There are multiple methods to migrate your data into an Atlas Cluster, and the best method for import depends on your source cluster configuration.

  • If you are migrating a live replica set, we recommend LiveMigrate 

  • If you are migrating data from a CSV, we recommend mongoimport 

  • If you are migrating data from a BSON backup file, we recommend mongorestore 

  • If you are migrating data from a sharded cluster, we recommend using mongodump  (if some downtime is acceptable).

To get sample commands for any of these migration options, check your Atlas cluster's Command Line Tools. These can be found by clicking the [...] button when viewing your cluster.
