Tip

Starting in version 3.2, MongoDB also provides the db.collection.bulkWrite() method for performing bulk write operations.

Bulk.find.remove()

Starting in mongosh 0.12.2, Bulk.find.remove() is an alias for Bulk.find.delete().

In new code, use Bulk.find.delete() instead of Bulk.find.remove().

Create the music collection:

db.music.insertMany( [
{ artist: "DOA", genre: "punk" },
{ artist: "Rick Astley", genre: "pop" },
{ artist: "Black Flag", genre: "punk" },
{ artist: "Justin Bieber", genre: "pop" }
] )

The following example:

  • Initializes a Bulk() operations builder.
  • Searches for the genre pop.
  • Deletes pop music from the collection.
var bulk = db.music.initializeOrderedBulkOp();
bulk.find( { "genre": "pop" } ).remove();
bulk.execute()
