Metadata API for PubNub C# SDK

This page describes the new Objects v2. To upgrade from Objects v1, refer to the migration guide.

Objects provides easy-to-use, serverless storage for user and channel data you need to build innovative, reliable, scalable applications. Use Objects to easily store metadata about your application users and channels, and their membership associations, without the need to stand up your own databases.

PubNub also triggers events when object data is set or removed from the database. Clients can receive these events in real time and update their front-end application accordingly.

User

Get Metadata for All Users

Description

Returns a paginated list of UUID Metadata objects, optionally including the custom data object for each.

Method(s)

To Get All UUID Metadata you can use the following method(s) in the C# V4 SDK:

pubnub.GetAllUuidMetadata().IncludeCustom(bool).IncludeCount(bool).Page(PNPageObject).Sort(List<string>).Filter(string).Limit(int)
ParameterTypeRequiredDescription
IncludeCustomboolOptionalWhether to fetch Custom fields or not.
IncludeCountboolOptionalRequest IncludeCount to be included in paginated response. By default, IncludeCount is omitted.
PagePNPageObjectOptionalUse for pagination.
SortList<string>OptionalList of properties to sort by. Available options are id, name, and updated. Use asc or desc to specify sort direction. For example: {name: 'asc'}
FilterstringOptionalExpression used to filter the results. Only objects whose properties satisfy the given expression are returned. The filter language is defined here.
LimitintOptionalNumber of objects to return in response. Default is 100, which is also the maximum value.

Objects Filtering Language Definition

The filtering language for Objects is similar to the stream filtering language.

Note the following:

  • Date/time properties, such as updated, must be compared to valid date/time strings formatted according to ISO 8601.

  • The LIKE operator supports wildcards denoted by the * character. A wildcard matches any sequence of arbitrary Unicode characters, including the empty sequence. The literal asterisk is matched when escaped using the backslash (\) character.

  • Values used with LIKE must be properly encoded just like any other string value. Thus, in order to escape an asterisk, the raw value must contain \\*.

  • The entire expression must be properly URL-encoded when used in the query string.

Custom property filtering

You can't filter by custom properties.

<expression>           ::= <and_expression> ( "||" <and_expression> )*
<and_expression> ::= <binary_condition> ( "&&" <binary_condition> )*
<binary_condition> ::= "!" <binary_condition> | "(" <expression> ")" | <relational_condition>
<relational_condition> ::= <property_path> <relational_operator> <value>
<property_path> ::= <property_name> ( "." <property_name> )*
<property_name> ::= <identifier> | "[" <string> "]"
<value> ::= <string> | <number> | "true" | "false" | "null"

Tokens

<identifier> ::= <letter> | "$" | "_" ( <letter> | "$" | "_" | <digit> )*
<relational_operator> ::= "==" | "!=" | "<=" | ">=" | "<" | ">" | "LIKE"
<string> ::= <double_quote> ( "\" <double_quote> | "\" <special_char>
| "\" "u" <hex_digit> <hex_digit> <hex_digit> <hex_digit>
| <unicode_char> - <double_quote> - "\" )* <double_quote>

Sample object filtering operations

The following date/time comparison returns results that were modified on or after August 31st, 2019 (UTC):

updated >= "2019-08-31T00:00:00Z"

The following wildcard expression returns results whose name starts with the letter X:

name LIKE 'X*'

The following escaped wildcard expression returns results whose name contains an asterisk:

name LIKE '*\\**'
Last updated on
