I’m using the BI Connector with Tableau Online. The Connector is hosted in Atlas so there’s no drdl file that I’m aware of. I created some views in our db which show up in the list of collections. But when I connect from Tableau Online, it displays all of the collections except for the views. Since everything is hosted in Atlas, all I’m seeing is the connection info I use in Tableau Online but not anywhere I can add namespace options for the views. How do I connect to the Mongo Views?
Welcome to MongoDB community!
Views should also be mapped as collections by the BI Connector.
I would check the following things:
- Does the MongoDB user connected to the BI tool has the needed privs to read the views?
- Is the current set sample interval was triggered to remap the new views?
- Are the views producing results? Empty Views are not mapped.
- Do you have less than 4000 collection/views/arrays in total? BI connector limit.
If none of the above is the root of this please open a case with Atlas support.
