In this lesson we will create a free account on After the account has been created we will create a group in MongoDB Atlas and in that group we create a free cluster. In order to create the cluster we need to provide a username and password. We create our user called admin and have the site generate our password for use. Once the cluster is created we look at where we can find the connection string.

It is not clear how to set the connection to mongodb on the atlas server? The cluster is up and running. I have an URI to connect with a password. What is the database to set in the URI. Is there something to change in the config json files? or it is enough to assign the URI to the MONGODB_URL?

Thanks for your help.
