As modern, cloud-based apps have evolved, they’ve required data storage to adapt with them. Services such as Azure Cosmos DB have risen to the challenge by providing a fully managed, multi-model, globally distributed NoSQL database.
In this hands-on lab scenario, your organization (Awesome Company) is developing a next-generation video game that will rely heavily on the Cloud. In order to achieve guaranteed performance around the globe, you’ve chosen Azure Cosmos DB as the data backend. There are several playable zones within the game with new regions being added to those zones regularly. In order to make this an efficient and easily repeatable process, you’re creating a stored procedure within the regions container to handle the work.
Performing the actions of this lab will help you become familiar with how to create stored procedures for Azure Cosmos DB and execute them from within the Portal.
**Note: Because the Azure Cosmos DB account is pre-provisioned, it will take significant time for the lab to start up. Please be patient and make sure you have at least an hour of time for completion of the lab.**
Successfully complete this lab by achieving the following learning objectives:
- Create a Stored Procedure
Using Data Explorer, create a stored procedure within the Regions container. It should be able to create a document with the region name, the zone (used as the partition key), and the terrain type passed in as parameters.
- Execute the Stored Procedure
Run the stored procedure multiple times in order to create a few records.
- Check the Results
Review the items list to make sure the documents were successfully created.
