WriteBatch

public class WriteBatch extends Object

A write batch, used to perform multiple writes as a single atomic unit.

A Batch object can be acquired by calling batch(). It provides methods for adding writes to the write batch. None of the writes will be committed (or visible locally) until commit() is called.

Unlike transactions, write batches are persisted offline and therefore are preferable when you don't need to condition your writes on read data.

Subclassing Note: Firestore classes are not meant to be subclassed except for use in test mocks. Subclassing is not supported in production code and new SDK releases may break code that does so.

public Task<Void> commit ()

Commits all of the writes in this write batch as a single atomic unit.

Returns
  • A Task that will be resolved when the write finishes.

public WriteBatch delete (DocumentReference documentRef)

Deletes the document referred to by the provided DocumentReference.

Parameters
documentRef The DocumentReference to delete.
Returns
  • This WriteBatch instance. Used for chaining method calls.

public WriteBatch set (DocumentReference documentRef, Map<StringObject> data)

Overwrites the document referred to by the provided DocumentReference. If the document does not yet exist, it will be created. If a document already exists, it will be overwritten.

Parameters
documentRef The DocumentReference to overwrite.
data A map of the fields and values for the document.
Returns
  • This WriteBatch instance. Used for chaining method calls.

public WriteBatch set (DocumentReference documentRef, Map<StringObject> data, SetOptions options)

Writes to the document referred to by the provided DocumentReference. If the document does not yet exist, it will be created. If you pass SetOptions, the provided data can be merged into an existing document.

Parameters
documentRef The DocumentReference to overwrite.
data A map of the fields and values for the document.
options An object to configure the set behavior.
Returns
  • This WriteBatch instance. Used for chaining method calls.

public WriteBatch set (DocumentReference documentRef, Object pojo)

Overwrites the document referred to by the provided DocumentReference. If the document does not yet exist, it will be created. If a document already exists, it will be overwritten.

Parameters
documentRef The DocumentReference to overwrite.
pojo The POJO that will be used to populate the document contents.
Returns
  • This WriteBatch instance. Used for chaining method calls.

public WriteBatch set (DocumentReference documentRef, Object pojo, SetOptions options)

Parameters
documentRef The DocumentReference to overwrite.
pojo The POJO that will be used to populate the document contents.
options An object to configure the set behavior.
Returns
  • This WriteBatch instance. Used for chaining method calls.

public WriteBatch update (DocumentReference documentRef, Map<StringObject> data)
