How to hide _id from Aggregation?

MongoDBDatabaseBig Data Analytics

To hide _id from aggregation, use the below syntax −

db.yourCollectionName.aggregate(
   {$project : {
      _id : 0 ,
      yourIncludeFieldName:1,
      yourIncludeFieldName:1
   }}
).pretty();

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

> db.hideidDemo.insertOne({"UserName":"Larry","UserAge":23,"UserCountryName":"US"});
{
   "acknowledged" : true,
   "insertedId" : ObjectId("5c92b02336de59bd9de06392")
}
> db.hideidDemo.insertOne({"UserName":"Chris","UserAge":21,"UserCountryName":"AUS"});
{
   "acknowledged" : true,
   "insertedId" : ObjectId("5c92b03036de59bd9de06393")
}
> db.hideidDemo.insertOne({"UserName":"Robert","UserAge":26,"UserCountryName":"UK"});
{
   "acknowledged" : true,
   "insertedId" : ObjectId("5c92b04036de59bd9de06394")
}

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

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

The following is the output −

{
   "_id" : ObjectId("5c92b02336de59bd9de06392"),
   "UserName" : "Larry",
   "UserAge" : 23,
   "UserCountryName" : "US"
}
{
   "_id" : ObjectId("5c92b03036de59bd9de06393"),
   "UserName" : "Chris",
   "UserAge" : 21,
   "UserCountryName" : "AUS"
}
{
   "_id" : ObjectId("5c92b04036de59bd9de06394"),
   "UserName" : "Robert",
   "UserAge" : 26,
   "UserCountryName" : "UK"
}

Here is the query to hide _id from aggregation −

> db.hideidDemo.aggregate(
   ... {$project : {
      ... _id : 0 ,
      ... UserName:1,
      ... UserCountryName:1
   ... }}
... ).pretty();

The following is the output −

{ "UserName" : "Larry", "UserCountryName" : "US" }
{ "UserName" : "Chris", "UserCountryName" : "AUS" }
{ "UserName" : "Robert", "UserCountryName" : "UK" }
