Create a System DSN¶
Serverless instances are in preview and do not support this feature at this time. To learn more, see Serverless Instance Limitations.
The following steps describe how to create a system Data Source Name (DSN) for the BI Connector for Atlas. A DSN is a saved configuration which describes a database connection to be used by an ODBC driver. Once the DSN is created, you can configure a wide range of SQL clients and BI tools to use the DSN and import data from MongoDB.
Before creating a DSN, you should:
- Download and install the MongoDB ODBC Driver for BI Connector for your platform.
