Snap type:



This Snap executes a MongoDB insert command. Input documents will be inserted into the database. DateTime objects will be converted to UTC time zone by MongoDB, so the original timezone will be lost when inserting the object.



Support and limitations:Ultra pipelines: .Spark mode: Not supported in Spark mode
  • .
  • If you have a number in Decimal128 data type, the Snap inserts the number as a 64-bit floating-point value instead of a 128-bit floating-point value. As a result of this limitation, you may lose precision for values whose representation
  • requires a 128-bit floating-point value.

This Snap uses account references created on the Accounts page of SnapLogic Manager to handle access to this endpoint. See MongoDB Account for information on setting up this type of account.

The upstream schema suggest is only supported if the defined collection provides data. MongoDB does not provide a metadata API to describe the collection, so the SnapLogic platform looks at the data and derives the schema from it.  


In this example, the documents are inserted into a collection using the MongoDB Insert Snap. The documents are passed using the upstream JSON Generator Snap and the Mapper Snap respectively.


The JSON Generator Snap passes the documents to be inserted into the MongoDB collection.

The Mapper Snap maps the input documents to the database collection.

The MongoDB Insert Snap inserts the documents into the collection 'test collection'.


The successful execution of the pipeline displays the below output preview:
