MongoDB setup

  • This is needed only if you are running the SuperTokens core yourself.
  • We support only session management with MongoDB. Login support will be added in the future.

1) Connect SuperTokens to your database 🔌#

docker run \
-p 3567:3567 \
-e MONGODB_CONNECTION_URI="mongodb://root:root@" \

2) Test the connection 🤞#

To test, start SuperTokens and run the following query in your database


If you see at least one row, it means that the connection has been successfully completed! 🥳🎉
