Today we’re excited to announce the general availability of the MongoDB Atlas Data API. The Data API is a serverless, secure API that brings the ease of HTTPS-based data access to the forefront of the Atlas developer’s experience.
Traditionally, connecting to a database or integrating data into apps comes with a lot of operational burdens, such as provisioning infrastructure or scaling. The Data API offers a new, fully managed way to build data-centric apps and services on top of Atlas. Now Atlas developers can simply think of their data in terms of an API.
Since we introduced the Data API in preview in November 2021, Atlas customers have been adopting it for a variety of use cases. For example, some customers are using it to connect to IoT environments where MongoDB drivers aren’t supported. Other customers are using the Data API as a way to quickly build a POC. Many organizations are using the Data API to integrate Atlas data with other cloud services, such as AWS Lambda, Microsoft Power Apps, or Apigee and edge-based web services such as Vercel and Cloudflare.
Penny Software, a cloud-based procure-to-pay startup in EMEA, is already using the Data API in multiple parts of their application. “The Atlas Data API has been instrumental in our efforts to thin out our backend application,” CTO Mohamad Ibrahim says. "It has helped the team reach a new level of productivity."
New features and functionalities with GA
In addition to being production-ready, the Data API now supports new layers of configurable data permissioning and security, including:
New authentication methods: We’ve added support for authentication methods, such as JWT authentication and email/password.
Role-based access control: Configure rules for user roles that control read and write access via the API.
IP Access List: Only allow client requests from the enabled entries in the IP access list.
Custom endpoints: Define additional API routes—including the request method, the URL, and the logic—for additional configuration flexibility.
Get started with the Atlas Data API
If you’re ready to start building your next application with MongoDB Atlas and the Data API, getting started is easy—choose the cluster you’d like to connect to and generate an API key. That’s all it takes to set up and start sending requests to the API.
Working Together: MongoDB's Partner of the Year Awards
Organizations face more pressure than ever to modernize, to innovate, and to become more data-driven. Whether it's AstraZeneca doing next-generation genome sequencing to develop drugs to fight cancer and other diseases, Toyota connecting more than 100,000 warehouse vehicles with integrated telematics to reshape industrialization, or Forbes developing new ways to create and deploy content, many of the world's top companies have chosen to modernize with MongoDB. Today, more than 35,000 customers trust the MongoDB Atlas data platform with their most critical workloads. But we don’t do it alone. MongoDB's partner ecosystem has scaled to every vertical, industry, and geography, delivering MongoDB to tens of thousands of customers. MongoDB partners play many roles in the ecosystem, from extending MongoDB's developer data platform with complementary functionality to building new solutions on MongoDB to offering expertise to implement and modernize databases. Now, we are pleased to announce the 2022 MongoDB Partners of the Year.

永豐銀行打破資料束縛 以MongoDB Enterprise Advanced優化客戶服務體驗
朝向華人金融第一品牌邁進 永豐銀行持續擴大服務範疇 隨著全球進入數位化金融時代，消費者已逐漸習慣透過行動銀行、網路銀行等辦理轉帳、投資等相關業務，也讓實體分行辦理業務的比例大幅降低。而長達3年的疫情衝擊，更讓消費者對金融業者的線上服務依賴度日增，所以近幾年金融產業都加快推出創新服務的速度，全力打造最佳消費者體驗，以便能在競爭日趨激烈的環境中提升競爭力。 隸屬永豐金控集團旗下的永豐銀行，在財富管理有豐富專業知識與經驗，致力為客戶提供專業、個性化的財富管理解決方案，透過基金、海外債及美股多元投資工具積極打造滿足高資產客戶的平台。此外，該銀行亦積極在不斷變化市場中，努力確保客戶的投資組合穩健增長，期盼能實現預先設定的財務目標，也因此多次榮獲銀行業界「最佳客戶滿意獎」的肯定。 永豐銀行專業副理楊文淵說：「永豐銀行以綿密的營業網路、高度創新的商品組合，致力為客戶提供最佳的金融服務，實踐『翻轉金融，共創美好生活。Together, a better life. 』企業願景，為提供客戶靈活、完整的金融整體解決方案，朝向華人金融第一品牌目標邁進。MongoDB Enterprise Advanced能讓我們釋放資料的潛力，為用戶提供更佳的使用者體驗。」 挑戰 傳統交易資料查詢限制多 仰賴NoSQL突破限制 面對競爭激烈的臺灣金融市場，致力打造友善金融服務的永豐銀行，全力運用創新科技建構貼近客戶的日常生活，如近期推出的小蜜豐平台或首創建置掌靜脈辨識系統的ATM等，主打能為用戶提供線上到線下的完整體驗。該公司以虛實整合（Smooth）、流程智能化（Smart）與服務個人化（Sweet）的3S核心為起點，加上積極響應「綠色金融3.0」及「信託2.0」等政策，期盼以多元服務協助企業減碳且逐步邁向淨零目標、提升產業鏈價值，共同推動臺灣成為永續家園。 儘管永豐銀行連續三年獲得Forbes雜誌評比「年度全球最佳銀行」（World’s Best Banks）肯定，然而並沒有因此自滿，更特別將IT部門分派到各業務單位之中，持續尋找任何能優化的系統與服務。團隊發現現行系統只能讓客戶在線上查詢6個月內的交易資料，無法滿足實務上的需求。因此，必須透過引進NoSQL資料庫方式，打破傳統關連式資料庫的限制，為客戶提供更全面的資料查詢服務。 楊文淵指出，「因應金融法規要求，無論是客戶的銀行或信用卡等交易紀錄，我們都會完整保留下來。只是受限於關聯性資料庫的限制，資料庫都是採取以年為單位進行切割。為了避免用戶查詢歷史交易的資料量過大，導致系統主機資源被大量佔用，目前幾乎每家銀行僅提供在線上查詢1年內的資料，每次最多查詢6個月。我們認為既然資料完整被保存下來，那應該要尋找可打破查詢限制的方法，而NoSQL資料庫自然是最佳方案。根據銀行法規，我們尚且不能將交易資料放在公有雲端平台上，而能提供資料加密功能的MongoDB Enterprise Advanced，自然是我們的最佳選擇。」 解決方案 將創意轉為可行方案 儘管理論上引進NoSQL資料庫可降低大量資料查詢負擔，但仍然必須經過實際驗證才可證明想法可行與否。在MongoDB 顧問團隊協助下，小規模POC驗證順利完成。在確認原本構想可行之後，MongoDB 顧問團隊也隨即安排2天教育訓練課程，讓永豐銀行團隊能在最短時間內熟悉MongoDB資料庫的運作和啟動專案。 除了完整技術支援服務之外，MongoDB Enterprise Advanced也支援身份驗證、存取控制、加密等安全性功能。使用AES256-CBC加密模式，可保護MongoDB資料庫的安全，避免發生資料外洩事件，也同時符合金管會的法規要求。 其次，產品內建功能強大的Ops Manager ，管理人員可藉此加快部署、備份MongoDB速度，同時也可完整監控資料庫的健康狀況，免去傳統手動處理的繁瑣步驟，大幅降低維運的工作負擔。 楊文淵指出，由於銀行業是受到高度監管的產業，因此相關法令規範非常嚴謹。資料庫本身若沒有完整的安全功能，如身份驗證、加密等，基本上絕對不能使用在對外服務之中。綜合技術支援服務、安全功能等因素，也促成永豐銀行引進MongoDB Enterprise Advanced。尤其具備完整管理功能的Ops Manager，則讓團隊大幅降低維運的工作負擔，對永豐銀行來說幫助非常大。 在MongoDB顧問團隊協助下，永豐銀行大約用了6個月的時間進行開發，並在沒有更改動系統架構狀況下，加裝一台負責資料提取、轉換、載入的ETL（extract、transform、load）主機 ，可自動將銀行核心系統、信用卡系統上的客戶交易資料，傳送到MongoDB主機上大幅降低資料轉移的時間，以及系統維運人員的負擔。 另外專案負責人楊文淵提也到，此次計畫不止透過MongoDB彈性的資料格式以及擴充功能來降低原來ODS (Operational Data Store) 系統的負擔，更透過一系列資料運算價值的功能來提升行動銀行的使用者體驗，做到獲客之外還有留客，加深客戶與永豐銀行的互動經驗，於8月正式推出永豐銀行智慧收支帳本服務。總共包括六大功能: 歷史交易一目瞭然、創新業界整合帳戶卡戶明細、搜尋與篩選功能、交易明細編輯功能、交易明細自動分類、特定交易明細排除功能，後續也將推出更多個人化等智慧理財服務，透過服務創新與資料加值深度經營與客戶間的關係。 展望未來 以 MongoDB Enterprise Advanced為核心 持續提升資料價值 目前永豐銀行是臺灣金融市場中，唯一可在線上提供客戶查詢超過10年帳戶卡戶交易紀錄的業者。此項獨步市場的服務，有助永豐銀行提升優勢，以爭取更多新客戶。 為提供更優質的服務，永豐銀行計劃擴大MongoDB Enterprise Advanced的應用範疇，如透過收集與分析用戶的消費行為，作為後續推動行銷服務的參考等，全力朝向華人第一品牌銀行的目標邁進。 「MongoDB Enterprise Advanced的強大資料整合與分析功能，讓我們順利打破傳統關聯資料庫的限制，為客戶提供全新的服務項目，更為公司的長遠發展奠定穩健基礎。未來，我們會繼續與 MongoDB緊密合作，讓永豐銀行的服務能量持續攀升。 」 永豐銀行專業副理楊文淵
