Problem :

I want Import the dummy JSON file into my MongoDB but facing below error.

I am unable to understand the below error and so can not find the suitable "simple English" explanation nowhere to understand it by myself, so if you have any solution please send it to me.

The error in detail as below:

$ mongoimport --jsonArray --collection bank_data /Macintosh HD/Users/alecxe/Downloads/bank_data.json/bank_data.json

2019-12-18T13:23:56.592+1200    error validating settings: only one positional argument is allowed

Tried running the OSX -: Mongod started -: Using the /data/db path and connected to my test "All good" -: but running mongoimport from the separate shell gave below

$ mongo --version MongoDB shell version: 3.2.8

$ mongoimport --jsonArray --collection some_data --file /path/path/data.json

$ mongoimport --jsonArray --collection some_data /path/path/data.json

Solution :

Try it as mentioned below by quoting your path

$ mongoimport --jsonArray --collection bank_data '/Macintosh HD/Users/ alecxe/Downloads/bank_data.json/bank_data.json'  

The error as given below

error validating settings: only one positional argument is allowed

usually comes from the fact that your path contains the space which results in the splitting of it into two separate arguments if you are not guarded it by surrounding quotes.

Also your path is ending with '...bank_data.json/bank_data.json' and not just one 'bank_data.json' this is also wrong.
