Evaluate one or more expressions using the $or operator in MongoDB. Following is the syntax −

db.yourCollectionName.find({ $or: [{ "yourFieldName": yourValue1 }, { "yourFieldName": yourValue2} ] } ).pretty();

Let us first create a collection with documents −

> db.orOperatorDemo.insertOne({"StudentNames":["John","Carol","Sam"]});
{
   "acknowledged" : true,
   "insertedId" : ObjectId("5cd6b80a6d78f205348bc61b")
}
> db.orOperatorDemo.insertOne({"StudentNames":["Robert","Chris","David"]});
{
   "acknowledged" : true,
   "insertedId" : ObjectId("5cd6b8266d78f205348bc61c")
}
> db.orOperatorDemo.insertOne({"StudentNames":["John"]});
{
   "acknowledged" : true,
   "insertedId" : ObjectId("5cd6b8346d78f205348bc61d")
}

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

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

This will produce the following output −

{
   "_id" : ObjectId("5cd6b80a6d78f205348bc61b"),
   "StudentNames" : [
      "John",
      "Carol",
      "Sam"
   ]
}
{
   "_id" : ObjectId("5cd6b8266d78f205348bc61c"),
   "StudentNames" : [
      "Robert",
      "Chris",
      "David"
   ]
}
{
   "_id" : ObjectId("5cd6b8346d78f205348bc61d"),
   "StudentNames" : [
      "John"
   ]
}

Here is the query to $or operator syntax −

> db.orOperatorDemo.find({ $or: [{ "StudentNames": "Carol" }, { "StudentNames": "John"} ] } ).pretty();

This will produce the following output −

{
   "_id" : ObjectId("5cd6b80a6d78f205348bc61b"),
   "StudentNames" : [
      "John",
      "Carol",
      "Sam"
   ]
}
{
   "_id" : ObjectId("5cd6b8346d78f205348bc61d"),
   "StudentNames" : [
      "John"
   ]
}
