Video: How to get started with MongoDB and Grafana

9 Aug, 2022 2 min

MongoDB is one of the most popular NoSQL databases in the world, used by millions of developers to store application metrics from e-commerce transactions to user logins.

The MongoDB Enterprise plugin for Grafana — which is available for users with a Grafana Cloud account or with a Grafana Enterprise license — unlocks all of the data stored in MongoDB as well as diagnostic metrics for monitoring MongoDB itself for visualization, exploration, and alerting. 

Learn how to get started with the MongoDB Enterprise plugin in less than 3 minutes with Grafana Cloud. 

After connecting MongoDB and Grafana Cloud with a few easy clicks, you can follow the video’s step-by-step guide for configuring Grafana and executing a query. (Bonus: The MongoDB plugin provides an editor where you can write or paste your MongoDB queries without making any modifications.)

Once Grafana and MongoDB are configured, you can instantly start building dynamic Grafana dashboards with your data using template variables and a wide variety of visualizations.
