Session: How to mark entity as readonly?

Entities can be marked as read-only using markReadOnly. This operation is equal to adding to entity metadata a key Raven-Read-Only with value set to True.

Implications of setting entity as read-only are as follows:

  • change tracking won't apply to such entity
  • forcing updates or deletes (e.g. using Commands) will throw OperationVetoedException

Syntax

public void markReadOnly(Object entity);

Parameters
entity Object Instance of an entity that will be marked as read-only.

Example

Employee employee = session.load(Employee.class, "employees/1");
session.advanced().markReadOnly(employee);
session.saveChanges();
