Logical

Name Description
$or Joins query clauses with a logical OR returns all documents that match the conditions of either clause.
$and Joins query clauses with a logical AND returns all documents that match the conditions of both clauses.
$not Inverts the effect of a query expression and returns documents that do not match the query expression.

Element

Name Description

Evaluation

Name Description
$mod Performs a modulo operation on the value of a field and selects documents with a specified result.
$regex Selects documents where values match a specified regular expression.
$text Performs text search.
$where Matches documents that satisfy a JavaScript expression.

Geospatial

Name Description
$geoWithin Selects geometries within a bounding GeoJSON geometry. The 2dsphere and 2d indexes support $geoWithin.
$geoIntersects Selects geometries that intersect with a GeoJSON geometry. The 2dsphere index supports $geoIntersects.
$near Returns geospatial objects in proximity to a point. Requires a geospatial index. The 2dsphere and 2d indexes support $near.
$nearSphere Returns geospatial objects in proximity to a point on a sphere. Requires a geospatial index. The 2dsphere and 2d indexes support $nearSphere.

Array

Name Description
$all Matches arrays that contain all elements specified in the query.
$elemMatch Selects documents if element in the array field matches all the specified $elemMatch conditions.
$size Selects documents if the array field is a specified size.

Bitwise

Name Description
$bitsAllSet Matches numeric or binary values in which a set of bit positions all have a value of 1.
$bitsAnySet Matches numeric or binary values in which any bit from a set of bit positions has a value of 1.
$bitsAllClear Matches numeric or binary values in which a set of bit positions all have a value of 0.
$bitsAnyClear Matches numeric or binary values in which any bit from a set of bit positions has a value of 0.

Comments

Name Description
$comment Adds a comment to a query predicate.

Projection Operators

Name Description
$ Projects the first element in an array that matches the query condition.
