What is the error you are getting?

Thanks for replying…

My guess is you have either not added the applicable MONGO_URI environemnt variable and value to the Secrets tab or your mongo user does not have the correct permissions (read/write).

When I add my personal mongo uri to your code, the challenge passes.

I have enable it the read/write permissions!

Please…send your URI without your password!

This is how i connected my mongoose

Your connection string most likely doesn’t contain the correct name and password.

Make sure you did not include the <> part of the password placeholder you get with the connection string.


So you are saying that I should remove the greater than and lesser than sign from my password?

Yes, they are not part of the password. They are just in the placeholder to denote the location of the password.

Thanks so much!
It worked
