Python MongoDB Limit

Python MongoDB Limit

Limit the Result

To limit the result in MongoDB, we use the limit() method.

The limit() method takes one parameter, a number defining how many documents to return.

Consider you have a “customers” collection:


{‘_id’: 1, ‘name’: ‘John’, ‘address’: ‘Highway37’}
{‘_id’: 2, ‘name’: ‘Peter’, ‘address’: ‘Lowstreet 27’}
{‘_id’: 3, ‘name’: ‘Amy’, ‘address’: ‘Apple st 652’}
{‘_id’: 4, ‘name’: ‘Hannah’, ‘address’: ‘Mountain 21’}
{‘_id’: 5, ‘name’: ‘Michael’, ‘address’: ‘Valley 345’}
{‘_id’: 6, ‘name’: ‘Sandy’, ‘address’: ‘Ocean blvd 2’}
{‘_id’: 7, ‘name’: ‘Betty’, ‘address’: ‘Green Grass 1’}
{‘_id’: 8, ‘name’: ‘Richard’, ‘address’: ‘Sky st 331’}
{‘_id’: 9, ‘name’: ‘Susan’, ‘address’: ‘One way 98’}
{‘_id’: 10, ‘name’: ‘Vicky’, ‘address’: ‘Yellow Garden 2’}
{‘_id’: 11, ‘name’: ‘Ben’, ‘address’: ‘Park Lane 38’}
{‘_id’: 12, ‘name’: ‘William’, ‘address’: ‘Central st 954’}
{‘_id’: 13, ‘name’: ‘Chuck’, ‘address’: ‘Main Road 989’}
{‘_id’: 14, ‘name’: ‘Viola’, ‘address’: ‘Sideway 1633’}


Limit the result to only return 5 documents:
