Basic Usage

Using the connection instance you may access databases and collections. Most of the MongoDB commands are accessible via yii\mongodb\Collection instance:

$collection = Yii::$app->mongodb->getCollection('customer');
$collection->insert(['name' => 'John Smith', 'status' => 1]);

To perform "find" queries, you should use yii\mongodb\Query:

use yii\mongodb\Query;

$query = new Query;
// compose the query
$query->select(['name', 'status'])
// execute the query
$rows = $query->all();

This extension supports logging and profiling, however log messages does not contain actual text of the performed queries, they contains only a close approximation of it composed on the values which can be extracted from PHP Mongo extension classes. If you need to see actual query text, you should use specific tools for that.
