Class MongoDB Manager
Welcome. Here you will create and manage your MongoDB database by logging in with your CIMS/i6 credentials.
All master's students and undergraduates taking i6 courses are granted access to this service.
If you are unable to authenticate below and believe you have a CIMS account,
try reseting your password by visiting our Password Reset tool and logging in with your NYU NetID and password
- Initialize Database: submit your username and password with this button to create your database. If your database already exists, no action will be taken.
- Reset MongoDB Password: MongoDB uses a password that is separate from your CIMS password. This password is used solely for connecting to the database of class-mongodb.cims.nyu.edu. You will receive your password upon database initialization, but if you forget it at any point, you may reset it with this button.
- Database lifespan: Databases created here are intended for use with class work. As such, they will be deleted at the end of every semester following the end of finals
- Number of databases: Each student is allowed one database, and that database name will match your CIMS/i6 username (which is usually the same as your NetID)
- Database quota: Databases are capped at 256 MB. This is a hard limit and exceptions cannot be made. 256 MB allows for approximately 1.2 million documents containing three fields of dummy data.
- Database backups: Databases are backed up nightly to one of our data servers.
