To customize user access and privacy in MongoDB Compass, you can configure your Compass settings on the Compass interface, the command line, or a configuration file.

You can specify Compass settings and behaviors to customize your Compass experience. For administrators, you can modify the Compass settings to restrict the actions users can take.

For example:

  • If you need to hide credentials from users connecting to MongoDB, you can set the protectConnectionStrings option.

  • If you want to automate the launch of Compass without any input required from users, you can use the command line to launch Compass with specified configuration options.

  • If you have multiple team members using Compass, you can use a common configuration file to ensure a consistent user experience.
