MongoDB connections overview

Use a MongoDB connection to access a MongoDB table.
Use a MongoDB connection to read data from or write data to collections in a MongoDB Atlas database. Use a MongoDB connection to import MongoDB documents, preview data, and run mappings. When you create a MongoDB connection, you define the connection attributes that Data Integration uses to connect to the MongoDB database.
