An IP is a unique numeric identifier for a device connecting to a network. In Atlas, you can only connect to a cluster from a trusted IP address. Within Atlas, 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.

To add your IP address to an IP access list, you must have Project Data Access Read/Write access or higher to the project.

You added your IP address to the IP access list when you created your first cluster.

To add other IP access list entries, see Configure IP Access List Entries.

To learn more about the security features available, see Configure Security Features for Database Deployments.

Now that you added your connection IP address to the IP access list, proceed to Connect to Your Cluster.
