Couchbase C Client  2.10.6
Asynchronous C Client for Couchbase
Touch/Expiry

Detailed Description

Modify or clear a document's expiration time.

Couchbase allows documents to contain expiration times (see lcb_CMDBASE::exptime). Most operations allow the expiry time to be updated, however lcb_touch3() allows the exclusive update of the expiration time without additional network overhead.

Typedef Documentation

◆ lcb_CMDTOUCH

Command structure for a touch request.

Note
The lcb_CMDTOUCH::cas field is ignored. The item's modification time is always updated regardless if the CAS on the server differs. The #exptime field is always used. If 0 then the expiry on the server is cleared.

◆ lcb_RESPTOUCH

Response structure for a touch request.

Note
the lcb_RESPTOUCH::cas field contains the current CAS of the item
