Authentication With MotorΒΆ

This page describes using Motor with Tornado. Beginning in version 0.5 Motor can also integrate with asyncio instead of Tornado.

To use authentication, you must start mongod with --auth or, for replica sets or sharded clusters, --keyFile. Create an admin user and optionally normal users or read-only users.

To create an authenticated connection use a MongoDB connection URI:

uri = "mongodb://user:pass@localhost:27017/database_name"
client = motor.motor_tornado.MotorClient(uri)

Motor logs in to the server on demand, when you first attempt an operation.
