Docs Menu



Changed in version 4.4: Use in conjunction with cursor.hint() to perform a collection scan to return documents in natural order.

For usage, see Force Collection Scans example in the cursor.hint() reference page.

Starting in MongoDB 4.4, you can specify a $natural sort when running a find operation against a view.
