Examples

var collectionSpec = new DocumentCollection { Id = "Collection with unique keys", UniqueKeyPolicy = new UniqueKeyPolicy { UniqueKeys = new Collection<UniqueKey> { // pair </name/first, name/last> is unique. new UniqueKey { Paths = new Collection<string> { "/name/first", "/name/last" } }, // /address is unique. new UniqueKey { Paths = new Collection<string> { "/address" } }, } } }; DocumentCollection collection = await client.CreateDocumentCollectionAsync(databaseLink, collectionSpec });

var doc = JObject.Parse("{"name": { "first": "John", "last": "Smith" }, "alias":"johnsmith" }"); await client.CreateDocumentAsync(collection.SelfLink, doc);

doc = JObject.Parse("{"name": { "first": "James", "last": "Smith" }, "alias":"jamessmith" }"); await client.CreateDocumentAsync(collection.SelfLink, doc);

try { // Error: first+last name is not unique. doc = JObject.Parse("{"name": { "first": "John", "last": "Smith" }, "alias":"johnsmith1" }"); await client.CreateDocumentAsync(collection.SelfLink, doc); throw new Exception("CreateDocumentAsync should have thrown exception/conflict"); } catch (DocumentClientException ex) { if (ex.StatusCode != System.Net.HttpStatusCode.Conflict) throw; }

try { // Error: alias is not unique. doc = JObject.Parse("{"name": { "first": "James Jr", "last": "Smith" }, "alias":"jamessmith" }"); await client.CreateDocumentAsync(collection.SelfLink, doc); throw new Exception("CreateDocumentAsync should have thrown exception/conflict"); } catch (DocumentClientException ex) { if (ex.StatusCode != System.Net.HttpStatusCode.Conflict) throw; }
