Using Robomongo as the Admin UI for Sitecore MongoDB’s

Posted 02/23/2015 by Akshay Sura

There are several MongoDB Admin UI tools out there, some are free and some are paid. One of them stands out as being clean, free and easy to use and that one is Robomongo.

To find a list of MongoDB management tools, please visit MongoDB site, Admin UIs page. Some of the tools such as Fang for Mongo and Opricot have been abandoned.

You can download Robomongo from their website. Setup is a breeze. The UI gives you the ability to connect to different Mongo instances.

robo mongo

new connection

Once connected, you can use the UI to traverse through the collections and the data stored in them. Additionally you can also run db commands against the collections and display results in three different formats (hierarchy, table view and text view). Apart from the features mentioned it has the ability to perform all admin tasks such as clearing data, get db statistics, repair/drop db, insert/update/delete records, etc.



This tools makes it easy to manage MongoDB installs. If you have any questions or comments, please do get in touch with me.
