Core couchbase API

Cluster

class couchbase.cluster.Cluster(connstr, *options, **kwargs)

Create a Couchbase Cluster instance.

The cluster instance exposes the operations which are available to be performed against a cluster.

Note

Although creating an instance of Cluster is allowed, it is recommended to use the Cluster’s static Cluster.connect() method. See Cluster.connect() for connect for examples.

Parameters
  • connstr (str) –

    The connection string to use for connecting to the cluster. This is a URI-like string allowing specifying multiple hosts.

    The format of the connection string is the scheme (couchbase for normal connections, couchbases for SSL enabled connections); a list of one or more hostnames delimited by commas

  • options (ClusterOptions) – Global options to set for the cluster. Some operations allow the global options to be overriden by passing in options to the operation.

  • **kwargs (Dict[str, Any]) – keyword arguments that can be used in place or to overrride provided ClusterOptions

Raises
static connect(connstr, *options, **kwargs) couchbase.cluster.Cluster

Create a Couchbase Cluster and connect

Parameters
  • connstr (str) –

    The connection string to use for connecting to the cluster. This is a URI-like string allowing specifying multiple hosts.

    The format of the connection string is the scheme (couchbase for normal connections, couchbases for SSL enabled connections); a list of one or more hostnames delimited by commas

  • options (ClusterOptions) – Global options to set for the cluster. Some operations allow the global options to be overriden by passing in options to the operation.

  • **kwargs (Dict[str, Any]) – keyword arguments that can be used in place or to overrride provided ClusterOptions

Returns

If successful, a connect Couchbase Cluster instance.

Return type

Cluster

Raises

from datetime import timedelta

from couchbase.auth import PasswordAuthenticator
from couchbase.cluster import Cluster
from couchbase.options import ClusterOptions, ClusterTimeoutOptions

auth = PasswordAuthenticator('username', 'password')
timeout_opts = ClusterTimeoutOptions(kv_timeout=timedelta(seconds=10),
                                    query_timeout=timedelta(seconds=120))

Returns

An instance of MultiMutationResult.

Return type

MultiMutationResult

Raises

DocumentExistsException – If the key provided already exists on the server and the return_exceptions options is False. Otherwise the exception is returned as a match to the key, but is not raised.

Returns

An instance of MultiMutationResult.

Return type

MultiMutationResult

Raises

DocumentNotFoundException – If the key provided does not exist on the server and the return_exceptions options is False. Otherwise the exception is returned as a match to the key, but is not raised.

remove_multi(keys, *opts, **kwargs) couchbase.result.MultiMutationResult

For each key in the provided list, remove the existing document. This operation fails if the document does not exist.

Note

This method is part of an uncommitted API that is unlikely to change, but may still change as final consensus on its behavior has not yet been reached.

Parameters
  • keys (List[str]) – The keys to use for the multiple remove operations.

  • opts (RemoveMultiOptions) – Optional parameters for this operation.

  • **kwargs (Dict[str, Any]) – keyword arguments that can be used in place or to override provided RemoveMultiOptions

Returns

An instance of MultiMutationResult.

Return type

MultiMutationResult

Raises

DocumentNotFoundException – If the key provided does not exist on the server and the return_exceptions options is False. Otherwise the exception is returned as a match to the key, but is not raised.
