MongoDB is a document-oriented NoSQL database, focusing on storing data in flexible documents without a fixed structure. When Forest Admin creates your admin panel for this database, it analyzes a few documents to understand their format. This technique is known as introspection.

Based on introspection, Forest Admin creates the necessary components, including collections, fields, and relationships.

Forest Admin efficiently recognizes nested documents and positions them prominently by organizing them into collections, fields, and relationships. This organization mirrors the structured environment of an SQL database.
