Use MongoDB.Atlas

Hi, Can I use MongoDB.Atlas for this course instead of local installation ?
I already have clusters used for other courses .

Good question; I don’t remember off the top of my head… if any validations need to run, then no.

I’ll check later today which labs were done in M201.

Yes, you can. Notice however that you will have to adjust the connection information to allow for the replica set – but I assume you’re familiar with that. If you have any problems, post back here and we’ll try to help.

As another alternative, you might look into using a Docker container for your MongoDB instance. There’s an official Mongo-supplied Docker image for the most recent versions of MongoDB available at https://hub.docker.com/_/mongo/.

That avoids all the issues of cluster management and authentication if you find those getting in your way. Good luck.
