mongo console find by id

To find a document by its id in the MongoDB console, you can follow these steps:

  1. Open the MongoDB shell by running the command "mongo" in your terminal.

  2. Select the appropriate database using the "use" command, for example: "use mydatabase".

  3. Use the "db.collectionName.find()" command to search for the document by its id. For example: "db.mycollection.find({ _id: ObjectId('documentId') })". Replace "collectionName" with the name of your collection and "documentId" with the actual id of the document you want to find.
