MongoDB query to get a specific number of items

To get a specific number of items, use $slice operator in MongoDB. Let us create a collection with documents − > db.demo48.insertOne({"Name":["David","Chris","Sam","Mike","Carol"]}); { "acknowledged" : true, "insertedId" : ObjectId("5e270491cfb11e5c34d89901") } Display all documents from a collection with the help of find() method − > db.demo48.find(); This will produce the following output − { "_id" : ObjectId("5e270491cfb11e5c34d89901"), "Name" : [ "David", "Chris", "Sam", "Mike", "Carol" ] } Following is the query to get only 2 items − > db.demo48.find({},{Name:{$slice: 2}});

This will produce the following output −

{ "_id" : ObjectId("5e270491cfb11e5c34d89901"), "Name" : [ "David", "Chris" ] }
