Tines Fuels the No-code API Economy by Integrating With MongoDB’s New Atlas Data API

Written by Conor O'Neill

Whilst the announcement of new APIs is always of interest to us in Tines, very rarely do they have the impact that last week's MongoDB Atlas Data API announcement did.

MongoDB has been the go-to database of choice for modern developers for the past decade. With the launch of their Data API, it will now be the same for low-code and no-code users everywhere. Giving non-developers the full power of MongoDB, via simple HTTP requests, opens up a whole world of opportunities for those users.

The exponential growth of the API Economy bypassed many Low-Code and No-Code users until they discovered the Tines approach to integration and automation. Whilst incumbent vendors continue to offer a set of brittle, native-code connectors to a limited number of tools, Tines embraces the fundamental building blocks of the open web to deliver rapid integrations to everything.

Within minutes of the announcement, we were successfully inserting, querying, and modifying data in a cloud-hosted MongoDB Atlas instance from inside a Tines Story. Shortly after that, we had added all of the API calls to our catalog of ~2000 Action Templates.

This means that all Tines users, including free Community Edition users, can now drag-and-drop MongoDB Data API Actions directly into their Stories and be interacting with their databases within minutes.

One of our main motivators for introducing the Atlas Data API was to better enable and integrate with Low-Code environments like Tines. With this fully-managed, REST-like API, developers can quickly access data from their backend in any language, without the need for drivers. It's yet another step towards getting rid of complexity, automating infrastructure and making developers' lives easier. Tines and the MongoDB Atlas Data API are a great match here and we love the work the team has done to create a close integration in the two weeks since launch. We can't wait to see what they'll achieve with MongoDB and the Atlas Data API.

As the first no-code platform to integrate with MongoDB like this, our users can now run complex queries and aggregation pipelines against MongoDB instances of any scale.

If you want to try it for yourself, simply sign-up for an always-free Tines Community Edition Account, and start interacting with your Atlas instance.
