How to Drop all the indexes in a Collection using PyMongo?
Prerequisites: MongoDB and Python
With the help of drop_indexes() method we can drop all the indexes in a Collection. No parameter is passed in the method. Only default index _id can not be deleted. All the Non _id indexes will be the drop by this method. It means we can only drop the index which we have created.
