Connecting to Endpoints

When you have your endpoint, either cluster or instance, you can connect to it using the mongo shell or a connection string.

Connecting Using the mongo Shell

Use the following structure to construct the string that you need to connect to your cluster or instance using the mongo shell:

mongo \ --ssl \ --host Endpoint:Port \ --sslCAFile rds-combined-ca-bundle.pem \ --username UserName \ --password Password

mongo shell examples

Connect to a cluster:

mongo \ --ssl \ --host sample-cluster.corcjozrlsfc.us-east-1.docdb.amazonaws.com:27017 \ --sslCAFile rds-combined-ca-bundle.pem \ --username UserName \ --password Password

Connect to an instance:

mongo \ --ssl \ --host sample-cluster-instance.corcjozrlsfc.us-east-1.docdb.amazonaws.com:27017 \ --sslCAFile rds-combined-ca-bundle.pem \ --username UserName \ --password Password

Connecting Using a Connection String

Use the following structure to construct the connection string that you need to connect to your cluster or instance.

mongodb://UserName:Password@endpoint:port?replicaSet=rs0&ssl_ca_certs=rds-combined-ca-bundle.pem

Connection string examples

Connect to a cluster:

mongodb://UserName:Password@sample-cluster.cluster-corlsfccjozr.us-east-1.docdb.amazonaws.com:27017?replicaSet=rs0&ssl_ca_certs=rds-combined-ca-bundle.pem

Connect to an instance:

mongodb://UserName:Password@sample-cluster-instance.cluster-corlsfccjozr.us-east-1.docdb.amazonaws.com:27017?replicaSet=rs0&ssl_ca_certs=rds-combined-ca-bundle.pem
