The Charts Settings link appears in the sidebar of the Charts UI. All users can access this page. The sections you see depend on the Atlas roles you have.


Only users with the Project Owner can see this section on the Charts Settings page.

The Usage panel of the Charts Settings page shows the data usage of your MongoDB Charts instance over the current month.

The panel displays the following metrics:

Total Data Usage
Total data usage in GB that your Charts instance has consumed over the current month.
Free Tier Remaining
Amount of data in GB that your Charts instance can still use this month for free. If you exceed this amount, your Charts instance starts incurring charges.
Days Remaining
Days remaining in the current month, after which the usage cycle resets.

MongoDB provides a free 1 GB of data transfers per month. Nearly all Charts use cases should fall within this 1 GB free tier. For more information on MongoDB Charts pricing and sample pricing scenarios, see Charts on Atlas Pricing.

You can add a new sample dashboard even if there is an existing sample dashboard in your Charts project. This can be useful if you have made changes to a previously-created sample dashboard and want a fresh copy.


Charts verifies that the sample dashboard has been added successfully.

The Embedding Authentication Providers panel lists the providers Charts can use to authenticate users who access embedded charts.

Charts requires a token from one of the providers you configure to render authenticated charts embedded with the SDK.

For more information about embedding authentication providers, see Configure Embedding Authentication Providers.


Only users with the Project Owner can see this section on the Charts Settings page.


Embedding keys are deprecated and will be removed in a future release. Use Embedding Authentication Providers and the Embedding SDK instead.

Embedding keys are necessary for generating and verifying digital signatures of charts embedded using the Verified Signature mode.

To generate a new embedding key, click the Generate New Key button on the right side of the page.


If you generate a new key, any previous keys become invalid. Ensure that all the existing embedded charts that use the old key are updated to use the new key.
