The Couchbase .NET SDK provides an API for managing a Couchbase cluster programmatically.
The primary means for managing clusters is through the Couchbase Web UI which provides an easy to use interface for adding, removing, monitoring, and modifying buckets. In some instances you may wish to have a programmatic interface. For example, if you wish to manage a cluster from a setup script, or if you are setting up buckets in test scaffolding.
The SDK also comes with some convenience functionality for common Couchbase management requests — see the Provisioning Cluster Resources guide.
Management operations in the .NET SDK may be performed through several interfaces depending on the object:
To create or delete a bucket, first get an
IBucketManager instance from the
Buckets property on the cluster:
IBucketManager manager = cluster.Buckets; // create a bucket var bucketSettings = new BucketSettings(); bucketSettings.Name = "mynewbucket"; bucketSettings.BucketType = BucketType.Couchbase; bucketSettings.RamQuotaMB = 100; await manager.CreateBucketAsync(bucketSettings); // delete a bucket await manager.DropBucketAsync("mynewbucket");
IBucketManager is also used to expose information about an existing bucket (
manager.GetBucketAsync(string)) or to update an existing bucket (
