db.getMongo()

Important
mongosh Method

This page documents a mongosh method. This is not the documentation for a language-specific driver such as Node.js.

For MongoDB API drivers, refer to the language-specific MongoDB driver documentation.

For the legacy mongo shell documentation, refer to the documentation for the corresponding MongoDB Server release:

db.getMongo()
Returns:The current database connection.

db.getMongo() runs when the shell initiates. Use this command to test that mongosh has a connection to the proper database instance.

Note

The legacy mongo shell has a sub-command, db.getMongo().setSecondaryOk(), which is not available in mongosh. In mongosh, use Mongo.setReadPref() instead.
