Extract MongoDB Data from Worker Node

Hi Server Community,

 

My org has a main Alteryx server & an additional worker node.

 

Can I extract mongodb data (which I presume is stored in the main Alteryx server VM) directly from the VM where my additional worker node is installed? Is this possible?

 

thank you.

 

regards

Chinee

Extracting data from the Mongo DB instance that is installed with Server is possible from a VM.  You'll need to use the Mongo Input tool under the Connectors palate.  You'll need to provide the host name as well as the Controller token, which your Server Administrator may or may not allow you to have.  Here's some additional info:  https://help.alteryx.com/2019.4/MongoInput.htm.

Welcome.  I have a session at Inspire 2019 on extracting from Mongo:

And I put up some modules in the public Gallery you might be able to model off of if you download them.  See the info in this post:

Cheers!
