Authentication

MongoDB uses API keys for authentication. When you connect your MongoDB account, Pipedream securely stores the keys so you can easily authenticate to MongoDB APIs in both code and no-code steps.

Before you connect to your Mongo database from Pipedream, please make sure your database is accessible from the public internet. You may need to add a firewall rule allowing connections from 0.0.0.0/0.

Then, enter the details of your Mongo host / database below.
