  • Delete Multiple Documents


Deleting documents is not permitted in MongoDB Compass Readonly Edition.

Select the appropriate tab based on whether you are viewing your documents in List, JSON, or Table view:

Once you confirm, Compass deletes the document from the collection.

You can use the bulk delete operations workflow to delete multiple documents in Compass. For details, see Delete Multiple Documents.


You can also use the db.collection.deleteMany() method in the embedded MongoDB Shell to delete multiple documents in a single operation.
