Realm Application Security

Developer Access

Every MongoDB Realm application is associated with a specific MongoDB Atlas organization and project. Realm determines the developer access permissions for a given MongoDB Cloud user based on their assigned project roles in the project that contains an app.

The following table describes the access permissions associated with a given project role:

Project Role Access Permissions
Project Owner Full read-write access for all Realm apps associated with the project.
Project Read Only Read-only access for all Realm apps associated with the project.


For more information about adding users and teams to Atlas, see Atlas Users and Teams.

Network Security

MongoDB Realm uses TLS 1.2 to secure all network requests to and from your application, including apps that connect from a Realm SDK as well as queries and operations on a linked MongoDB Atlas data source <linked cluster>. The TLS certificate is pre-defined and cannot be customized.
