$skip (aggregation)


Skips over the specified number of documents that pass through the $skip in the pipeline before passing all of the remaining input.

$skip takes a single numeric (positive whole number) value as a parameter. Once the operation has skipped the specified number of documents, it passes all the remaining documents along the pipeline without alteration. Consider the following example:

    { $skip : 5 }

This operation skips the first 5 documents passed to it by the pipeline. $skip has no effect on the content of the documents it passes along the pipeline.
