How to find minimum value in MongoDB?

MongoDBDatabaseBig Data Analytics

To find the minimum value in MongoDB, you can use sort() along with limit(1). The syntax is as follows −

db.yourCollectionName.find().sort({yourFieldName: 1}).limit(1);

To understand the concept, let us create a collection with the document. The query to create a collection with a document is as follows −

> db.findMinValueDemo.insertOne({"StudentMarks":78});
{
   "acknowledged" : true,
   "insertedId" : ObjectId("5c8f80ea2f684a30fbdfd59f")
}
> db.findMinValueDemo.insertOne({"StudentMarks":69});
{
   "acknowledged" : true,
   "insertedId" : ObjectId("5c8f80f02f684a30fbdfd5a0")
}
> db.findMinValueDemo.insertOne({"StudentMarks":79});
{
   "acknowledged" : true,
   "insertedId" : ObjectId("5c8f80f32f684a30fbdfd5a1")
}
> db.findMinValueDemo.insertOne({"StudentMarks":59});
{
   "acknowledged" : true,
   "insertedId" : ObjectId("5c8f80f82f684a30fbdfd5a2")
}
> db.findMinValueDemo.insertOne({"StudentMarks":91});
{
   "acknowledged" : true,
   "insertedId" : ObjectId("5c8f80fb2f684a30fbdfd5a3")
}

Display all documents from a collection with the help of find() method. The query is as follows −

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

The following is the output −

{ "_id" : ObjectId("5c8f80ea2f684a30fbdfd59f"), "StudentMarks" : 78 }
{ "_id" : ObjectId("5c8f80f02f684a30fbdfd5a0"), "StudentMarks" : 69 }
{ "_id" : ObjectId("5c8f80f32f684a30fbdfd5a1"), "StudentMarks" : 79 }
{ "_id" : ObjectId("5c8f80f82f684a30fbdfd5a2"), "StudentMarks" : 59 }
{ "_id" : ObjectId("5c8f80fb2f684a30fbdfd5a3"), "StudentMarks" : 91 }

Here is the query to find the minimum value in MongoDB −

> db.findMinValueDemo.find().sort({StudentMarks: 1}).limit(1);

The following is the output −

{ "_id" : ObjectId("5c8f80f82f684a30fbdfd5a2"), "StudentMarks" : 59 }
