Database Class

Definition

Represents a database in the Azure Cosmos DB account.

public class Database : Microsoft.Azure.Documents.Resource
type Database = class
    inherit Resource
Public Class Database
Inherits Resource
Inheritance

Examples

The example below creates a new Database with an Id property of 'MyDatabase'.

 
using (DocumentClient client = new DocumentClient(new Uri("service endpoint"), "auth key"))
{
    Database db = await client.CreateDatabaseAsync(new Database { Id = "MyDatabase" });
}

The example below creates a collection within this database with OfferThroughput set to 10000.


DocumentCollection coll = await client.CreateDocumentCollectionAsync(db.SelfLink,
    new DocumentCollection { Id = "MyCollection" }, 
    new RequestOptions { OfferThroughput = 10000} );

The example below queries for a Database by Id to retrieve the SelfLink.


using Microsoft.Azure.Documents.Linq;
Database database = client.CreateDatabaseQuery().Where(d => d.Id == "MyDatabase").AsEnumerable().FirstOrDefault();
string databaseLink = database.SelfLink;

The example below deletes the database using its SelfLink property.


await client.DeleteDatabaseAsync(db.SelfLink);

Remarks

Each Azure Cosmos DB database account can have zero or more databases. A database in Azure Cosmos DB is a logical container for document collections and users. Refer to http://azure.microsoft.com/documentation/articles/documentdb-resources/#databases for more details on databases.
