      2020-03-05: Pending completion

      • Code complete on Feb 28
      • Complete pending resolution of build failure at merge to master

      2020-02-28: Pushed back 2 weeks

      • Target date pushed to Feb 28
      • In progress: set a connection string as a positional argument
      • In code review: Allow --uri to be used with other connection string options

      2020-02-06: Pushed back 2 weeks

      • Target date pushed to Feb 14, as work was preempted by higher priority items over the last few weeks
      • username option is complete
      • Next up, passing positional arguments to the connection screen

      2020-01-09

      • Estimated end date beginning of Feb. This is tentative, may be pushed back depending on additional work in the form of bugs that may arise in during this timeframe.

      Description

      Atlas provides a mongo shell connection prompt like this:

      # 3.6+
      mongo "mongodb+srv://cluster0-vcvyn.mongodb.net/test" --username <username>
       
      # 3.4 and earlier
      mongo "mongodb://cluster0-shard-00-00-vcvyn.mongodb.net:27017,cluster0-shard-00-01-vcvyn.mongodb.net:27017,cluster0-shard-00-02-vcvyn.mongodb.net:27017/test?replicaSet=Cluster0-shard-0" --ssl --authenticationDatabase admin --username <username> --password <password>
      

      We'd like the tools to support both formats – detecting a URI on the command line without the --uri flag.

      This work will need to address conflicts between the uri option and other parameters like db (see TOOLS-2037 for an example). One possibility could be to keep the legacy URI conflict warnings with the --uri flag (and perhaps deprecate it), but do something more user-friendly if a URI is provided on the command line without --uri (such as allow other command line options to take precedence).
