Today we are very excited to announce that we have just released MongoChef 4.2.0!
This release brings many improvements and new features you have asked for, for example:
Improved SSH/SSL support
Option to remove a field from matching documents
When you select a field in document and you choose to remove the field, you can now also specify in the ensuing dialog to remove the field only from those fields matching the current query.
Parse “connect-to” database from connection URI
When connecting to the mongo shell, one can pass the shell a connection URI in the following form
which will connect the user (who is defined in database “admin”) directly to the database “my_db”. This concept of course doesn’t directly translate to MongoChef where you see all available databases at once. MongoChef will now parse that connect-to database directly from the URI and add it to the list of manually defined visible databases for the user:
Save binary blob field to file
We have added an option directly to a binary field’s pop-up menu to save the binary blob to file (and to load from a file into the field).
Scan entire collection for all fields for CSV export
When exporting documents to CSV, MongoChef by default scans only a subset of documents (usually the documents currently showing in the query result) for field names to suggest as CSV column names. Due to the schema-less nature of MongoDB, this could miss desired fields that in the past had to then be added manually. Now, MongoChef offers a new option to force a scan of the entire collection – which will continuously update the field name list as they are discovered.
Quick feedback when two compared collections are identical
We have added quick and obvious visual feedback to show the user in case the source and target collection during a comparison analysis were found to be identical.
Wait, there’s more!
