    • Any collection name can be entered as a prefix.
    • The collection name will be created if it doesn't exist yet.
    • If no collection name is specified, i.e. the ID string doesn't end with ( / ) or ( | ),
      then the document will be added to the @empty collection.
  • 2 - Edit document content
    Edit the document fields, the above document content showing is just an initial template.

  • 3 - Click Save when done

    • The current collection name is initially suggested.
    • Any other collection name of your choice can still be entered,
      document creation will be handled as described above in 'Create New Document'.
  • 2 - Edit document content

    • Edit the document fields
    • If all the documents in the collection have the same 'structure', i.e. same fields,
      then the initial document content showing will be those fields.
      (In the above example the fields are: 'ID Type' & 'Name')
    • If not all documents share the exact same fields,
      then the initial document content will be just the initial template as in 'Create New Document'.
  • 3 - Click Save when done

IDs Examples

  1. Semantic ID
    This ID was generated by entering the actual string in the document ID.
    i.e. "users/ayende@hr.com"

  2. Server-Side ID
    This ID was generated by entering: "users/" in the document ID.
    Note: the first document was created from node 'A' while the other one from node 'B'.

  3. Identity
    This ID was generated by entering: "users|" in the document ID.

  4. GUID
    This ID was generated by leaving the document ID field empty and just clicking 'Save'
