Hi Harry,

Thanks for writing to us.

Kindly use the below code snippet for updating the document in storage service:

var dbName:String  = "<Your_DataBase_Name>";

var collectionName:String = "<Your_Collection_Name>";   

var key:String = "age";  

var value:int = 30;    

var query:Query = QueryBuilder.build(key, value, Operator.GREATER_THAN);  

var newJsonDoc:Object  = new Object();

newJsonDoc.name = "John"; 

newJsonDoc.age = 20; 

storageService.updateDocumentByQuery(dbName, collectionName, query ,newJsonDoc ,new callback());

class callback implements App42CallBack  


public function onException(exception:App42Exception):void  


trace("Exception Message " + exception);  


public function onSuccess(response:Object):void  


var storage:Storage = Storage(response);

var jsonDoc:JSONDocument = new JSONDocument(); 

trace("dbName is " + storage.getDbName());

trace("Collection Name is :  " + storage.getCollectionName());

var jsonDocsList:Array = storage.getJsonDocList();

for(var i:int=0; i < jsonDocsList.length;i++)


jsonDoc = JSONDocument(jsonDocsList[i]);

trace("Docid is : " + jsonDoc.getDocId());

trace("CreatedAt is : " + jsonDoc.getCreatedAt());

trace("UpdatedAt is :  " + jsonDoc.getUpdatedAt());

trace("JsonDoc is :  " + jsonDoc.getJsonDoc());




Let me know if it helps.

Our updateDocumentByKeyValueWithJsonObject method, support only string values in input parameter e.g: If you want to update your document where values is other that String you can use our updateDocsByQuery
in which you can update your values base on your given query as shown in above code snippet.
Thanks! It works, but with one correction: var query:Query = QueryBuilder.build(key, value, ------>Operator.EQUALS<------);  But it overwrite JSON document :( Is there any API to just update some variables, not deleting another?
In this case, you need to use addOrUpdateKeys method which will update the json.
Kindly find the link below for addOrUpdateKey method:
