    sathya priya

      Hi,

       

      Iam trying to connect to the mongodb using Tableau using the Mongodb connector for BI(2.4.1)

      Tableau version is 10.1.2

       

      Mongo Db Without authentication works fine

      Steps followed

      1. Start mongod

           mongod --dbpath d:/data1

      2. Start mongosqld

           mongosqld

      3. Connect to the MongoDb from tableau using the mysql db connector.

       

      MongoDb with authentication does not work

      Steps Followed

       

      1. Start mongod

      mongod --dbpath d:/data1 --auth

      2. Start mongosqld

      mongosqld --auth  --mongo-username xxxx  --mongo-password xxx --mongo-authenticationSource admin

       

      3.  Connect to the MongoDb from tableau using the mysql db connector by providing the username and password

           I get the following error.

           [MySQL][ODBC 5.3(w) Driver]ssl is required when using cleartext authentication

       

      Please let me know how to resolve the issue
