Hi all,

I need to connect to my Alteryx Server's underlying Mongo Database - is there an easy way to do this using only Alteryx tools (no custom python)?

 

many thanks

@SeanAdams ,

 

using your mongo password (not admin) you can create a workflow that reads from the appropriate tables.  This workflow can only run on the target server.  Then output your data to your desired destination. 

cheers,
