JDBC Authentication Plugin

On this page

New in version 2.2.

The MongoDB Connector for BI provides a client-side MySQL authentication plugin for Java that integrates with MySQL’s Connector/J JDBC driver. The mongosql_auth plugin allows a client to authenticate with a BI Connector and MongoDB deployment running with authentication enabled using one of the following authentication mechanisms:



  • The SCRAM-SHA-1 mechanism hashes the passwords in the client plugin; however, all other data is in cleartext. If possible, use with encrypted connections.
  • The PLAIN mechanism sends the password in cleartext. Use encrypted connections with the PLAIN mechanism .

Installing the Plugin

To install the plugin, see Install the JDBC Authentication Plugin.
