Are mongodb ids unique ?

The uniqueness constraint for _id (ObjectID) is per collection and _id (ObjectID) has to be unique in a collection, so YES! - One and the same ObjectID can occur once per collection.

This is happening you would have to manually insert duplicate ObjectID.

You can quickly verify this _id (ObjectID) by inserting two documents with the same _id (ObjectID) in two different collections.

For example, you can do it with

var id="_id"; docs = {...};  docs[id] = value;
