Atlas Search is available on all cluster tiers running MongoDB version 4.2 or later.

MongoDB's Atlas Search feature offers fine-grained text indexing to enable advanced search functionality without any additional management required. Atlas Search provides options for several kinds of text analyzers, score-based results ranking, and a rich query language.
