The MongoDB Connector for Business Intelligence for Atlas (BI Connector) is only available for M10 and larger clusters.

The BI Connector is a powerful tool which provides users SQL-based access to their MongoDB databases. As a result, the BI Connector performs operations which may be CPU and memory intensive. Given the limited hardware resources on M10 and M20 cluster tiers, you may experience performance degradation of the cluster when enabling the BI Connector. If this occurs, upgrade to an M30 or larger cluster or disable the BI Connector.

For more information on the MongoDB Connector for Business Intelligence, see MongoDB Connector for BI Manual.
