Atlas offers the following resources to manage your Atlas clusters and serverless instances.

The Database Deployments view displays all clusters and serverless instances to which the user belongs.


The Database Deployments page displays.


The Database Deployments page groups clusters and serverless instances under their Atlas project.

To filter the returned list of database deployments:

  • Use the search box. Enter the organization name, project name, or cluster/serverless instance name to limit returned database deployments to specific organizations, projects, or clusters/serverless instances.
  • Use the dropdown menus to limit the returned list using one or more of the following filters:

    Filter Purpose

    Additional configuration options for the database deployment including authentication, backup, and TLS.

    • Auth OFF
    • Backup OFF
    • SSL OFF

To display clusters that have not contacted Atlas in the last 6 months, click Show Inactive Clusters.

Atlas returns the following information for each database deployment:

Name of the database deployment.
MongoDB Version of the database deployment.
Data Size
Size of the database deployment data.
Backup enabled status.
Number of nodes in the database deployment. This only displays for clusters.
SSL enabled status. This displays only for clusters.
Authentication required status. This displays only for clusters.
Number of open alerts. This displays only for clusters.

Through the Database Deployment Detail view, Atlas displays clusters and serverless instances grouped into their Project.

  1. If it is not already displayed, select the organization that contains your desired project from the Organizations menu in the navigation bar.
  2. If it is not already displayed, select your desired project from the Projects menu in the navigation bar.
  3. If the Database Deployments page is not already displayed, click Databases in the sidebar.

The Atlas consoles displays the following for database deployments in the selected project:

  • Metadata:

    Database Deployment Name
    Name of the database deployment.
    Version of MongoDB that the database deployment runs.
    Cluster Tier
    Cluster tiers such as M10, M30, or the like (clusters only).
    Cloud region where Atlas hosts the database deployment.
    Type of structure for the cluster (i.e., Replica Set or Sharded Cluster), and number of nodes in the cluster (clusters only).
    Linked MongoDB Realm App
    Name of the MongoDB Realm application linked to this cluster, if appropriate (clusters only).
  • High-level metrics:

    • Read / write operations per second.
    • Number of open connections to the database deployment.
    • Logical size of database deployment data.
    • Database deployment disk IOPS (Available on M10+ clusters).

Atlas pauses monitoring for these metrics on M0 clusters without connection activity for seven days. Atlas indicates which clusters fell into this state in the Database Deployment Detail view. Atlas limits details displayed for these clusters.

To resume monitoring, make a successful connection to the cluster using:

After you view your database deployments, you can:

Manage your Atlas clusters with cluster-specific options.
Manage your Atlas serverless instances with serverless-specific options.
Manage your Atlas Global Clusters. Atlas Global Clusters require that you define single or multi-region Zones. You can also shard global collections for global writes.
