The JAR file should be in the directory $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/splunk_app_db_connect/drivers

You should modify the file db_connection_types.conf file in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/splunk_app_db_connect/default to have the details posted by vrmandadi above:

[mongo]
displayName = MongoDB
jdbcDriverClass = mongodb.jdbc.MongoDriver
serviceClass = com.splunk.dbx2.DefaultDBX2JDBC
jdbcUrlFormat = jdbc:mongo://<host>:<port>/<database>

Full installation instructions for MongoDB JDBC driver with Splunk DBConnect version 3 are available.

Have you installed a JDBC driver for MongoDB on your DB Connect server?
