How do you compare two fields in MongoDB while performing an operation on one of them?

To compare two fields, use $where in MongoDB. Let us first create a collection with documents −

> db.demo7.insertOne({"FirstName1":"JOHN","FirstName2":"John"});
{
   "acknowledged" : true,
   "insertedId" : ObjectId("5e0ccd1a25ddae1f53b6222f")
}
> db.demo7.insertOne({"FirstName1":"Carol","FirstName2":"Mike"});
{
   "acknowledged" : true,
   "insertedId" : ObjectId("5e0ccd2725ddae1f53b62230")
}
> db.demo7.insertOne({"FirstName1":"bob","FirstName2":"BOB"});
{
   "acknowledged" : true,
   "insertedId" : ObjectId("5e0ccd3225ddae1f53b62231")
}

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

> db.demo7.find();

This will produce the following output −

{ "_id" : ObjectId("5e0ccd1a25ddae1f53b6222f"), "FirstName1" : "JOHN", "FirstName2" : "John" }
{ "_id" : ObjectId("5e0ccd2725ddae1f53b62230"), "FirstName1" : "Carol", "FirstName2" : "Mike" }
{ "_id" : ObjectId("5e0ccd3225ddae1f53b62231"), "FirstName1" : "bob", "FirstName2" : "BOB" }

Here is the query to compare two fields while performing an operation on one of them −

> db.demo7.find({$where: "this.FirstName1.toLowerCase() == this.FirstName2.toLowerCase()"});

This will produce the following output −

{ "_id" : ObjectId("5e0ccd1a25ddae1f53b6222f"), "FirstName1" : "JOHN", "FirstName2" : "John" }
{ "_id" : ObjectId("5e0ccd3225ddae1f53b62231"), "FirstName1" : "bob", "FirstName2" : "BOB" }
