Delete a row from mongodb database in azure


I am an azure newbie who has a mongodb database on Azure cloud storage. I am trying to delete a row with a specific value from the Query explorer in Azure, but I keep getting this error. Am I missing something? <a href="https://i.stack.imgur.com/b2Qmk.png" rel="nofollow"><img alt="enter image description here" class="b-lazy" data-src="https://i.stack.imgur.com/b2Qmk.png" data-original="https://i.stack.imgur.com/b2Qmk.png" src="https://etrip.eimg.top/images/2019/05/07/timg.gif" /></a>

delete from users where _id='...' doesnt work neither does delete * from users where _id='' work

this works perfectly even if am doing SQL on a mongodb database while querying <a href="https://i.stack.imgur.com/wGyvj.png" rel="nofollow"><img alt="enter image description here" class="b-lazy" data-src="https://i.stack.imgur.com/wGyvj.png" data-original="https://i.stack.imgur.com/wGyvj.png" src="https://etrip.eimg.top/images/2019/05/07/timg.gif" /></a>


I think you are using Microsoft DocumentDB (not mongoDB). DocumentDB is available on Azure and supports SQL-like queries.

I suggest taking a look at the documentation: <a href="https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/documentdb-sql-query/" rel="nofollow">https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/documentdb-sql-query/</a>

According to the docs INSERT, UPDATE, and DELETE are only available through the REST API and not in the query language.
