Restrict MongoDB Support Access to Atlas Backend Infrastructure¶
As an organization owner, you can set up your Atlas organization so that MongoDB Production Support Employees, including Technical Service Engineers, can only access your production servers with your explicit permission. If a support issue arises and you want to grant access to your servers for MongoDB support staff, you can grant a 24-hour bypass at the cluster level.
Restricting infrastructure access for MongoDB Production Support Employees may increase support issue response and resolution time and negatively impact cluster availability.
