Configure MongoDB Support Access to Atlas Backend Infrastructure

On this page

  • Block Access at the Organization Level
  • Grant Infrastructure Access to MongoDB Support for 24 hours
  • Grant Sync Data Access to MongoDB Support for 24 hours
  • Revoke Temporary Infrastructure Access to MongoDB Support

As an organization owner, you can set up your Atlas organization so that MongoDB Production Support Employees, including Technical Service Engineers, can only access your production servers with your explicit permission. If an issue that requires MongoDB Support arises and you want to grant 24-hour temporary infrastructure access to MongoDB Support, you can grant access at the database deployments level. You can also revoke temporary infrastructure access at any time prior to the automatic 24-hour expiration.

Important

Blocking infrastructure access from MongoDB Support may increase support issue response and resolution time and negatively impact your database deployment's availability.

You must be an organization owner to adjust this setting.

In the Atlas console, click on your username in the top-right corner and select Organizations.
