MongoDB Compass Connection Error

Good Afternoon,
I’m getting authentication failed error message while connecting to MongoDB using compass version 1.16.3 with the credentials provided on Lab1.1.
The cluster0-shard-00-00-jxeqq.mongodb.net can be tracerouted.
Kindly assist.

I am able to connect

@pkirugu An authentication error would indicate you’ve connected successfully, but the credentials that are being passed are not correct (i.e its not a connectivity issue necessarily). Are you able to connect with the same credentials with MongoShell?

Thanks,
Mike

No, am unable to connect. Are you using the same credential as specified in Lab 1.1?

Now am able to connect.
Thanks for your help.
Enjoy your day.
