Token metadata

Problem

Store additional metadata within a token document.

Solution

Set the data field in a token:

client.query(
  q.Update(
    q.Ref(q.Tokens(), '1'),
    {
      data: {
        team: 'Marketing',
      },
    },
  )
)
.then((ret) => console.log(ret))
.catch((err) => console.error(
  'Error: [%s] %s: %s',
  err.name,
  err.message,
  err.errors()[0].description,
))
{
  ref: Ref(Tokens(), "1"),
  ts: 1631739422930000,
  instance: Ref(Collection("users"), "1"),
  data: { team: 'Marketing' }
}
result = client.query(
  q.update(
    q.ref(q.tokens(), "1"),
    {
      "data": {
        "team": "Marketing"
      }
    }
  )
)
print(result)
{'ref': Ref(id=1, collection=Ref(id=tokens)), 'ts': 1631739701090000, 'instance': Ref(id=1, collection=Ref(id=users, collection=Ref(id=collections))), 'data': {'team': 'Marketing'}}
result, err := client.Query(
	f.Update(
		f.Ref(f.Tokens(), "1"),
		f.Obj{
			"data": f.Obj{
				"team": "Marketing",
			},
		},
	))

if err != nil {
	fmt.Fprintln(os.Stderr, err)
} else {
	fmt.Println(result)
}
map[data:map[team:Marketing] instance:{1 0xc000200660 0xc000200660 <nil>} ref:{1 0xc0002004b0 0xc0002004b0 <nil>} ts:1631739856660000]
try
{
    Value result = await client.Query(
        Update(
            Ref(Tokens(), "1"),
            Obj(
                "data", Obj(
                    "team", "Marketing"
                )
            )
        )
    );
    Console.WriteLine(result);
}
catch (Exception e)
{
    Console.WriteLine($"ERROR: {e.Message}");
}

Update(
  Ref(Tokens(), '1'),

    }
  }
)
