MongoDB 3.x - Create Users

MongoDB 3 has a different way to create users compared to version 2.x. Now we need to use createUser rather than addUser.

Enter the console

mongo  

Create a user on a database

use [database name]
db.createUser(
   {
     user: "[username]",
     pwd: "[plaintext password]",
     roles: [ ]
   }
)
