Connect Tableau with MongoDB via external BI Connector

I’m trying to connect my database to Tableau, installed Connector BI and started the service, but I can’t get the connection. The port has already been released on Azure and the firewall on the machine is disabled, has anyone experienced this problem?

I would first look at the logs generated by the BI Connector. You can also try to use a MySQL Client to connect to the BI Connector directly.

The bigger challenge with deploying your own BI Connector versus using the one in MongoDB Atlas is dealing with certificates. In Atlas you just check a box so if you can use MongoDB Atlas it is much easier.
That said, here is a detailed setup with a self-hosted BI Connector and Tableau.
