Common Issues

After connecting your MongoDB Atlas environment to Vanta, Your Multi-Cloud Cluster Database doesn't appear within the Connection Scope.

Currently, We're unable to retrieve those resources from MongoDB Atlas via the API Endpoint [Get all clusters]
Unfortunately, there is no resolution to this issue at the moment, However you can provide manual evidence via Document upload of your Multi-Cloud Cluster alert settings and backups.
