MongoDB for Developers with Python Transcripts
Chapter: Deploying MongoDB in production (and playing it safe)
Lecture: Concept: Adding authentication to MongoDB
0:01 Now let's see about enabling access control, we're going to connect to the shell like we have been,
0:06 again specifying the extra things like ssl, import and so on, we're going to say use the admin database
0:12 and then we want to create a user, I set the user to pwd and do not forget the roles this is very important.
0:18 Once we've done this, this doesn't magically make authentication work, we have to go over to our Mongo config
0:23 and say security authorization is enabled, then we want to talk to it, we can now pass the port, the, ssl stuff,
0:33 the users, the user name, the password- p password and authentication database is admin, don't forget that, it doesn't work without it.
0:41 At this point, you've basically set up your MongoDB in a safe way the final thing that you might consider,
0:47 and it depends on how you want to run your database and so on, and you might set up a replica set to have failover
0:53 and multi machine redundancy and things like that, that's certainly a next step that you could take
0:59 but it's beyond the scope of this course so check out the docs.
