$lte

Syntax: { field: { $lte: value } }

$lte selects the documents where the value of the field is less than or equal to (i.e. <=) the specified value.

For most data types, comparison operators only perform comparisons on fields where the BSON type matches the query value's type. MongoDB supports limited cross-BSON comparison through Type Bracketing.

The following examples use the inventory collection. Create the collection:

db.inventory.insertMany( [
{
"item": "nuts", "quantity": 30,
"carrier": { "name": "Shipit", "fee": 3 }
},
{
"item": "bolts", "quantity": 50,
"carrier": { "name": "Shipit", "fee": 4 }
},
{
"item": "washers", "quantity": 10,
"carrier": { "name": "Shipit", "fee": 1 }
}
] )

Consider the following example:

db.inventory.find( { quantity: { $lte: 20 } } )

This query will select all documents in the inventory collection where the quantity field value is less than or equal to 20.

Example output:

{
_id: ObjectId("61ba453ffe687fce2f04241c"),
item: 'washers',
quantity: 10,
carrier: { name: 'Shipit', fee: 1 }
}

The following example sets the price field based on a $lte comparison against a field in an embedded document.

db.inventory.updateMany(
{ "carrier.fee": { $lte: 5 } }, { $set: { price: 9.99 } }
)

Example output:

{
_id: ObjectId("61ba453ffe687fce2f04241a"),
item: 'nuts',
quantity: 30,
carrier: { name: 'Shipit', fee: 3 },
price: 9.99
},
{
_id: ObjectId("61ba453ffe687fce2f04241b"),
item: 'bolts',
quantity: 50,
carrier: { name: 'Shipit', fee: 4 },
price: 9.99
},
{
_id: ObjectId("61ba453ffe687fce2f04241c"),
item: 'washers',
quantity: 10,
carrier: { name: 'Shipit', fee: 1 },
price: 9.99
}

This updateMany() operation searches for an embedded document, carrier, with a subfield named fee. It sets { price: 9.99 } in each document where fee has a value less than or equal to 5.

To set the value of the price field in only the first document where carrier.fee is less than or equal to 5, use updateOne()
