The mongodump tool seems not to support the option --excludeCollection=someCollection when not specifying the --db someDb option. We would like to dump just all databases without explicitly specifying them but exclude certain collections.

Failed: bad option: --db is required when --excludeCollection is specified

Is there another way to exclude certain collections?

Maybe adding a query file with --queryFile is an option, according to the docs it's not necessary to specify the --collection as with --query. But I couldn't find out how you write a query to do that.

We are using MongoDB 3.6.12.
