View Queries

The minimum information you need to execute a view query is the name of the design document and the view you wish you use.

results = client.query( designDocumentName='beer', viewName='brewery_beers' );

for( var result in results ) {
    writeOutput( result.document.name );
    writeOutput( '<br>' );
}

Here are the arguments you can pass into the query() or viewQuery() methods. For the latest and more in-depth information please visit our API Docs.

Argument Type Default Description
designDocumentName string The name of the design document in your Couchbase server
viewName string The name of the view to query from
options any {} The query options to use for this query. This can be a structure of name-value pairs or an actual Couchbase query options object usually using the newViewQuery() method.
deserialize boolean true If true, it will deserialize the documents if they are valid JSON, else they are ignored.
deserializeOptions struct A struct of options to help control how the data is deserialized when populating an object. See ObjectPopulator.cfc for more info.
inflateTo any A path to a CFC or closure that produces an object to try to inflate the document results on NON-Reduced views only!
filter function A closure or UDF that must return boolean to use to filter out results from the returning array of records, the closure receives a struct that has id, document, key, and value: function( row ). A true will add the row to the final results.
transform function A closure or UDF to use to transform records from the returning array of records, the closure receives a struct that has id, document, key, and value: function( row ). Since the struct is by reference, you do not need to return anything.
returnType any array The type of return for us to return to you. Available options: array, native, iterator

Results

CFCouchbase will natively transform the data into an array of structs with a specific format. These keys are included in the struct that represents a row. This is the same struct that is returned in the result array and passed into the transform and filter closures.

  • id - The unique document id. Only avaialble on non-reduced queries
  • document - The JSON document reinflated back to its original form. Only available on non-reduced views
  • key - For non-reduced queries, the key emitted from the map function. For reduced views, null.
  • value - For non-reduced queries, the value emitted from the map function. For reduced views, the output of the reduce function.

Example

// Return 10 records, skipping the first 20.  Force fresh data
results = client.query( 
    designDocumentName='beer', 
    viewName='brewery_beers', 
    options={ limit = 10, offset = 20, stale = 'FALSE' } 
);

// Only return 20 records and skip the reduce function in the view
results = client.query( 
    designDocumentName='beer', 
    viewName='by_location', 
    options={ limit = 20, reduce = false } 
);

// Group results (Will return a single record with the count as the value)
results = client.query( 
    designDocumentName='beer', 
    viewName='brewery_beers', 
    options={ group = true } 
);

// Start at the specified key and sort descending 
results = client.query( 
    designDocumentName='beer', 
    viewName='brewery_beers', 
    options={ sortOrder = 'DESC', startKey = ["aldaris","aldaris-zelta"] } 
);
