After connecting to DB unable to export mongodump command

Hello,
I can connect to my new atlas cluster from IDE but after that cannot run mongodump.
Is there a middle step, error attached

Hello and Welcome to the forum,

mongodump is part of mongodb-tools, a set of binaries different from mongo shell.

So quit out of the mongo shell using Ctrl + C and then run mongodump again. It should run just fine.

Alternatively, open a new terminal with the + button on the IDE and run your mongodump command.


Remember there is a great doc for mongo. For example:

Run mongodump from the system command line, not the mongo shell.

From mongodump docs.

Hi Miranda
Thanks for solution and reference to relevant document. It was very helpful to move ahead with the course. I am completely new to DBs…
