String that contains the information necessary to connect from MongoDB Cloud Manager or Ops Manager to MongoDB Atlas during a Live Migration from a MongoDB Cloud Manager or Ops Manager deployment to a cluster in MongoDB Atlas.

When you migrate data from a MongoDB Cloud Manager or Ops Manager deployment, you need to do the following:

  1. Generate a link-token in MongoDB Atlas
  2. Enter it in your MongoDB Cloud Manager or Ops Manager organization’s settings.

You use the same link-token to migrate each deployment in your MongoDB Cloud Manager or Ops Manager organization sequentially, one at a time. You can generate multiple link-tokens in MongoDB Atlas. Use one unique link-token for each MongoDB Cloud Manager or Ops Manager organization.


Name Type Description
status string

State of the connection that exists between this organization and the target cluster in the MongoDB Atlas organization.
