bson_append_timestamp — bson_append_timestamp()

Synopsis

bool
bson_append_timestamp (bson_t *bson,
                       const char *key,
                       int key_length,
                       uint32_t timestamp,
                       uint32_t increment);

Parameters

  • bson: A bson_t.

  • key: An ASCII C string containing the name of the field.

  • key_length: The length of key in bytes, or -1 to determine the length with strlen().

  • timestamp: A uint32_t.

  • increment: A uint32_t.

Description

This function is not similar in functionality to bson_append_date_time(). Timestamp elements are different in that they include only second precision and an increment field.

They are primarily used for intra-MongoDB server communication.

The bson_append_timestamp() function shall append a new element of type BSON_TYPE_TIMESTAMP.

Returns

true if the operation was applied successfully, otherwise false and bson should be discarded.
