Docs Home → MongoDB Kafka Connector
This section focuses on the MongoDB Kafka source connector. The source connector is a Kafka Connect connector that reads data from MongoDB and writes data to Apache Kafka.
The source connector works by opening a single change stream with MongoDB and sending data from that change stream to Kafka Connect. Your source connector maintains its change stream for the duration of its runtime, and your connector closes its change stream when you stop it.
To learn about configuration options for your source connector, see the Configuration Properties section.
To view examples of source connector configurations, see the Usage Examples section.
To learn how features of the source connector work and how to configure them, see the Fundamentals section.
