To connect to your federated database instance with the MongoDB Shell, see Connect from the MongoDB Shell.

To connect to your federated database instance with a BI tool, you can use a custom connector with its associated and officially supported BI tool, or a standalone driver to integrate with a BI tool of your choice.

MongoDB supports and regularly updates the following custom Atlas SQL connectors. To ensure a successful connection and support for the full range of Atlas SQL capabilities, use one of the following custom connectors with its associated BI tool:


If you use a standalone driver with a BI tool that MongoDB doesn't officially support, you must test the features of Atlas SQL that you want to use in order to confirm they are supported by that tool.

MongoDB can't guarantee that all BI tools are fully supported.

MongoDB provides the Atlas SQL standalone JDBC and ODBC drivers for experimentation and custom integration with SQL-92 dialect-based third-party BI tools that support a generic ODBC or JDBC driver connection. Use the type of driver that your BI tool specifies:

You can authenticate with SCRAM-SHA-1, SCRAM-SHA-256, MONGODB-X509, and MongoDB Passwordless Authentication with AWS.
