Using MongoImport to bulk upload json data

Hi,

One of the scenarios which comes quite often is to bulk upload data into tables and when it comes to DocumentDB like MongoDB , it’s uploading json data to a collection. Before you execute the command the pre-requisite is that you have installed MongoDB from here .

Once installed , you can find all the executables in the bin folder where MongoDB is installed.

C:\Program Files\MongoDB\Server\3.0\bin

mongo1

one of the executables here is MongoImport , which is used for importing bulk data to a mongodb collection.

Open command prompt, and navigate to the bin folder of your mongodb installation and execute the below command.

/db:test test is the name of my MongoDB database
/collection:docsdocs is the name of the collection inside test db
C:\test\bulk_data.jsonlocation of the json file
