MongoDB In Ignition

If you want to connect to MongoDB, now you can!

This is a little bit advanced, but can be done by invoking scripting, so I thought I’d share it here. (I post mainly to the Module Developers Forum.) I’ve packaged a simple module and project. Feel free to download, play around, and modify however you need.

It’ll let you easily create MongoDB collections from Ignition datasets (send a dataset to Mongo), and will read those collection back into datasets.

Note: This is intended to be a jumping-off point for your projects if you want to use it. PLEASE review the scripts and modify to your requirements. They’re not too complex.

Also Note: The MongoDB module is built against Ignition 7.5.3, and won’t install on earlier versions.
