  • Example
PlanCache.clearPlansByQuery( <query>, <projection>, <sort> )

Clears the cached query plans for the specified query shape.

Important

mongosh Method

This page documents a mongosh method. This is not the documentation for database commands or language-specific drivers, such as Node.js.

For the database command, see the planCacheClear command.

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:

mongo shell v4.4

The method is only available from the plan cache object of a specific collection; i.e.

db.collection.getPlanCache().clearPlansByQuery( <query>, <projection>, <sort> )

The PlanCache.clearPlansByQuery() method accepts the following parameters:

Parameter
Type
Description
query
document
The query predicate of the query shape. Only the structure of the predicate, including the field names, are significant to the shape; the values in the query predicate are insignificant.
projection
document
Optional. The projection associated with the query shape. Required if specifying the sort parameter.
sort
document
Optional. The sort associated with the query shape.

To see the query shapes for which cached query plans exist, see List Query Shapes.

On systems running with authorization, a user must have access that includes the planCacheWrite action.

If a collection orders has the following query shape:

{
"query" : { "qty" : { "$gt" : 10 } },
"sort" : { "ord_date" : 1 },
"projection" : { },
"queryHash" : "9AAD95BE"
}

The following operation removes the query plan cached for the shape:

db.orders.getPlanCache().clearPlansByQuery(
{ "qty" : { "$gt" : 10 } },
{ },
{ "ord_date" : 1 }
)
