Question

No permissions to update database in Digitalocean managed DB

I deployed a dump of my mongodb to a mongod which is controlled by Digital Ocean, and after connecting to the database, I do not have permission to update some databases, I get Error: not authorized on <ab> to execute command, I have the following rights:

{
"role": "backup",
"db": "admin"
},
{
"role": "clusterMonitor",
"db": "admin"
},
{
"role": "dbAdminAnyDatabase",
"db": "admin"
},
{
"role": "readWriteAnyDatabase",
"db": "admin"
},
{
"role": "restore",
"db": "admin"
}

but if I try to extend them with mongodb, nothing happens, they remain the same, what am I doing wrong?

Hi @dest,

Can you confirm if you are using “doadmin” user to update the user database and getting “Error: not authorized” error?

If not I will suggest using “doadmin” user to update user databases.

For More information on MongoDB managed database users and databases :

https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/databases/mongodb/how-to/manage-users-and-databases/

And for Importing database to MongoDB managed database, you can check the below article :

https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/databases/mongodb/how-to/import-collections/

If you are still seeing not authorize error using “doadmin” user, you can open a support ticket with DigitalOcean.

it seems my database has the name config, and it is the same as the system name, as I understand it …
