Removes the user from the current database.

The db.dropUser() method takes the following arguments:

Parameter
Type
Description
username
string
The name of the user to remove from the database.
writeConcern
document
Optional. The level of write concern for the removal operation. The writeConcern document takes the same fields as the getLastError command.

The db.dropUser() method wraps the dropUser command.

Before dropping a user who has the userAdminAnyDatabase role, ensure you have at least another user with user administration privileges.

If run on a replica set, db.dropUser() is executed using majority write concern by default.

You must have the dropUser action on a database to drop a user from that database.

The following db.dropUser() operation drops the reportUser1 user on the products database.

use products
db.dropUser("reportUser1", {w: "majority", wtimeout: 5000})
