MongoDB

ToolJet can connect to MongoDB to read and write data.

Manual Connection

Please make sure the host/ip of the database is accessible from your VPC if you have self-hosted ToolJet. If you are using ToolJet cloud, please whitelist our IP.

To establish a manual connection with the MongoDB data source, click on the +Add new data source button located on the query panel or navigate to the Data Sources page from the ToolJet dashboard.

ToolJet requires the following to connect to your MongoDB.

  • Host
  • Port
  • Username
  • Password

It is recommended to create a new MongoDB user so that you can control the access levels of ToolJet.

ToolJet - Mongo connection

Click on 'Test connection' button to verify if the credentials are correct and that the database is accessible to ToolJet server. Click on 'Save' button to save the data source.

Connect Using Connecting String

You can also use a Connection String by switching the method from the dropdown. You will be prompted to enter the details of your MongoDB connection.

The primary piece of information you need here is your MongoDB connection string. The connection string typically looks like this: mongodb+srv://${username}:${password}@${cluster}/{database}.

For example: mongodb+srv://tooljettest:[email protected]/hrms

ToolJet - Mongo connection

Make sure to replace username, password, cluster, and database with your actual MongoDB details. If your MongoDB instance requires additional connection options, you can usually append these options to the connection string.

Querying MongoDB

Click on + button of the query manager at the bottom panel of the editor and select the database added in the previous step as the data source. Select the operation that you want to perform and click 'Save' to save the query.
