MongoDB – $pullAll Operator
  • Last Updated : 10 May, 2020

MongoDB provides different types of array update operators to update the values of the array fields in the documents and $pullAll operator is one of them. This operator is used to remove all instances of the specified values from an existing array. It is different from $pull operator, $pull operator removes items by specifying a query, whereas $pullAll operator removes items that matches the listed values. You can use this operator with methods like update(), findAndModify(), etc., according to your requirement.

Syntax:

{ $pullAll: { <field1>: [ <value1>, <value2> ... ], ... } }

Here, field can specify with dot notation in embedded/nested documents or an array and if value is an array or a document, then $pullAll operator will remove only those items in the array that match the specified value.

Note: The $pullAll operator will remove items from the array in the same order in which they are specified in the value.

In the following examples, we are working with:



Database: GeeksforGeeks
Collection: contributor
Document: two documents that contain the details of the contributor in the form of field-value pairs.

Removing items from an array using $pullAll operator:

In this example, we are removing items specified in the list, i.e., [“Java”, “C#”, “Python”] from the language field with the help of $pullAll operator.




db.contributor.update({name: "Rohit"},
                      {$pullAll: {language: ["Java", "C#", "Python"]}})

Removing items from an array in the embedded document using $pullAll operator:

In this example, we are removing items specified in the list, i.e., [71, 72] from the personal.semesterMarks field with the help of $pullAll operator.




db.contributor.update({name: "Sumit"},
                      {$pullAll: {"personal.semesterMarks": [71, 72]}})
