What happened to MongoChef?

We have renamed MongoChef to Studio 3T.

Studio 3T is becoming more than a simple GUI. It is now a mature product which has become the most popular commercial MongoDB client. We needed a bigger, roomier name to do justice to the growing capacity of the studio with each new release and this new name is Studio 3T. Visit this page to know more.

Which edition is right for me?

Different users have different needs, so we offer 3 tiers of Studio 3T. If you’re unsure which version is best for you, take a look at the detailed feature comparison chart.


A license to use Studio 3T in a commercial environment after the trial period has ended.

This is a perpetual license which also includes 1 year of free updates. After 1 year, in order to continue receiving free updates, a new license would have to be purchased. A user can choose also to continue to use their current version with their license for as long as they want.

Licenses can be purchased in our online shop and are delivered electronically via email. After you place your order, you’ll receive an email containing your invoice, and another email with your license key. You can then paste this license key into your Studio 3T installation to unlock it.

Yes, we offer the following support packages for commercial customers:

  • Priority Support
    • Priority response time (1 business day)
    • Telephone, VOIP, and email support
  • Complimentary Support
    • Standard response time

Both of these options are available for purchase in our online store together with the purchase of any of our Studio 3T editions.

No, a separate license is not needed. Our licenses are per-user licenses rather than per-machine licenses. That means you may use your license on as many of your machines and VMs in parallel, across all supported OSs, as you wish.

The free personal, non-commercial license can only be used for non-commercial tasks (e.g. hobby projects, education, academic projects, non-paid-for open-source development, etc).

If you use Studio 3T for commercial work, you need a commercial license. As a rule of thumb, if you receive money for the work for which you use Studio 3T, be it directly via a salary or a consulting fee, or indirectly via (current or potential or future) revenue from your software, you are a commercial user.

A commercial license for Studio 3T is a perpetual license, with one year of free updates. That means you can use your license without time restriction. The license also allows you to use any release of Studio 3T that was available when the license was purchased, as well as any future releases (bug fixes, enhancements, new features, etc.) for 12 months from the date of purchase. After those 12 months, you can continue to use the version you have forever, or you can choose to renew your license at any time for another 12 months to continue getting updates. By renewing annually, you help us continue to innovate and add new features to the product.

When you decide to renew, we offer a 20% renewal discount off the current price. All you have to do is contact us at and provide the OrderId of your previous purchase. We will be happy to send you the 20% voucher.

Of course! Please contact with your Order Id and we’ll get everything sorted for you.
