JSON.SET - Amazon MemoryDB for Redis
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China.

JSON.SET

Set JSON values at the path.

If the path calls for an object member:

  • If the parent element does not exist, the command will return NONEXISTENT error.

  • If the parent element exists but is not an object, the command will return ERROR.

  • If the parent element exists and is an object:

    • If the member does not exist, a new member will be appended to the parent object if and only if the parent object is the last child in the path. Otherwise, the command will return NONEXISTENT error.

    • If the member exists, its value will be replaced by the JSON value.

If the path calls for an array index:

  • If the parent element does not exist, the command will return a NONEXISTENT error.

  • If the parent element exists but is not an array, the command will return ERROR.

  • If the parent element exists but the index is out of bounds, the command will return OUTOFBOUNDARIES error.

  • If the parent element exists and the index is valid, the element will be replaced by the new JSON value.

If the path calls for an object or array, the value (object or array) will be replaced by the new JSON value.

Syntax

JSON.SET <key> <path> <json> [NX | XX]

[NX | XX] Where you can have 0 or 1 of [NX | XX] identifiers

  • key (required) – Redis key of JSON document type

  • path (required) – JSON path. For a new Redis key, the JSON path must be the root ".".

  • NX (optional) – If the path is the root, set the value only if the Redis key does not exist, i.e., insert a new document. If the path is not the root, set the value only if the path does not exist, i.e., insert a value into the document.

  • XX (optional) – If the path is the root, set the value only if the Redis key exists, i.e., replace the existing document. If the path is not the root, set the value only if the path exists, i.e., update the existing value.

Return

  • Simple String 'OK' on success.

  • Null if the NX or XX condition is not met.

Examples

Enhanced path syntax:

127.0.0.1:6379> JSON.SET k1 . '{"a":{"a":1, "b":2, "c":3}}' OK 127.0.0.1:6379> JSON.SET k1 $.a.* '0' OK 127.0.0.1:6379> JSON.GET k1 "{\"a\":{\"a\":0,\"b\":0,\"c\":0}}" 127.0.0.1:6379> JSON.SET k2 . '{"a": [1,2,3,4,5]}' OK 127.0.0.1:6379> JSON.SET k2 $.a[*] '0' OK 127.0.0.1:6379> JSON.GET k2 "{\"a\":[0,0,0,0,0]}"

Restricted path syntax:

127.0.0.1:6379> JSON.SET k1 . '{"c":{"a":1, "b":2}, "e": [1,2,3,4,5]}' OK 127.0.0.1:6379> JSON.SET k1 .c.a '0' OK 127.0.0.1:6379> JSON.GET k1 "{\"c\":{\"a\":0,\"b\":2},\"e\":[1,2,3,4,5]}" 127.0.0.1:6379> JSON.SET k1 .e[-1] '0' OK 127.0.0.1:6379> JSON.GET k1 "{\"c\":{\"a\":0,\"b\":2},\"e\":[1,2,3,4,0]}" 127.0.0.1:6379> JSON.SET k1 .e[5] '0' (error) OUTOFBOUNDARIES Array index is out of bounds
