The Flexmonster Connector for MongoDB is a special server-side tool intended to make a work with MongoDB faster and more comfortable. The Connector is easy to set up and use.
To start transferring data from a MongoDB database to Flexmonster, the Connector has to be embedded into a middle-layer server. The server has to accept requests from Flexmonster and pass them to the Connector in a proper way.
Meanwhile, the Connector is responsible for sending requests to your MongoDB database, fetching the data from that database, and passing the data back to the server.
The Connector is based on the custom data source API, so all the calculations are performed on the server-side. Since the received data is already aggregated, there is a reduced load on the browser’s memory. The Connector also prepares your data so it fits the Flexmonster Pivot requirements.
For a quick start in using the Connector, see the following guide:
