Retriving records in PHP

I have come across retrieving records in PHP. N i came to know we need view, for filtering and other operations. So how can i create view programatically.

You can use the BucketManager to create a design document (containing views) programatically. See:

Thank you for reply. Can i have a example of setView and getView in php sdk 2.0. and couchbase 3.


Here is an example of inserting a new design document using the SDK 2.0 API’s:

$bucketmgr = $bucket->manager();
$bucketmgr->insertDesignDocument('DDOC_NAME', array(
  'views' => array(
    '1ST_VIEW_NAME' => array( 'map' => 'VIEW_JAVASCRIPT' ),
    '2ND_VIEW_NAME' => array( 'map' => 'VIEW_JAVASCRIPT' )

Cheers, Brett

I tried the example.It is showing already exist error… So i even tried upsertDesignDocument, retuns true…
But designDocument is not created. I m using php sdk 2.0.3

@keshav_katwe did you make sure to look in the published section? I think it will create a non-development design doc by default.

What is the exact error?

This is the error which i m getting.
Fatal error: Uncaught exception ‘CouchbaseException’ with message ‘design document already exists’ in [CouchbaseNative]/CouchbaseBucketManager.class.php:70 Stack trace: #0 C:\xampp\htdocs\couch\example.php(15): CouchbaseBucketManager->insertDesignDocument(‘say1’, Array) #1 {main} thrown in [CouchbaseNative]/CouchbaseBucketManager.class.php on line 70

Here is my code.


$clusterConnection = new CouchbaseCluster('couchbase://localhost');
$bucket = $clusterConnection->openBucket('default');

$backetManager = $bucket->manager();

$data = array( 
        'views' => array(
            'SAY2' => array( 'map' => 'function (doc, meta) { emit(, doc); }' )
$result = $backetManager->insertDesignDocument('say1', $data);
