Hi @mrtonyq22,

The only way I know is using the db.updateUser() function:

db.updateUser( username, update, writeConcern )

Updates the user’s profile on the database on which you run the method. An update to a field completely replaces the previous field’s values. This includes updates to the user’s roles array.
