Description

This function is deprecated as of FaunaDB 2.7.0. Use Collection instead.

A Class was renamed to a Collection in FaunaDB 2.7.0. This function continues to exist for compatibility with older drivers.

The Class function returns a valid Reference for the specified class (now, collection) name, in the specified child database. If a child database is not specified, the returned class (now, collection) reference belongs to the current database.

When a child database is specified, an admin key must be used to call Class (server or client keys, or ABAC tokens, cannot be used to access a child database).

Parameters

Argument Type Definition and Requirements

name

The name of a class (now, collection).

database

Optional - A reference to a child database. If not specified, the current database is used.

Returns

A reference to a class (now, collection) with the specified name, in the specified child database (or the current database if database is not specified).

Examples

The following query gets a reference to the class (now, collection) named "spells" within the current database:

curl https://db.fauna.com/ \
    -u fnAChGwBcAACAO70ziE0cfROosNJHdgBmJU1PgpL: \
    -d '{ "collection": "spells" }'
client.Query(Collection("spells"));
System.out.println(client.query(Collection(Value("spells"))).get());
result, _ := client.Query(f.Collection("spells"))

fmt.Println(result)
client.query(Collection("spells"))
client.query(q.collection("spells"))
client.query(q.Collection('spells'))
.then((ret) => console.log(ret))
