CRUD Operations

CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) operations allow you to work with the data stored in MongoDB.

The CRUD operation documentation is categorized in two sections:

  • Read Operations find and return documents stored within your MongoDB database.

  • Write Operations insert, modify, or delete documents in your MongoDB database.

Some operations combine aspects of read and write operations. See our guide on compound operations to learn more about these hybrid methods.

You can use the Node.js driver to connect and perform CRUD operations for deployments hosted in the following environments:

  • MongoDB Atlas: The fully managed service for MongoDB deployments in the cloud

  • MongoDB Enterprise: The subscription-based, self-managed version of MongoDB

  • MongoDB Community: The source-available, free-to-use, and self-managed version of MongoDB

To learn more about performing CRUD operations in the Atlas UI for deployments hosted in MongoDB Atlas, see Create, View, Update, and Delete Documents.
