Atlas CLI

The MongoDB Atlas Command Line Interface, or Atlas CLI (mongodb-atlas-cli), allows you to create, manage, and automate operations related to your MongoDB Atlas deployment. This includes tasks like provisioning clusters, creating and deleting users, and controlling network access. You can also access related products like Atlas Search. With the Atlas CLI, you can quickly interact with MongoDB services from the command line for easier testing and scripting.

You can install the Atlas CLI via, Homebrew, Apt, Yum, or a binary download. Help us improve the MongoDB Atlas CLI by posting your ideas and suggestions for improvements.
