View managed database logs

I'm having a problem authenticating with my managed MongoDB replica set. I'm able to connect via Compass using the same URL.

I'd like to know exactly what's going on here. With the exception of using Mongoose from node and passing the tlsCAFile as a method option (vs Compass directing setting it in the URL), the connection URL is the same.

connection error: o [MongoServerError]: Authentication failed.
    at S.onMessage (/app/index.bundle.js:2:1187936)
    at l.<anonymous> (/app/index.bundle.js:2:1185889)
    at l.emit (node:events:527:28)
    at p (/app/index.bundle.js:2:1204561)
    at l._write (/app/index.bundle.js:2:1203281)
    at writeOrBuffer (node:internal/streams/writable:390:12)
    at _write (node:internal/streams/writable:331:10)
    at Writable.write (node:internal/streams/writable:335:10)
    at TLSSocket.ondata (node:internal/streams/readable:766:22)
    at TLSSocket.emit (node:events:527:28) {
  operationTime: new Timestamp({ t: 1659916117, i: 1 }),
  ok: 0,
  code: 18,
  codeName: 'AuthenticationFailed',

If I can view the managed logs, perhaps I can get a better understanding of whats going on.

Looks like I had to create the database before attempting to connect.

Details, details ;-)
