Hi there!

It looks like you may have resolved this issue in your stack overflow:

I figured out the issue, my pod DNS was not configured to allow external connections, so I set dnsPolicy: Default in my YML

Let me know if you have any additional questions.

Hi community,

Setting dnsPolicy: Default allows us to connect perfectly to mongodb atlas.

But, is there any way to get access to the mongodb atlas cluster without setting dnsPolicy: Default from DO K8s?

I also need communication with other services within the cluster.

I am using Istio and I have defined a Service Entry like this:

apiVersion: networking.istio.io/v1alpha3
kind: ServiceEntry
  name: mongo-service-entry
  - xxx.mongodb.net
  - number: 27017
    name: mongo
    protocol: MONGO
  location: MESH_EXTERNAL
  resolution: NONE 

But I can only get access white listening the droplets ip’s, something that obviously is not a good idea. Because these ip’s can change for example with autoscaling.
