CRUD is a short form of Create, Read, Update and Delete. These are the basic operations to perform with the database system. To interact with a database, we used crud operations. CRUD is used for anything related to databases and database systems. Software, Web Development can not be imagined without these operations nowadays. The CRUD also appears in the discussion of REST APIs. In HTTP, the GET, PUT and DELETE methods are crud operations as they can manipulate the states of target resources. For Database, we are showing this operation with MongoDB, which is a NoSQL database system.

Create Operation

Create or insert operations add new documents to a collection. If the collection does not exist, insert operations will create a new collection in the database.
MongoDB provides some methods to insert data in the database
