Usage Sample

  • In this sample, we attach a file to all User documents.
    List<User> result;
    // Choose user profiles to attach files to
    using (var session = store.OpenSession())
        IRavenQueryable<User> query = session.Query<User>()
            .Where(u => u.Age < 30);
        result = query.ToList();
    // Bulk-insert an attachment to the chosen users
    using (var bulkInsert = store.BulkInsert())
        for (var user = 0; user < result.Count; user++)
            byte[] byteArray = Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes("some contents here");
            var stream = new MemoryStream(byteArray);
            string userId = result[user].Id;
            // Choose the document to attach to
            var attachmentsFor = bulkInsert.AttachmentsFor(userId);
            // Attach the stream
            await attachmentsFor.StoreAsync("attName", stream);
