Creating Indexes in Mogodb- ensure Index and get indexes then verify
Many time we get stuck with the query How to Creating Indexes in Mogodb, ensure Index and get indexes then verify?
Here below is the simple answer for this query-
Indexes are used to support efficient and faster performance of queries. Indexes are special data structure that holds a small part of data set in an cinch to track form.
MongoDb supports indexes by using ensureIndex() method.
Basic syntax of ensureIndex() method is as follows:
Above example will output all employees data where employees title will be sorted in ascending order and employees salary will be sorted in descending order.
ensureIndex() method also accepts list of options (which are optional), whose list is given below:
Builds the index in the background so that building an index does not block other database activities. Specify true to build in the background. The default value is false.
Creates a unique index so that the collection will not accept insertion of documents where the index key or keys match an existing value in the index.
Creates a unique index on a field that may have duplicates. MongoDB indexes only the first occurrence of a key and removes all documents from the collection that contain subsequent occurrences of that key. Specify true to create unique index. The default value is false.
The name of the index. If unspecified, MongoDB generates an index name by concatenating the names of the indexed fields and the sort order.
If true, the index only references documents with the specified field. These indexes use less space but behave differently in some situations (particularly sorts). The default value is false.
Specifies a value, in seconds, as a TTL to control how long MongoDB retains documents in this collection.
The index version number. The default index version depends on the version of mongod running when creating the index.
The weight is a number ranging from 1 to 99,999 and denotes the significance of the field relative to the other indexed fields in terms of the score.
For a text index, the language that determines the list of stop words and the rules for the stemmer and tokenizer. The default value is english.
For a text index, specify the name of the field in the document that contains, the language to override the default language. The default value is language.

Above query will output of all indexes available in employees table. eg.
