    Additional configuration options for the cluster including authentication, backup, and TLS.
    • All

    • Auth OFF

    • Backup OFF

    • SSL OFF

To display clusters that have not contacted Atlas in the last 6 months, click Show Inactive Clusters.

Atlas returns the following information for each cluster:

Name of the cluster.
MongoDB Version of the cluster.
Data Size
Size of the cluster data.
Backup enabled status.
Number of nodes in the cluster. This only displays for clusters.
SSL enabled status. This displays only for clusters.
Authentication required status. This displays only for clusters.
Number of open alerts. This displays only for clusters.

To return all Atlas deployments using the Atlas CLI, run the following command:

atlas deployments list [options]

To learn more about the command syntax and parameters, see the Atlas CLI documentation for atlas deployments list.

Through the Cluster Detail view, Atlas displays clusters and serverless instances grouped into their Project.

  1. If it is not already displayed, select the organization that contains your desired project from the Organizations menu in the navigation bar.

  2. If it is not already displayed, select your desired project from the Projects menu in the navigation bar.

  3. If the Clusters page is not already displayed, click Database in the sidebar.


The Atlas consoles displays the following for clusters in the selected project:

  • Metadata:

    Cluster Name
    Name of the cluster.
    Version of MongoDB that the cluster runs.
    Cluster Tier
    Cluster tiers such as M10, M30, or the like (clusters only).
    Cloud region where Atlas hosts the cluster.
    Type of structure for the cluster (i.e., Replica Set or Sharded Cluster), and number of nodes in the cluster (clusters only).
    Linked App Services App
    Name of the Atlas App Services application linked to this cluster, if appropriate (clusters only).
  • High-level metrics:

    • Read / write operations per second.

    • Number of open connections to the cluster.

    • Logical size of cluster data.

    • Cluster disk IOPS (Available on M10+ clusters).


Atlas pauses monitoring for these metrics on M0 clusters without connection activity for seven days. Atlas indicates which clusters fell into this state in the Cluster Detail view. Atlas limits details displayed for these clusters.

To resume monitoring, make a successful connection to the cluster using:

After you view your clusters, you can:

Manage your Atlas clusters with cluster-specific options.
Manage your Atlas serverless instances with serverless-specific options.
Manage your Atlas Global Clusters. Atlas Global Clusters require that you define single or multi-region Zones. You can also shard global collections for global writes.
