I am running OSX 11.4. I am going through the introductory tutorials on MongoDB’s site. I can set up the organization, project, and clusters and load example files without problem. But I cannot connect with Compass. I have copied and pasted the information from MongoDB.com directly into Compass and changed the password to match the tutorial and I get a “bad auth” error and no connection.
is the generated link that does not work in compass (copied and pasted directly from the intro lesson)
Remove < > from password in your string and try again.It should work
Thank you!! That fixed it.
