Text Indexes

MongoDB provides text indexes to support text search queries on string content. text indexes can include any field whose value is a string or an array of string elements.

To perform text search queries, you must have a text index on your collection. A collection can only have one text search index, but that index can cover multiple fields.

For example you can run the following in mongosh to allow text search over the name and description fields:

db.stores.createIndex( { name: "text", description: "text" } )

See the Text Indexes section for a full reference on text indexes, including behavior, tokenization, and properties.
