Add Your Connection IP Address to IP Access List¶
Estimated completion time: 2 minutes
An IP is a unique numeric identifier for a device connecting to a network. In Atlas, you can only connect to a cluster from a trusted IP address. Within Atlas, you can create a list of trusted IP addresses, referred to as a IP access list, that can be used to connect to your cluster and access your data.
You must add your IP address to the IP access list before you can connect to your cluster. To add your IP address to the IP access list:
In the Clusters view, click Connect for the cluster to which you want to connect.
Atlas highlights the Setup connection security step.
Click Add Your Current IP Address.¶
To secure your MongoDB Atlas cluster, limit access to specified IP addresses.
The menu expands to show the Add a connection IP address modal.
Click Add IP Address.¶
Now that you added your connection IP address to the IP access list, proceed to Create a Database User for Your Cluster.
