Examples

The following examples show how to register and use UDFs.


await client.CreateUserDefinedFunctionAsync(collectionLink, new UserDefinedFunction { Id = "calculateTax", Body = @"function(amt) { return amt * 0.05; }" });
client.CreateDocumentQuery<Book>(collectionLink, "SELECT VALUE udf.calculateTax(b.price) FROM books b");
client.CreateDocumentQuery<Book>(collectionLink, new SqlQuerySpec("SELECT VALUE udf.calculateTax(b.price) FROM books b"));
client.CreateDocumentQuery<Book>(collectionLink).Select(b => UserDefinedFunctionProvider.Invoke("calculateTax", b.Price));

await client.CreateUserDefinedFunctionAsync(collectionLink, new UserDefinedFunction { Id = "toLowerCase", Body = @"function(s) { return s.ToLowerCase(); }" });
client.CreateDocumentQuery<Book>(collectionLink, "SELECT * FROM books b WHERE b.toLowerCase = 'war and peace'");
client.CreateDocumentQuery<Book>(collectionLink, new SqlQuerySpec(
    "SELECT * FROM books b WHERE b.toLowerCase = @bookNameLowerCase",
    new SqlParameterCollection(new SqlParameter[] {new SqlParameter { Name = "@bookNameLowerCase", Value = "War And Peace".ToLower()
 }})));
 client.CreateDocumentQuery<Book>(collectionLink).Where(b => UserDefinedFunctionProvider.Invoke("toLowerCase", b.Title) == "war and peace");
 

Remarks

Azure Cosmos DB supports JavaScript user defined functions (UDFs) which are stored in the database and can be used inside queries.

Refer to http://azure.microsoft.com/documentation/articles/documentdb-sql-query/#javascript-integration for how to use UDFs within queries.

Refer to http://azure.microsoft.com/documentation/articles/documentdb-programming/#udf for more details about implementing UDFs in JavaScript.
