Using a MongoDB Connection - AWS Glue

Using a MongoDB Connection

After creating a connection for MongoDB, you can use this connection in your ETL job. You create a table in the AWS Glue Data Catalog and specify the MongoDB connection for the connection attribute of the table. The connection url, username and password are stored in the MongoDB connection. Other options can be specified in the job script as additional options. The other options can include:

  • "database": (Required) The MongoDB database to read from.

  • "collection": (Required) The MongoDB collection to read from.

  • "ssl": (Optional) If true, then AWS Glue initiates an SSL connection. The default value is false.

  • "ssl.domain_match": (Optional) If true and ssl is true, then AWS Glue performs a domain match check. The default value is true.

  • "batchSize": (Optional): The number of documents to return per batch, used within the cursor of internal batches.

  • "partitioner": (Optional): The class name of the partitioner for reading input data from MongoDB. The connector provides the following partitioners:

    • MongoDefaultPartitioner (default)

    • MongoSamplePartitioner (Requires MongoDB 3.2 or later)

    • MongoShardedPartitioner

    • MongoSplitVectorPartitioner

    • MongoPaginateByCountPartitioner

    • MongoPaginateBySizePartitioner

  • "partitionerOptions": (Optional): Options for the designated partitioner. The following options are supported for each partitioner:

    • MongoSamplePartitionerpartitionKey, partitionSizeMB, and samplesPerPartition

    • MongoShardedPartitionershardkey

    • MongoSplitVectorPartitionerpartitionKey and partitionSizeMB

    • MongoPaginateByCountPartitionerpartitionKey and numberOfPartitions

    • MongoPaginateBySizePartitionerpartitionKey and partitionSizeMB

The following examples demonstrate how to get a DynamicFrame from the catalog source.

glue_context.create_dynamic_frame_from_catalog( database = nameSpace, table_name = tableName, additional_options = {"database":"database_name", "collection":"collection_name"})
val resultFrame: DynamicFrame = glueContext.getCatalogSource( database = nameSpace, tableName = tableName, additionalOptions = JsonOptions(Map("database" -> DATABASE_NAME, "collection" -> COLLECTION_NAME)) ).getDynamicFrame()
