MongoDB Input TLS Connections

Alteryx Server was recently updated to allow TLS-mediated connections to the MongoDB persistence layer. This allowed us to switch off of the embedded MongoDB to a highly-available MongoDB Atlas cluster. To our surprise after the switch, when we went to edit our workflows that make use of the persistence layer's data (Server Usage Report, etc.) to hit the new Atlas cluster, we found that the MongoDB Input tool does not support TLS connections. This absolutely needs to be changed. Based on organizational constraints, Atlas is our only option for a HA persistence layer. We absolutely have to have TLS support for the MongoDB Input tool. There is no other way for us to natively query our server persistence layer in Designer. Please bring the MongoDB Input tool into alignment with the MongoDB connections that are supported by Alteryx Server.

Hey @jmarsh1590 ,

 

While this does not solve your issue - we moved away from the Alteryx Mongo connector just because we needed to do more complex operations; and moved to Python.

However - do agree with your point about the MongoDB input connector having flexibility for different connection types.

Thank you for your post! Our product team is planning to evaluate the technical requirements behind implementing this idea. This can take some time, but once our team can better speak on if or when we could implement this idea, I'll update the idea accordingly.

Alteryx Team - this is a duplicate idea that has been getting a lot of love lately. Could we combine these ideas?
