Live Migrate: Pull Your Data into Atlas (MongoDB Before 6.0.8)

You can pull data from existing MongoDB deployments, JSON, or CSV files into Atlas using one of the following tools managed by Atlas within the Atlas UI.

To locate live migration (pull) in the Atlas UI, in the left-side panel of your organization's page, go to Live Migration to Atlas and select General Live Migration.

If your source and destination clusters are running MongoDB 6.0.8 or later, you can live migrate to Atlas using this procedure.
