I want to print the value for this JSON document in the mongo shell. Like a simple console output, without creating a new collection or document.

enter image description here

Thanks in advance

For printing the value in MongoDB Shell you have to work with forEach() function. Let us discuss this with an example:

Let's create a collection titled ‘printDocuementValueDemo’ and inside the collection, let's add documents:

> db.printDocuementValueDemo.insertOne({"InstructorName":"John Smith"});

{

   "acknowledged" : true,

   "insertedId" : ObjectId("5cd6804f7924bb85b3f48950")

}

> db.printDocuementValueDemo.insertOne({"InstructorName":"Sam Williams"});

{

   "acknowledged" : true,

   "insertedId" : ObjectId("5cd680577924bb85b3f48951")

}

> db.printDocuementValueDemo.insertOne({"InstructorName":"David Miller"});

{

   "acknowledged" : true,

   "insertedId" : ObjectId("5cd680637924bb85b3f48952")

}

After that read your documents:

> db.printDocuementValueDemo.find().pretty();

The output would be as follows:

{

   "_id" : ObjectId("5cd6804f7924bb85b3f48950"),

   "InstructorName" : "John Smith"

}

{

   "_id" : ObjectId("5cd680577924bb85b3f48951"),

   "InstructorName" : "Sam Williams"

}

{

   "_id" : ObjectId("5cd680637924bb85b3f48952"),

   "InstructorName" : "David Miller"

}

Then for printing, the document refers to the following syntax:

> db.printDocuementValueDemo.find(

   { _id : ObjectId("5cd680577924bb85b3f48951") },

   {InstructorName: 1, _id:0}

).forEach(function(myDocument) {

   print(myDocument.InstructorName);

});

The output for the above code will be:

Sam Williams
