Get at least one match in list querying with MongoDB?

MongoDBDatabaseBig Data Analytics

Use $in operator to get at least one match. Let us first create a collection with documents −

> db.atleastOneMatchDemo.insertOne({"StudentFavouriteSubject":["MySQL","MongoDB"]});
{
   "acknowledged" : true,
   "insertedId" : ObjectId("5cd2db5db64f4b851c3a13ce")
}
> db.atleastOneMatchDemo.insertOne({"StudentFavouriteSubject":["Java","C","MongoDB"]});
{
   "acknowledged" : true,
   "insertedId" : ObjectId("5cd2db71b64f4b851c3a13cf")
}
> db.atleastOneMatchDemo.insertOne({"StudentFavouriteSubject":["Python","C++","SQL Server"]});
{
   "acknowledged" : true,
   "insertedId" : ObjectId("5cd2db87b64f4b851c3a13d0")
}
>db.atleastOneMatchDemo.insertOne({"StudentFavouriteSubject":["Ruby","Javascript","C#","MySQL"]});
{
   "acknowledged" : true,
   "insertedId" : ObjectId("5cd2dba9b64f4b851c3a13d1")
}

Following is the query to display all documents from a collection with the help of find() method −

> db.atleastOneMatchDemo.find().pretty();

This will produce the following output −

{
   "_id" : ObjectId("5cd2db5db64f4b851c3a13ce"),
   "StudentFavouriteSubject" : [
      "MySQL",
      "MongoDB"
   ]
}
{
   "_id" : ObjectId("5cd2db71b64f4b851c3a13cf"),
   "StudentFavouriteSubject" : [
      "Java",
      "C",
      "MongoDB"
   ]
}
{
   "_id" : ObjectId("5cd2db87b64f4b851c3a13d0"),
   "StudentFavouriteSubject" : [
      "Python",
      "C++",
      "SQL Server"
   ]
}
{
   "_id" : ObjectId("5cd2dba9b64f4b851c3a13d1"),
   "StudentFavouriteSubject" : [
      "Ruby",
      "Javascript",
      "C#",
      "MySQL"
   ]
}

Following is the query to get at least one match −

>db.atleastOneMatchDemo.find({"StudentFavouriteSubject":{"$in":["MongoDB","MySQL"]}}).pretty();

This will produce the following output −

{
   "_id" : ObjectId("5cd2db5db64f4b851c3a13ce"),
   "StudentFavouriteSubject" : [
      "MySQL",
      "MongoDB"
   ]
}
{
   "_id" : ObjectId("5cd2db71b64f4b851c3a13cf"),
   "StudentFavouriteSubject" : [
      "Java",
      "C",
      "MongoDB"
   ]
}
{
   "_id" : ObjectId("5cd2dba9b64f4b851c3a13d1"),
   "StudentFavouriteSubject" : [
      "Ruby",
      "Javascript",
      "C#",
      "MySQL"
   ]
}
