Description

The Database function returns a valid Reference for the specified child database name, within the specified child database. If a child database is not specified, the returned database reference belongs to the current database.

The Database function only looks up child databases, so finding a database using this function requires you to use an admin key for the current database (a server or client key cannot be used to access any child database).

It is not possible to access a parent or peer database with this function. To access databases outside of the current database, use the Fauna Dashboard.

Examples

  1. The following query gets a Reference to the database named "prydain" within the current database:

    try
    {
        Value result = await client.Query(
            Database("prydain")
        );
        Console.WriteLine(result);
    }
    catch (Exception e)
    {
        Console.WriteLine($"ERROR: {e.Message}");
    }
    RefV(id = "prydain", collection = RefV(id = "databases"))
    result, err := client.Query(
    	f.Database("prydain"))
    
    if err != nil {
    	fmt.Fprintln(os.Stderr, err)
    } else {
    	fmt.Println(result)
    }
    {prydain 0xc000162090 0xc000162090 <nil>}
    System.out.println(
        client.query(
            Database("prydain")
        ).get());
    ref(id = "prydain", collection = ref(id = "databases"))
    client.query(
      q.Database('prydain')
    )
    .then((ret) => console.log(ret))
    .catch((err) => console.error(
      'Error: [%s] %s: %s',
      err.name,
      err.message,
      err.errors()[0].description,
    ))
    Database("prydain")
    result = client.query(
      q.database("prydain")
    )
    print(result)
    Ref(id=prydain, collection=Ref(id=databases))
    Database('prydain')
    Database("prydain")

  2. The following query gets a Reference to the database named "grandchild_db" within the child database named "prydain":

    try
    {
        Value result = await client.Query(
            Database("grandchild_db", Database("prydain"))
        );
        Console.WriteLine(result);
    }
    catch (Exception e)
    {
        Console.WriteLine($"ERROR: {e.Message}");
    }
    RefV(id = "grandchild_db", collection = RefV(id = "databases"), database = RefV(id = "prydain", collection = RefV(id = "databases")))
    result, err := client.Query(
    	f.ScopedDatabase("grandchild_db", f.Database("prydain")))
    
    if err != nil {
    	fmt.Fprintln(os.Stderr, err)
    } else {
    	fmt.Println(result)
    }
    {grandchild_db 0xc00008e2d0 0xc00008e2d0 0xc00008e330}
    System.out.println(
        client.query(
            Database("grandchild_db", Database("prydain"))
        ).get());
    ref(id = "grandchild_db", collection = ref(id = "databases"), database = ref(id = "prydain", collection = ref(id = "databases")))
    client.query(
      q.Database('grandchild_db', q.Database('prydain'))
    )
    .then((ret) => console.log(ret))
    .catch((err) => console.error(
      'Error: [%s] %s: %s',
      err.name,
      err.message,
      err.errors()[0].description,
    ))
    Database("grandchild_db", Database("prydain"))
    result = client.query(
      q.database("grandchild_db", q.database("prydain"))
    )
    print(result)
    Ref(id=grandchild_db, collection=Ref(id=databases), database=Ref(id=prydain, collection=Ref(id=databases)))
    Database('grandchild_db', Database('prydain'))
