Match element in array of MongoDB?

MongoDBDatabaseBig Data Analytics

You can use $or operator along with limit(1) to match element in array. Let us first create a collection with documents −

> db.matchElementInArrayDemo.insertOne(
...   {
...      "StudentName" : "Chris" ,
...      "StudentOtherDetails" :
...      [
...         {"StudentCountryName" : "US" , "StudentSkills" : "MongoDB"},
...         {"StudentCountryName" : "UK" , "StudentSkills" : "Java"}
...       ]
...   }
... );
{
   "acknowledged" : true,
   "insertedId" : ObjectId("5cd423282cba06f46efe9ee2")
}
> db.matchElementInArrayDemo.insertOne(
...   {
...      "StudentName" : "Chris" ,
...      "StudentOtherDetails" :
...      [
...         {"StudentCountryName" : "AUS" , "StudentSkills" : "PHP"},
...         {"StudentCountryName" : "US" , "StudentSkills" : "MongoDB"}
...      ]
...   }
... );
{
   "acknowledged" : true,
   "insertedId" : ObjectId("5cd423412cba06f46efe9ee3")
}

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

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

This will produce the following output −

{
   "_id" : ObjectId("5cd423282cba06f46efe9ee2"),
   "StudentName" : "Chris",
   "StudentOtherDetails" : [
      {
         "StudentCountryName" : "US",
         "StudentSkills" : "MongoDB"
      },
      {
         "StudentCountryName" : "UK",
         "StudentSkills" : "Java"
      }
   ]
}
{
   "_id" : ObjectId("5cd423412cba06f46efe9ee3"),
   "StudentName" : "Chris",
   "StudentOtherDetails" : [
      {
         "StudentCountryName" : "AUS",
         "StudentSkills" : "PHP"
      },
      {
         "StudentCountryName" : "US",
         "StudentSkills" : "MongoDB"
      }
   ]
}

Here is the query to match element in array of MongoDB −

> db.matchElementInArrayDemo.find( { $or : [ {"StudentOtherDetails.StudentCountryName": "US" } ,{"StudentOtherDetails.StudentSkills": "MongoDB" } ] } ).limit(1);

This will produce the following output −

{ "_id" : ObjectId("5cd423282cba06f46efe9ee2"), "StudentName" : "Chris", "StudentOtherDetails" : [ { "StudentCountryName" : "US", "StudentSkills" : "MongoDB" }, { "StudentCountryName" : "UK", "StudentSkills" : "Java" } ] }
