Whether you’re a seasoned professional or a rough-around the edges rookie, querying in MongoDB has never been easier. Studio 3T offers the following ways to query MongoDB:
- via SQL
- the mongo Shell
- through the Aggregation Editor
- and lastly, the Visual Query Builder
Make use of the Visual Query Builder or write your query in SQL. Create an aggregate query in the Aggregation Editor or use the revamped IntelliShell to navigate through your data!
Visual Query Builder – Drag, Drop, and Query
The Visual Query Builder is the easiest way to begin querying.
If you’re new to MongoDB, use the Visual Query Builder to drag and drop fields, so you can run your very first query even without knowing MongoDB query syntax.
And even if you’re an experienced MongoDB user, you can still use the Visual Query Builder to query arrays or build more complex queries.
SQL Query – The Familiarity of SQL in MongoDB
If you’re a SQL expert transitioning to MongoDB, you’ll feel right at home with the SQL Query feature.
Write the same familiar SQL inner and left joins and expressions like
GROUP BY – and much more – to query MongoDB.
IntelliShell – The Responsive mongo Shell
Aggregation Editor – The MongoDB Aggregation Query Builder
Instead of writing complex aggregation queries in the mongo shell, the Aggregation Editor lets you build them one stage at a time for easier debugging.
