Azure Cosmos DB Mongo Db RoboMongo

This post is about connecting to Azure Cosmos DB emulator from RoboMongo. Azure Cosmos DB is Microsoft’s globally distributed multi-model database. It is superset of Azure Document DB. Due to some challenges, one of our team decided to try some new No SQL databases. One of the option was Document Db. I found it quite good option, since it supports Mongo protocol so existing app can work without much change. So I decided to explore that. First step I downloaded the Document Db emulator, now it is Azure Cosmos DB emulator. Installed and started the emulator, it is opening the Data Explorer web page (https://localhost:8081/_explorer/index.html), which helps to explore the Documents inside the database. Then I tried to connect to the same with Robo Mongo (It is a free Mongo Db client, can be downloaded from here). But is was not working. I was getting some errors. Later I spent some time to find some similar issues, blog post on how to connect from Robo Mongo to Document Db emulator. But I couldn’t find anything useful. After spenting almost a day, I finally figured out the solution. Here is the steps.
