Mongo source connector in alpha stage and future plan

Hi (-:

We are investigating Airbyte to replace a “homemade” ETL script from our OLTP database (Mongo) to Snowflake.

But currently, the Mongo source connector is in the alpha stage, and we can’t seem to find it in the roadmap as well (not in planned or future).

Supporting SaaS connectors is great but I think OLTP databases (Postgres and Mongo) are super critical and are a big pain point. For example, Fivetran could be nice for SaaS sources, but when you consider it for OLTP sources with m-a-n-y rows for a collection/table, their pricing model breaks.

Maybe I am missing something here, but IMHO, OLTP source sync is the most interesting (game-changing) element compared to the big players (Stitch, Fivetran and others…).

Any education on the subject would be much appreciated.

Hey we totally understand the problem. Surely I will put this across with our team. It would be great if you can put forward some cases on what’s the issue with the current Mongo source so that we can ask the team to look into it

We haven’t used the connector, because it’s Alpha.
So we have nothing to report.
I’ll try to emphasize the issue in my opinion.
It’s a priority issue, meaning that a very important source connector is not listed in the roadmap, or seems to be getting any work done on it.

Hey we have a new version of MongoDB where we are working continuously to make it work and stable
