MongoDB for VS Code

MongoDB for VS Code lets you easily work with MongoDB directly from your VS Code environment. Using the MongoDB extension, you can:

  • Connect to a MongoDB instance or cluster
  • Navigate your databases and collections
  • Prototype queries and aggregations

You can install the MongoDB extension from inside of VS Code via the VS Code Extension Marketplace. Help us improve the MongoDB for VS Code by posting your ideas and suggestions for improvements.


To report bugs, please use our VSCODE JIRA project.

  1. Allow specifying connection string via an environment variable

    I have a local replica set that's using randomized ports which results in a non-deterministic connection string, but I have it stored in an environment variable that I use to connect via the shell.

  6. Set a default connection or auto detect a running MongoDB session

    Automatically set up a connection via the MongoDB Extension instead of pasting the connection string manually every time.

    Either by
    1. detecting a running mongo session
    2. Loading default connections, from a place on the system

  7. Specify default database in Advanced Connection Settings form

    The Create New Connection using the Advanced Connection Settings form does not provide a place to specify a default database. I'm specifically interested in this so I like running selected lines and it'd be a way to not include 'use(<db>)' with every query.

  9. Kerberos Authentication for VSCode

    Hi,

    All our databases are secured using Kerberos authenticatoin. I do not see Kerberos/GSSAPI authentication option for this plugin. Looking forward to see this added to the plugin so that we can offer this to our developers. Compass supports Kerberos authentication so it should be an easy port to this plugin. I hope :)

    Thanks

  10. Improvements to Terminal Shell

    When a connection is setup, allow additional configuration for the Terminal Shell

    1. Allow a colour scheme for the shell, so that the user can set background/text colours, so red for LIVE. Very useful when on LIVE/TEST/DEV etc. A clear indication of where you are.

    2. Set a friendly name or full connection string for additional line in the terminal shell, so you can see where you are at all times, where you are connected to.

    You can have multiple shells connected at anyone time and again it helps to see what that shell is connected to.

    You only have to drop…

    {
    "name": "Container database",
    "driver": "MariaDB",
    "server": "localhost",
    "previewLimit": 50,
    "port": 3306,
