How to perform CRUD key-value operations in Couchbase.
This guide is for Couchbase Capella.
Every item in a database goes through the basic CRUD cycle, which is typical of an application’s use of data. CRUD stands for create, read, update, and delete:
Create: when data is first inserted into the cluster
Read: when an application retrieves the data
Update: when data is modified to reflect a change in the state represented by the data
Delete: when the data is no longer needed
The Key-Value (KV) or Data Service offers Couchbase clients the fastest and simplest way to create, retrieve or mutate data where the key is known.
If you want to try out the examples in this section, follow the instructions given in Create a Free Account and Deploy Your Database to create a free account, deploy a database, and load a sample dataset.
Clients access data by connecting to a Couchbase cluster over the network. The most common type of client is a Couchbase SDK, which is a full programmatic API that enables applications to take the best advantage of Couchbase. This developer guide focuses on the most commonly-used SDKs, but full explanations and reference documentation for all SDKs is available.

It is also possible to access document data via the Couchbase Capella UI.
