Working with the MongoDB API in Azure Cosmos DB

About this Hands-on Lab

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, our 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, we’ve chosen Azure Cosmos DB as the data backend. One of the unique features of this game will be the ability to create custom character builds and even share them for others to use. The team responsible for this part of the project has been working in MongoDB, so we’ve provisioned a database account with the MongoDB API as well as a `Characters` database and `Builds` collection. We will now begin working with the character build data.

Performing the actions of this lab will help one become familiar with how to create, modify, delete, and query data using the MongoDB API.

**Note:** Because the Azure Cosmos DB account is preprovisioned, 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.

Learning Objectives

Successfully complete this lab by achieving the following learning objectives:

Insert Builds

Use Data Explorer within the Azure Cosmos DB account to create build documents.

Example Fields:

Update Builds

Use Data Explorer within the Azure Cosmos DB account to update build documents. One suggestion would be to change the character class or subclass.

Class Examples:

  • Healer
  • Tank
  • Ranger
Query Builds

Use Data Explorer within the Azure Cosmos DB account to query the build documents. One suggestion would be to search for all that are of the same class.
