Hello, I am just following this tutorial but after added the motion planning display in RViz I can't outcome the 2nd step : "Within the Motion Planning RViz plugin, connect to the database by pressing the Connect button in the Context tab.".

Shell says this : ros.warehouse_ros_mongo: Unable to connect to the database at ''. If you just created the database, it could take a while for initial setup.

I have sourced my workspace folder, and its src folder contains moveit built from source, as well as moveit_tutorials, panda_moveit_config, warehouse_ros, and warehouse_ros_mongo package folders.

Also where should I search for the source code which is called when the user clicks on "connect" within RViz ? In RViz files or in Moveit ones?

Can you please show us the exact commands you used to start things?

The database is only started if you enable it db:=true.

Indeed I used the one provided : roslaunch panda_moveit_config demo.launch db:=true

I had the same issue, i tried to install mongodb store

sudo apt-get install ros-kinetic-mongodb-store

and the problem solved.

Now, when I launch I get a different error.
