Introduction

  • MongoDb Atlas clusters are managed outside of AWS and require you to configure MongoDb Atlas provider.

  • To configure the provider, you need to have organizationId, publicKey and privateKey. This guide will walk you through getting them.

1. Create MongoDb Atlas account

If you don't have a MongoDb Atlas account yet, head over to MongoDb Atlas registration page.

After you create the account, you will be able to "Choose a deployment option to get started.". You can skip this, because Stacktape handles the database creation and deletion for you.
