To execute a MongoDB query in a Linux script, you can use the mongo command-line tool provided by MongoDB. Here's how you can do it:

  1. Open a terminal.
  2. Install the MongoDB shell by following the installation instructions appropriate for your Linux distribution.
  3. Create a new script file, for example,, using a text editor.
  4. Add the following lines to the script file, replacing
mongo  --eval "<QUERY>"

  1. Save and close the script file.
  2. Make the script file executable by running the following command in the terminal:
chmod +x

  1. Optionally, move the script file to a directory on your PATH to make it easily accessible:
sudo mv /usr/local/bin/

  1. To execute the MongoDB query, run the script by entering its name in the terminal:

The script will execute the MongoDB query using the mongo shell, and the results will be displayed in the terminal.
