Hi Team,

As of now users and roles are not supported in Cosmos DB API for MongoDB. This means that all the Applications has to use same credentials with one read-write and one read-only passkey available under connection string page of the account.
Is this a limitation until native RBAC is publicly available in API for Mongo DB (I know that its in private-preview as of now) or is there any workaround available to manipulate different credentials ?
Would really appreciate if anyone can share document if available on same.

Thanks & Regards,
Anoop

    Hi, @Vaikakkara, Anoop Thanks for the ask and for using the Microsoft Q&A platform.
    As we understand the ask here is you want to know if there is a workaround available to manipulate different credentials? correct me if my understanding is wrong.

    RBAC is the API for MongoDB that is available as a public gated preview. if you are interested in trying that then it will address all the issues mentioned.

    Here’s the public doc for this: Configure role-based access control for your Azure Cosmos DB API for MongoDB database (preview) | Microsoft Learn

    Please let me know if this is helpful or tell us more about your query if you are facing any issues.

    Regards
    Geetha
