We have migrated our Alteryx Server's embedded MongoDB to a MongoDB Atlas cluster. We need to point existing workflows that reference the server's MongoDB to the Atlas cluster. I'm having some difficulty connecting to the cluster from Designer, however.
Has anyone had success connecting to Atlas with the MongoDB Input tool? How did you format the connection parameters? Using version 2020.1.
did you find a way to make this work. I am in a similar situation and wondering if this is possible as i have seen a post stating that MongoDB Input does not support MongoDB Atlas but this was from a while ago with no recent updates.
Hey @DY1 - I had to use python to get connected to Atlas. I’m not sure if there is a plan to update the MongoDB input tool to allow for Atlas connections. The python script I used was provided by Alteryx support in a macro called “Atlas_Connector.yxmc”
We shouldn't have to drop into Python to make this work. MongoDB Atlas has been around for a very long time and it's annoying that Alteryx Designer can't connect to it. I've seen other connectors get integrated faster (Databricks).
