bsondump - MongoDB BSON utility


The bsondump converts BSON files into human-readable formats, including JSON. For example,
bsondump is useful for reading the output files generated by mongodump.



--help Returns a basic help and usage text.

--verbose, -v
Increases the amount of internal reporting returned on the command line. Increase
the verbosity with the -v form by including the option multiple times, (e.g.

Returns the version of the bsondump utility.

Validates each BSON object before outputting it in JSON format. By default,
bsondump enables --objcheck by default. For objects with a high degree of
sub-document nesting, --objcheck can have a small impact on performance. You can
set --noobjcheck to disable object checking.

Changed in version 2.4: MongoDB enables --objcheck by default, to prevent any
client from inserting malformed or invalid BSON into a MongoDB database.

New in version 2.4.

Disables the default document validation that bsondump performs on all BSON

--filter '<JSON>'
Limits the documents that bsondump exports to only those documents that match the
JSON document specified as '<JSON>'. Be sure to include the document in single
quotes to avoid interaction with your system's shell environment.

--type <=json|=debug>
Changes the operation of bsondump from outputting "JSON" (the default) to a
debugging format.

The final argument to bsondump is a document containing BSON. This data is
typically generated by mongodump or by MongoDB in a rollback operation.


By default, bsondump outputs data to standard output. To create corresponding JSON files,
you will need to use the shell redirect. See the following command:

bsondump collection.bson > collection.json

Use the following command (at the system shell) to produce debugging output for a BSON

bsondump --type=debug collection.bson
