A data source in MongoDB Charts references one of the following:
A collection or database view in your MongoDB deployment.
A charts view that you create using a collection.
You can use the fields in the data source to construct a chart. When you build a chart, you must specify the data source that the chart uses.
Deployments in MongoDB Charts reference Atlas deployments that contain valid Charts data sources, including:
All clusters and serverless instances in your Atlas project for which you have the
Project Data Access Read Onlyrole or higher.
All federated database instances in your project, including Online Archives.
Connect or Disconnect Data Sources and Deployments
Project Owner can connect or disconnect data
sources and deployments. To learn more, see
Connect or Disconnect Data Sources and Deployments.
Charts connects to all deployments and data sources in your project by default.
Manage Data Sources
To manage settings for a data source, see Manage Data Sources. To manage pipelines, see Create and Manage Charts Views.
To apply a pipeline, use a charts view. You can't apply pipelines to an entire collection.
To manage settings for the Atlas deployments that contain your data sources, see Manage Deployments.
Edit a Chart's Data Source
To edit the data source for an existing chart:
Click the Project tab.
All of your connected deployments appear.
A deployment and its data sources won't display on the

modal unless they are connected to Charts. Only a
Project Owner can connect or disconnect deployments and data sources.
All deployments and data sources in the project connect to
Charts by default.
To learn how to set the data source for a new chart, see Build Charts.
Try Out Charts with the Sample Data Source
Charts automatically includes the Sample Data: Movies data source in all Charts tenants. The Sample Dashboard uses this data source to show the charts you can create. You can access the sample data source from all dashboards.
Add, edit, or delete the data in the Sample Data: Movies data source.
Remove the sample data source.
Externally share or embed charts that use the sample data.
