NoSQL data source support

What all nosql databases does yellowfin supports? Mongo/Couchdb??

Thank you for posting your question on our forum.

Please see the link below for some details on your question.


If, after reading this, you have specific questions, please
send them through.


Thanks for your support.
that's an year old link which says that nosql isn't supported yet. Is this correct?

I've reached out to our Dev team for confirmation on this.

I'll update as soon as I hear anything.

Thank you,



Yellowfin relies on SQL or MDX to run queries against data sources.
This means it cannot natively support connections to databases that do not support one of these 2 languages.

However, if you are able to find a JDBC driver that translates SQL to the required language, you can simply use that JDBC driver in Yellowfin, as it's the driver that does all the translating.

E.g. Yellowfin can connect to Hadoop Hive.

Hope this clarifies things, and please let me know if there was anything else you were after.
