Description

The update operation only modifies the specified fields in the documents pointed to by ref. Updates are partial, and only modify values that are specified in the param_object. Changes to scalar values and arrays are entirely replaced by the new data. Modifications to objects are merged. Setting a value to null completely removes the value. Fields in the document not specified in the param_object are not modified.
