MongoDB - Insert

On this Page

Snap type:

Write

Description:

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.

Prerequisites:

[None]

Support and limitations:
  • Works in Ultra Task Pipelines if batch size is set to 1.
  • 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.
Account: 

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.

Views:
InputThis Snap has exactly one document input view. The input document will be inserted into the database.
Output

This Snap has no output view.

This Snap has at most on document output view.

ErrorThis Snap has at most one document error view and produces zero or more documents in the view.

Settings

Label


Required. The name for the Snap. You can modify this to be more specific, especially if you have more than one of the same Snap in your pipeline.
Database name

The database that the collection is defined in. If not specified, then the MongoDB account database will be used.

Example: assets
Default value: [None] 

Collection name



Required. MongoDB collection name to execute insert on.

Example: users
Default value: [None]

Batch Size

Required. Number of documents to be inserted at a time.

Example: 10
Default value:  1

Pass through

If selected, the input document will be passed through to the output views under the key 'original'. The document will be passed to the Parameter output view, and it will also be passed to the Result Set output view if there is output sent from this view.

Default value:  Selected

Snap Execution

Select one of the three modes in which the Snap executes. Available options are:

  • Validate & Execute: Performs limited execution of the Snap, and generates a data preview during Pipeline validation. Subsequently, performs full execution of the Snap (unlimited records) during Pipeline runtime.
  • Execute only: Performs full execution of the Snap during Pipeline execution without generating preview data.
  • Disabled: Disables the Snap and all Snaps that are downstream from it.


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.  

Example 


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:

Fixes an issue in the MongoDB accounts to connect to Atlas Free Tier and Shared Cluster database using the Use cursor timeout check box in the MongoDB cursor properties. If selected, this option enables the server to close a cursor automatically after a period of inactivity. For the existing accounts that does not have this field, the value for this check box returns false, which is backward compatible.
