Question

Managed MongoDB Permissions

I’ve set up a managed mongodb cluster and created users. From what I’ve read in the docs, you can’t change the permissions on them, they just get the same ones as doadmin. I was looking to create a few read only profiles, or giving more granular access to some users. Is there no way to implement that on the managed db?

Hey @pedrogius,

I don’t think that this is possible at the moment, unless you setup MongoDB on a Droplet.

It looks like someone has had the same idea before and has posted it on our Product Ideas board. The best thing to do would be to head over and add your vote to it, as well as adding any additional information in the comments for exactly what you’d like to see implemented!

Hope that helps!
