      Description

      I'm trying to restore an archive, and mongorestore keeps running into an error that it's "not allowed to do action [listCollections] on [mydb.]"

      I don't want it to list collections. I've specified exactly what collection to restore:

      Output

      $ mongorestore --uri=$MONGO_URL --archive=somefile.mongodump --gzip -d mydb -c mycol
      2020-06-12T18:46:45.000-0700 the --db and --collection args should only be used when restoring from a BSON file. Other uses are deprecated and will not exist in the future; use --nsInclude instead
