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.
Sample database used:
By default, each collection has the _id index. All collections compulsorily have at least one index. If all indexes are removed, then a new index will be automatically generated. We can see the indexes present by running the following command:
Now, we can run the following code to add a new Index called newIndex to the collection, given that the mongo server is running:
Example 1: Adding an Index to the Collection
Example 2: Deleting the Index from the Collection
