MongoDB


You can use the MongoDB connector from the CData Sync application to capture data from MongoDB and move it to any supported destination. To do so, you need to add the connector, authenticate to the connector, and complete your connection.

Establish a Connection

To allow Sync to use data from MongoDB, you first must establish a connection to MongoDB. Follow these steps to connect MongoDB to your Sync account:

  1. Open the Connections page of the Sync dashboard.

  2. Click Add Connection to open the Select Connectors page.

  3. Click the Sources tab and locate the MongoDB row.

  4. Click the Configure Connection icon at the end of that row. If you do not see the Configure Connection icon, you need to add the connector according to the instructions in Connections.

  5. Enter connection settings on the Settings tab:

    • Connection Name - Enter a connection name of your choice.

    • Server - Enter the name or address of the server on which your MongoDB instance runs.

    • Port - Enter the port for the MongoDB database. The default port value is 27017.

    • Database - Enter the name of the MongoDB database that you want to read from and write to.

    • User - Enter the username that you use to authenticate to the MongoDB account.

    • Password - Enter the password that you use to authenticate to the Mongo account.

  6. Click Create & Test to create the connection.

  7. Define advanced connection settings on the Advanced tab. (In most cases, though, you should not need these settings.)
