The dropStore command removes a federated database instance store from the federated database instance storage configuration. If existing collections reference the federated database instance store you want to remove, the command fails and returns a list of the dependent collections.

db.runCommand({ dropStore: "<store-name>" })
Parameter
Type
Description
Required?
dropStore
string
Name of the federated database instance store to remove from the federated database instance storage configuration.
yes

The command prints the following output if it succeeds. If the command fails, see Troubleshoot Errors for recommended solutions.

{ "ok" : 1 }

The following example uses the dropStore command to remove the federated database instance store myStore from the federated database instance storage configuration.

use sample
db.runCommand({ dropStore: "myStore" })

The previous command prints the following output:

{ "ok" : 1 }

If the command fails, it returns one of the following errors.

Reason: The specified federated database instance store has dependent collections and can't be removed.

{
"ok" : 0,
"errmsg" : "store has dependent collections: <database.collection>,<database.collection>,<...>",
"code" : 2,
"codeName" : "BadValue"
}

Solution: First drop the dependent collections, then re-run the dropStore command.
