Introduction

A MongoDB connection is configured via the MongoDB connector to establish access to an account on the MongoDB server. Once a connection is established, you can configure one or more MongoDB activities associated with that connection to use as a source or target within an operation.

Creating or Editing a MongoDB Connection

From the design canvas, open the Connectivity tab of the design component palette:

Connectivity tab

To configure a new MongoDB connection, within the Connectors filter, click the MongoDB connector block:

Connectivity tab

To configure an existing MongoDB connection, within the Endpoints filter, double-click the MongoDB connection block:

Connectivity tab

This will open a configuration screen for the MongoDB connection, covered next.

Configuring a MongoDB Connection

Configuration of a MongoDB connection includes these fields:

Connectivity tab

TIP: Fields with a variable icon Variable icon support using global variables, project variables, and Jitterbit variables. Begin typing an open square bracket [ into the field or click the variable icon to display existing variables to choose from.

  • Endpoint Name: Enter a name to use to identify the MongoDB connection. The name must be unique for each MongoDB connection and must not contain forward slashes (/) or colons (:).

  • Username: Enter the MongoDB username. See MongoDB Registration.

  • Password: Enter the MongoDB password. See MongoDB Registration.

  • Host: Enter the MongoDB host of the MongoDB cluster. See MongoDB Registration.

  • Database: Enter the MongoDB database. See MongoDB Registration.

  • Test: Click this button to verify the connection. The server will check only that the specified user can make a connection.

  • Save Changes: Click this button to save and close the connection configuration.

  • Discard Changes: After making changes to a new or existing configuration, click Discard Changes to close the configuration without saving. A message will ask you to confirm that you want to discard changes.

  • Delete: After opening an existing connection configuration, click Delete to permanently delete the connection from the project and close the configuration (see Component Dependencies, Deletion, and Removal). A message will ask you to confirm that you want to delete the connection.

Next Steps

After configuring a MongoDB connection, you can configure one or more MongoDB activities associated with that connection to use as a source or target within an operation. For more information, see these pages:

  • Query Activity: Retrieves data from a MongoDB connection and is used as a source in an operation.

  • Insert Activity: Inserts new data into a MongoDB connection and is used as a target in an operation.

  • Update Activity: Updates data from a MongoDB connection and is used as a target in an operation.

  • Delete Activity: Deletes data from a MongoDB connection and is used as a target in an operation.
