note that this is a sandbox cluster, but is called cluster 0, not sandbox. I must have missed the option to change the cluster name. (Another background problem, since I had a logon for my company atlas, my business email login would not give me the choice of creating a cluster, given the new ‘integrated’ atlas services, so I had to use my personal email to get a free sandbox cluster. )
I then get something different from the lecture:

Only a connection string, no other method available. Of course, this connection string looks quite different from the URI connection string in the lecture. I do wonder if I am entirely in the wrong place.
