Querying internal array size in MongoDB?

MongoDBDatabaseBig Data Analytics

You can use the $size operator for internal array size in MongoDB. The syntax is as follows:

db.internalArraySizeDemo.aggregate(
   [
      {
         $group: {
            _id:yourObjectIdValue,
            anyFieldName: {$first: {$size: "$yourArrayName" }}
         }
      }
   ]
);

To understand the above syntax, let us create a collection with some documents. The query to create a collection with documents are as follows:

>db.internalArraySizeDemo.insertOne({"EmployeeName":"Mike","EmployeeTechnology":["Jav
a Web Development","Python Web Development"]});
{
   "acknowledged" : true,
   "insertedId" : ObjectId("5c6eff586fd07954a48906b2")
}
> db.internalArraySizeDemo.insertOne({"EmployeeName":"Sam","EmployeeTechnology":["C
with Graphics","Game Development with C++ Language","MatLab"]});
{
   "acknowledged" : true,
   "insertedId" : ObjectId("5c6effcd6fd07954a48906b3")
}

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

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

The following is the output:

{
   "_id" : ObjectId("5c6eff586fd07954a48906b2"),
   "EmployeeName" : "Mike",
   "EmployeeTechnology" : [
      "Java Web Development",
      "Python Web Development"
   ]
}
{
   "_id" : ObjectId("5c6effcd6fd07954a48906b3"),
   "EmployeeName" : "Sam",
   "EmployeeTechnology" : [
      "C with Graphics",
      "Game Development with C++ Language",
      "MatLab"
   ]
}

Here is the query to get the internal array size with the help of $size operator:

> db.internalArraySizeDemo.aggregate(
...    [
...       {
...          $group: {
...             _id:ObjectId("5c6eff586fd07954a48906b2"),
...             EmployeeTechnology_count: {$first: {$size: "$EmployeeTechnology" }}
...          }
...       }
...    ]
... );

The following is the output:

{ "_id" : ObjectId("5c6eff586fd07954a48906b2"), "EmployeeTechnology_count" : 2 }
