New in version 5.0.

During a resharding operation, you can abort the operation with the abortReshardCollection command.

The command has the following syntax:

abortReshardCollection: "<database>.<collection>"

You can abort a resharding operation at any point until the commit phase. If the resharding operation has reached the commit phase before you run the abortReshardCollection command, the command returns an error.

The mongosh provides a wrapper method sh.abortReshardCollection().

The following example aborts a running resharding operation on the sales.orders collection:

abortReshardCollection: "sales.orders"
