$pull objects from multiple array with $in filter

Issue

I have the following user document :

{
   "_id":{
      "$oid":"627cc1add375d47675b8104a"
   },
   "email":"camille.balzac@outlook.fr",
   "username":"camille.balzac",
   "password":"9394516cc9354d3ef1a37a88dfefc364182a80c59a147ba77b240ac78ca5e788",
   "salt":"xooRCeSUh9KVmGH",
   "isteacher":false,
   "instances":[
      {
         "instanceid":"i-0c7a14f4bebaxxxxx",
         "identifier":"t1u4sm2abyc3rdkhevrgs0tg5592idjp",
         "teacherid":{
            "$oid":"627cc1a9d375d47675b81049"
         }
      },
      {
         "instanceid":"i-0e4c61434a85xxxxx",
         "identifier":"pqqloehk4oeiy2ofh4d7tsn6j281wnbe",
         "teacherid":{
            "$oid":"627cc1a9d375d47675b81049"
         }
      }
   ]
}

I’m trying to build a go function that would delete all instances entities whose id is in the slice that’s passed as an argument (instancesIds).
For now it looks like this :

func DeleteInstancesById(instancesIds []string) error {
    res, err := usersCollection.UpdateOne(
        context.TODO(),
        bson.M{},
        bson.M{
            "$pull": bson.M{
                "instances": bson.M{
                    "instanceid": bson.M{
                        "$in": instancesIds,
                    },
                },
            },
        },
    )
}

For example, that means if I call the function like this :

DeleteInstancesById([]string{"i-0c7a14f4bebaxxxxx"})

It shoud delete all the instances whose id is "i-0c7a14f4bebaxxxxx".

The problem is that no update are made despite my numerous tries. Any idea ?

Solution

Ok I really don’t understand why but I managed to make the function work by replacing the UpdateOne function by the UpdateMany function.

This was pure luck and any explaination would be greatly appreciated.
