Hello everybody! Hope you are doing well.

exports.createAtlasUserWithEmail = async function(email) {

const realmApp = context.services.get('mongodb-atlas');

// Find the document with the specified email address

const user = await usersCollection.findOne({ username: email });

if (user) {

try {

// Create an Atlas user using the email address

const atlasUser = await realmApp.emailPasswordAuth.registerUser({ email, password: 'testtest' });

// Return the created Atlas user

return atlasUser;

`throw new Error(
Error creating Atlas user: ${error.message}

} else {
`throw new Error(
User not found with the specified email address: ${email}
