Data Management (DMS) is an integrated and visualized database solution that offers data management, structure management, user authorization, security auditing, data trend analysis, data tracking, BI charts, performance optimization, and server management. You can use DMS to connect to a standalone ApsaraDB for MongoDB instance for remote access and online management.

Preparations

Add the IP address of the DMS server (100.104.0.0/16) to the whitelist of the ApsaraDB for MongoDB instance. For more information, see Configure a whitelist for a standalone ApsaraDB for MongoDB instance.

Note Skip this step if you have added the IP address of the DMS server to the whitelist of the ApsaraDB for MongoDB instance.

Procedure

  1. Log on to the ApsaraDB for MongoDB console.
  2. In the upper-left corner of the page, select the resource group and the region of the target instance.
  3. In the left-side navigation pane, click Replica Set Instances.
  4. Find the target instance and click its ID.
  5. In the upper-right corner of the page, click Log On. You are redirected to the Data Management console.
  6. In the Login instance dialog box, configure the parameters.
