Alternatives to MongoDB

Can dashboard be built to have flexibility of using different database backends like AWS Dynamo or RDBMS like Mysql?

Hi muthusk,

this is not possible, use of MongoDB is a strict requirement.

Worth noticing that it is strict requirement for configuration management using dashboard. But for analytics data you can use any backend supported by Tyk Pump (for example ElasticSearch), or write your own (like Mysql).

Just check on this further. In future, is there a plan to use any other alternative to Mongo DB for tyk dashboard and gateway, like Maria DB/MySQL/AWS Dynamo, etc , similar to how you implemented ES/Others for pump?


It’s a requirement for the dashboard only - and it’s unlikely to move anytime soon.
