Code Block
$ java -server -jar restheart.jar restheart.yml

7.2. MongoDB authentication with just enough permissions 

In the previous examples we used a mongodb user with root role (or clusterAdmin and dbAdminAnyDatabase roles for version 2.4) for the sake of simplicity. This allows RESTHeart to execute any command on any mongodb resource.
