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

Parameters

database

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

Examples

The following query gets a reference to the collection named "spells" within the current database:

client.Query(
    Collection("spells")
);
RefV(id = "spells", collection = RefV(id = "collections"))
result, err := client.Query(
	f.Collection("spells"))

if err != nil {
	fmt.Fprintln(os.Stderr, err)
} else {
	fmt.Println(result)
}
{spells 0xc00008e300 0xc00008e300 <nil>}
System.out.println(
    client.query(
        Collection(Value("spells"))
    ).get());
ref(id = "spells", collection = ref(id = "collections"))
client.query(
  q.Collection('spells')
)
.then((ret) => console.log(ret))
.catch((err) => console.error('Error: %s', err))
Collection("spells")
result = client.query(
    q.collection("spells")
)
print(result)
Ref(id=spells, collection=Ref(id=collections))
client.query(Collection("spells"))
ref(id = "spells", collection = ref(id = "collections"))
