TLS/SSL support with Alteryx Database Connectors

Hello,

 

I had a business case requiring a cost effective and quick storage solution for real time online sourced survey data from customers.  A MongoDB instance would fit the need, so I quickly spun up a cluster on Mongo Atlas.  Atlas was launched by MongoDB in 2016 as a database-as-a-service deployed on AWS.  All instances for Atlas require TLS/SSL to connect.  Currently, the Alteryx MongoDB connector does not support TLS/SSL connections and doesn't work against Atlas.  So, I was left with a breakdown in my plan that would require manual intervention before ingesting data to Alteryx (not ideal).

 

Please consider expanding this functionality on all connectors.  I am building Alteryx out in my agency as a data platform that handles sensitive customer information (name, address, email, etc.).  Most tools I use to connect to secure servers today support this type of connection and should be a priority for Alteryx to resolve. 

 

Thanks,

Mike Schock

I would love to have this support as well.  I also spun up a cluster on MongoDB Atlas hoping to use this platform as our data warehouse and was disappointed to learn that this would not work.

Need TLS/SSL support with Alteryx Database Connectors

In order for installation to be FIPS 140 compliant (Government) we really need this added.

Thanks for the idea and comments. We've started to hear more about this and will continue to evaluate. Please keep commenting and letting us know which specific connectors you most need this for.

 

Best,

 Thanks @AlexP, the main one we need is the MongoDb connector so that we can query our databases hosted on AWS.

Hi All,

 

We don't have any immediate plans for this, but please continue to star this if you need it.

I would like to join my voice to this (I have starred it as well), as we would love to connect to several MongoDB instances with SSL.  Thanks!
