Starting in version 3.2, MongoDB also provides the db.collection.bulkWrite() method for performing bulk write operations.



New in version 2.6.

Adds a single document update operation to a bulk operations list.

Use the Bulk.find() method to specify the condition that determines which document to update. The Bulk.find.updateOne() method limits the update to a single document. To update multiple documents, see Bulk.find.update().

Bulk.find.updateOne() accepts the following parameter:

Parameter Type Description
update document

An update document that specifies the modifications to make. Specify the modifications with update operator expressions.

The sum of the associated <query> document from the Bulk.find() and the update document must be less than or equal to the maximum BSON document size.

To specify an upsert: true for this operation, see Bulk.find.upsert(). To replace a document wholesale, see Bulk.find.replaceOne().


If the <update> document contains only update operator expressions, as in:

  $set: { status: "D" },
  $inc: { points: 2 }

Then, Bulk.find.updateOne() updates only the corresponding fields, status and points, in the document.


The following example initializes a Bulk() operations builder for the items collection, and adds various updateOne operations to the list of operations.

var bulk = db.items.initializeUnorderedBulkOp();
bulk.find( { status: "D" } ).updateOne( { $set: { status: "I", points: "0" } } );
