At present there is only support for RHEL7, which is effectively out of date. This would support more migrations to RHEL8.1 vote
We have a MongoDB Sharded Cluster host thousands of collections. The schema file for bi connector is quite large. Every time we run a new qu
Current BI Connector behaviour is that it will do a listCollections command after an existing connection to BIC has been idle for 1-2 minutes. For databases with thousands of collections, this will take several minutes to complete. Afte rthe connection to BIC has been idle for a few minutes, the connection from BIC to MongoDB is dropped and when a new connection is created, the listCollecion command is called again. This overhead is unnecessary.
Request to have an option to keep the connection alive or some form of connection pooling mechanism so that listCollection will not be called over and…1 vote
The new Certified MongoDB Atlas Connector for Power BI seems to work great for Power BI Desktop, but does not work in Power BI Service as a dataflow and gives the error "An exception occurred: The given data source kind is not supported. Data source kind: MongoDBAtlasODBC. "2 votes
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?1 vote
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…1 vote
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.11 votes
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…1 vote
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
maxTimeMsand related connection parameters in the Atlas web interface, users could increase the timeout for longer running queries.1 vote
As stated in the docs (https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/reference/operator/aggregation/sample/#behavior), the
$samplestage will perform a full
COLLSCANif 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
$samplewon't be the first aggregation stage.
My proposal is to implement additional,
$limitbased sampling.2 votes
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.2 votes
Right now, if the
$samplequery (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…2 votes
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.6 votes
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:
$1.47/day for sustained monthly usage
pricing for M10
or $3.84/day, up to $45.00/month maximum

The Power Query Editor in Microsoft leverages a prepared statement for query/filtering.
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.7 votes
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.10 votes
Can't fetch data on MongoDB ODBC via BI connector. Test connections are successful but couldn't fetch the data from database servers, only getting 'information_schema' and 'mysql' as by default databases2 votes

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.2 votes
In Atlas the is no way to see the BI connector logs, so, the request is to be able to see the Current schema creation/update status or even better, be able to see the log.6 votes
