View Documents

On this page

  • Expand Embedded Objects and Arrays
  • Copy Documents to Clipboard
  • Encrypted Fields

The Documents tab provides three ways to access documents:

List View
The default document view. Documents are shown as individual members of a list. In this view you can easily expand embedded objects and arrays.
JSON View (New in Compass 1.20)
Documents are shown as properly-formatted JSON objects. In this view Compass uses extended JSON to display the data types of fields where appropriate.
Table View
Shows documents as rows of a table, with document fields shown in the table columns. With this view, you can more easily see which documents contain specific field values.

Use the View buttons to select which view you would like to use:
