MongoDB

MongoDB is a NoSQL database that uses JSON-like documents with optional schemas. As a Meroxa destination, you can capture events from any source and populate a collection in real-time.

Supported Environments#

The Meroxa Platform has been tested against the following MongoDB versions:

  • 3.4.x
  • 3.6.x
  • 4.0.x
  • 4.2.x

Adding Resource#

To add a MongoDB resource to your Meroxa Resource Catalog, you can run the following command:

meroxa resource add mongo --type mongodb -u "$MONGO_CONNECTION_STRING"

$MONGO_CONNECTION_STRING represents a valid Mongo Connection String.

Destination Configuration#

To configure MongoDB as a destination:

meroxa connector create to-mongo --to mongo --input $STREAM_NAME

The command above creates a new Connector called to-mongo, sets the destination to a resource named mongo and configures the Input Stream.

Configuration Options#

The following configuration is supported for this Connector:

ConfigurationDestination
collectionWhitelist filter for extracting a subset of fields from elastic-search JSON documents. The whitelist filter supports nested fields. To provide multiple fields use ; as separator (e.g. customer;order.qty;order.price).
index.prefixIndices prefix to include in copying.
incrementing.field.nameAn incremental/temporal field such as a timestamp or an incrementing id.
