  2. Bi connector - store schema information

    We have the BI connector installed/configured via OPS manager on one of our deployments.
    When we have to restart the node, the BI connector takes a long time to start as it has to rebuild the schema.
    Hence we would like to file an enhancement request to be able to store the schema information and then retrieve it again after a restart.

  3. Allow separate whitelist for Atlas BI Connector

    Currently, whitelisting is only possible at the Project level. We would like to allow whitelisting of the BI connector instance separately from the project.

    The Users/IPs that connect to mongo are completely different for BI connector vs the actual DB

  4. Support Prepared Statements in BI Connector

    The Power Query Editor in Microsoft leverages a prepared statement for query/filtering.

    Error message:
    This command is not supported in the prepared statement protocol yet

    This is a feature request to support prepared statements in the mongosqld BI Connector service.

  6. BI Connector username and password in yaml file

    Currently BI Connector has username and password in clear. this presents problem in terms of security. BI connector has to have a way to encrypt the password and then we store the encrypted password which BI connector can decrypt and use it. it can be any standard encrypt decrypt algorithm but the secret key can be generated by the person using this.

  9. Enable CSFLE decryption in BI Connector

    Enable CSFLE decryption in BI Connector, in order to provide encrypted fields in MongoDB decrypted for ODBC exposition.
    CSFLE is described here: https://www.mongodb.com/docs/manual/core/security-client-side-encryption/.
    For exemple, CSFLE would then be an option triggerable at BI Connector Launch, that should come with KMS link or keyring if enabled.

  12. Deploy MongoDB BI Connector product using the MongoDB Kubernetes Operator

    We would like to have the ability to deploy and run MongoDB BI connector as a container under MongoDB Kubernetes Operator. Currently there is no support on such deployments.

  13. Build a version of the BI Connector that is compatible with Alpine

    We deploy the BI Connector within a container that runs the Alpine OS (so it's small and clean).
    However Alpine is bundled with MULS and not the GLIBC libs which means the BI Connector cannot run in that container.

    We have managed to get around this by using gcompat to layer in glibc. But that is not ideal for us as it adds complexity and rather defeats the purpose of using Alpine.

    You build several versions of the BI Connector binary, are you able to build an Alpine compatible version as well?

  14. Two tiered model for authentication

    The BI Connector facilitates large scale (1000s) of "personal data marts" by acting as a controlled go-between enduser tools like Tableau and a "main" data collection. It is not practical or even desirable to have pass-thru authentication of all these users to the backend mongodb database. Instead, the BI connector could use a special collection in a mongodb instance (not necessarily the target!) to hold SHA(password), name, and YAML equivalent. When started, the mongosqld would verify command line inputs of SHA(password) and name and context, etc. and if OK, would exec an appropriately password-protected endpoint at 3307 with the config…

  15. Allow per-field length declaration for varchar and char types in BI Connector

    Usually in defining schemas for SQL databases, you can specify a max length for the size of a char or varchar column. It'd be nice to have the ability to do that in a schema that's passed to the mongosqld BI Connector process.

    The only option now is to specify a max varchar size that applies to all varchar fields. It'd be nice to be able to define this on a per field basis.

    This is an issue for a customer I'm working with because of the way their BI tool allocates memory for temporary objects created when bridging the…

  16. Atlas BI Connector Connection Timeout options

    Default connection timeouts using the BI Connector in mongo atlas are limited to 30 seconds. Which can be limiting when running longer queries. By exposing the maxTimeMs and related connection parameters in the Atlas web interface, users could increase the timeout for longer running queries.

  17. Provide an alternative sampling technique for views in MongoBI Connector

    As stated in the docs (https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/reference/operator/aggregation/sample/#behavior), the $sample stage will perform a full COLLSCAN if some criteria won't be met. The problem is that no view (https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/core/views/) will ever meet these, as the $sample won't be the first aggregation stage.

    My proposal is to implement additional, $skip+$limit based sampling.

  18. Re-sample only part of the MongoBI Connector schema

    It'd be great if we could run "FLUSH SAMPLE collectionName". It's rarely the case that a lot of collections have changed at once and such a "light re-sample" might be a good alternative.

  19. Implement error handling in MongoBI Connector

    Right now, if the $sample query (used to create the DRDL schema) fails, it'll re-run the query once again, forever. The only place when the error is accessible is in the "Profiler" tab of a given node. In our case - and I believe it's common - that it was a secondary node, which "Profiler" is far less accessible than the one for the primary node.

    We learned it the hard way, as our cluster was silently maxing out one CPU core for over a week. After a lot of debugging, it turned out that one of our views has…

  20. Make BI Connector for Atlas pricing clear upfront

    From this page https://docs.atlas.mongodb.com/bi-connection/ it appears that the BI Connector for Atlas is available if I have an M10 or larger cluster. I upgraded to an M10 cluster to get the BI connector only to discover that if I enable the BI connector, it charges me additional costs. I could not find these additional BI connector prices detailed anywhere on your website except for in my account after I upgraded to the M10 cluster. And even these pricing details are not clear:

    BI Connector
    $1.47/day for sustained monthly usage
    pricing for M10
    or $3.84/day, up to $45.00/month maximum
