Select and load data from a MongoDB database

Once you have created a connection to a MongoDB database, you can select data and load it into Qlik Sense or QlikView. In Qlik Sense, you load data through the Add data dialog or the Data load editor. In QlikView, you load data through the Edit Script dialog.

Information noteThe SELECT statement does not include a WHERE clause, but one can be added in the Data load editor after the script built automatically in the script panel is inserted there. The SELECT statement for the MongoDB Connector supports the addition of WHERE clause.
