Last updated March 2nd, 2023


Public Cloud Databases allow you to focus on building and deploying cloud applications while OVHcloud takes care of the database infrastructure and maintenance in operational conditions.

This guide explains how to connect to a MongoDB database instance with one of the world's most famous Open Source (SSPL) management tool for MongoDB: MongoDB Compass.



A MongoDB instance can be managed through multiple ways. One of the easiest, yet powerful, is to use a Command Line Interface (CLI), as shown in our guide: Connect to MongoDB with CLI or by using programming languages, such as PHP or Python.

Another way is to interact directly using a management tool for MongoDB: MongoDB Compass.

In order to do so, we will need to install MongoDB Compass, then configure our Public Cloud Databases for MongoDB instances to accept incoming connections, and finally configure MongoDB.



Pleese follow the official documentation to install MongoDB Compass.

We are now ready to learn how to connect to our MongoDB instance.
