Setup Guide - MongoDB

Follow this setup guide to connect MongoDB to DataChannel.

  • Have a MongoDB database configured and reachable from the DataChannel IPs. Contact support for the list of IP addresses to whitelist incase required.

  • Create a user for DataChannel with SELECT rights on the tables / views you want to pull data from.

  • In case of a heavily utilized production database, it is advisable to connect the read-only replica to pull data from an active MongoDB account with permissions to access data from accounts you’d like to sync. This account needs to be a admin account with delete privileges.

  • You would require MongoDB DB Host, Username, Password & DB Name information access to add new credentials.
