Agrega datos a Cloud Firestore

Hay varias formas de escribir datos en Cloud Firestore:

  • Configurar los datos de un documento dentro de una colección y especificar explícitamente un identificador de documento.
  • Agregar un documento nuevo a una colección. En este caso, Cloud Firestore genera automáticamente el identificador de documento.
  • Crear un documento vacío con un identificador generado automáticamente y asignarle datos después.

Esta guía explica cómo usar los métodos de configurar, agregar o actualizar documentos individuales en Cloud Firestore. Si deseas escribir datos de manera masiva, consulta Transacciones y escrituras en lotes.

Configura un documento

Para crear o sobrescribir un solo documento, usa el método set():

Web
// Add a new document in collection "cities"
db.collection("cities").doc("LA").set({
    name: "Los Angeles",
    state: "CA",
    country: "USA"
})
.then(function() {
    console.log("Document successfully written!");
})
.catch(function(error) {
    console.error("Error writing document: ", error);
});
Swift
// Add a new document in collection "cities"
db.collection("cities").document("LA").setData([
    "name": "Los Angeles",
    "state": "CA",
    "country": "USA"
]) { err in
    if let err = err {
        print("Error writing document: \(err)")
    } else {
        print("Document successfully written!")
    }
}
Objective-C
// Add a new document in collection "cities"
[[[self.db collectionWithPath:@"cities"] documentWithPath:@"LA"] setData:@{
  @"name": @"Los Angeles",
  @"state": @"CA",
  @"country": @"USA"
} completion:^(NSError * _Nullable error) {
  if (error != nil) {
    NSLog(@"Error writing document: %@", error);
  } else {
    NSLog(@"Document successfully written!");
  }
}];
  
Android
Map<String, Object> city = new HashMap<>();
city.put("name", "Los Angeles");
city.put("state", "CA");
city.put("country", "USA");

db.collection("cities").document("LA")
        .set(city)
        .addOnSuccessListener(new OnSuccessListener<Void>() {
            @Override
            public void onSuccess(Void aVoid) {
                Log.d(TAG, "DocumentSnapshot successfully written!");
            }
        })
        .addOnFailureListener(new OnFailureListener() {
            @Override
            public void onFailure(@NonNull Exception e) {
                Log.w(TAG, "Error writing document", e);
            }
        });
Java
// Create a Map to store the data we want to set
Map<String, Object> docData = new HashMap<>();
docData.put("name", "Los Angeles");
docData.put("state", "CA");
docData.put("country", "USA");
// Add a new document (asynchronously) in collection "cities" with id "LA"
ApiFuture<WriteResult> future = db.collection("cities").document("LA").set(docData);
// ...
// future.get() blocks on response
System.out.println("Update time : " + future.get().getUpdateTime());
Python
data = {
    u'name': u'Los Angeles',
    u'state': u'CA',
    u'country': u'USA'
}

# Add a new doc in collection 'cities' with ID 'LA'
db.collection(u'cities').document(u'LA').set(data)
Node.js
var data = {
  name: 'Los Angeles',
  state: 'CA',
  country: 'USA'
};

// Add a new document in collection "cities" with ID 'LA'
var setDoc = db.collection('cities').doc('LA').set(data);
Go
_, err := client.Collection("cities").Doc("LA").Set(ctx, map[string]interface{}{
	"name":    "Los Angeles",
	"state":   "CA",
	"country": "USA",
})
if err != nil {
	return err
}
PHP
$data = [
    'name' => 'Los Angeles',
    'state' => 'CA',
    'country' => 'USA'
];
$db->collection('cities')->document('LA')->set($data);

Si el documento no existe, se creará. Si el documento existe, su contenido se sobrescribirá con los datos proporcionados, a menos que especifiques que los datos se deberían combinar en el documento existente, de la siguiente manera:

Web
var cityRef = db.collection('cities').doc('BJ');

var setWithMerge = cityRef.set({
    capital: true
}, { merge: true });
Swift
// Update one field, creating the document if it does not exist.
db.collection("cities").document("BJ").setData([ "capital": true ], options: SetOptions.merge())
Objective-C
// Write to the document reference, merging data with existing
// if the document already exists
[[[self.db collectionWithPath:@"cities"] documentWithPath:@"BJ"]
     setData:@{ @"capital": @YES }
     options:[FIRSetOptions merge]
     completion:^(NSError * _Nullable error) {
       // ...
     }];
  
Android
// Update one field, creating the document if it does not already exist.
Map<String, Object> data = new HashMap<>();
data.put("capital", true);

db.collection("cities").document("BJ")
        .set(data, SetOptions.merge());
Java
// The option to merge data is not yet available for Java. Instead, call the
// update method and pass the option to create the document if it's missing.

//asynchronously update doc, create the document if missing
Map<String, Object> update = new HashMap<>();
update.put("capital", true);

ApiFuture<WriteResult> writeResult =
    db
        .collection("cities")
        .document("BJ")
        .set(update, SetOptions.merge());
// ...
System.out.println("Update time : " + writeResult.get().getUpdateTime());
Python
# The option to merge data is not yet available for Python. Instead, call the
# update method and pass the option to create the document if it's missing.

city_ref = db.collection(u'cities').document(u'BJ')

city_ref.update({
    u'capital': True
}, firestore.CreateIfMissingOption(True))
Node.js
// The option to merge data is not yet available for Node.js. Instead, call the
// update method and pass the option to create the document if it's missing.

var cityRef = db.collection('cities').doc('BJ');

var setWithOptions = cityRef.set({
  capital: true
}, { merge: true });
Go
_, err := client.Collection("cities").Doc("BJ").Set(ctx, map[string]interface{}{
	"capital": true,
}, firestore.MergeAll)

if err != nil {
	return err
}
PHP
$cityRef = $db->collection('cities')->document('BJ');
$cityRef->set([
    'capital' => true
], ['merge' => true]);

Si no estás seguro de la existencia del documento, no utilices la opción de combinar los datos nuevos con cualquier documento existente, para así evitar sobrescribir documentos completos.

Tipos de datos

Cloud Firestore te permite escribir una variedad de tipos de datos dentro de un documento, incluidos objetos y matrices anidadas, strings, booleanos, números, fechas y nulos. Cloud Firestore siempre almacena los números como dobles, independientemente del tipo de número que uses en tu código.

Web
var docData = {
    stringExample: "Hello world!",
    booleanExample: true,
    numberExample: 3.14159265,
    dateExample: new Date("December 10, 1815"),
    arrayExample: [5, true, "hello"],
    nullExample: null,
    objectExample: {
        a: 5,
        b: {
            nested: "foo"
        }

Objetos personalizados

El uso de objetos Map de Java para representar tus documentos a menudo no es muy conveniente, por lo que Cloud Firestore también permite la escritura de tus propios objetos Java con clases personalizadas. Cloud Firestore convertirá internamente los objetos en tipos de datos compatibles.

Con las clases personalizadas, podrías reescribir el ejemplo inicial de la siguiente manera:

Web
// Web uses JavaScript objects
// Supported
db.collection("data").doc("one").set({foo:'bar'});

// Not supported
class Foo {
   constructor () {
    this.foo =' bar';
  }
}
db.collection("data").doc("one").set(new Foo());
Swift
// This isn't supported in Swift. Use a value type instead.
Objective-C
// This isn't supported in Objective-C.
  
Android
public class City {

    private String name;
    private String state;
    private String country;
    private boolean capital;
    private long population;

    public City() {}

    public City(String name, String state, String country, boolean capital, long population) {
        // ...
    }

    public String getName() {
        return name;
    }

    public String getState() {
        return state;
    }

    public String getCountry() {
        return country;
    }

    public boolean isCapital() {
        return capital;
    }

    public long getPopulation() {
        return population;
    }

}
Java
public City() {
  // Must have a public no-argument constructor
}

// Initialize all fields of a city
public City(String name, String state, String country, Boolean capital, Long population) {
  this.name = name;
  this.state = state;
  this.country = country;
  this.capital = capital;
  this.population = population;
}
Python
class City(object):
    def __init__(self, name, state, country, capital=False, population=0):
        self.name = name
        self.state = state
        self.country = country
        self.capital = capital
        self.population = population

    @staticmethod
    def from_dict(source):
        # ...

    def to_dict(self):
        # ...

    def __repr__(self):
        return u'City(name={}, country={}, population={}, capital={})'.format(
            self.name, self.country, self.population, self.capital)
Node.js
// Node.js uses JavaScript objects
Go
// City represents a city.
type City struct {
	Name       string `firestore:"name,omitempty"`
	State      string `firestore:"state,omitempty"`
	Country    string `firestore:"country,omitempty"`
	Capital    bool   `firestore:"capital,omitempty"`
	Population int64  `firestore:"population,omitempty"`
}

Web
// Web uses JavaScript objects
Swift
// This isn't supported in Swift. Use a value type instead.
Objective-C
// This isn't supported in Objective-C.
  
Android
City city = new City("Los Angeles", "CA", "USA", false, 5000000L);
db.collection("cities").document("LA").set(city);
Java
City city = new City("Los Angeles", "CA", "USA", false, 3900000L);
ApiFuture<WriteResult> future = db.collection("cities").document("LA").set(city);
// block on response if required
System.out.println("Update time : " + future.get().getUpdateTime());
Python
city = City(name=u'Los Angeles', state=u'CA', country=u'USA')
db.collection(u'cities').document(u'LA').set(city.to_dict())
Node.js
// Node.js uses JavaScript objects
Go
city := City{
	Name:    "Los Angeles",
	Country: "USA",
}
_, err := client.Collection("cities").Doc("LA").Set(ctx, city)
if err != nil {
	return err
}
PHP
// This isn't supported in PHP.

Agrega un documento

Cuando usas set() para crear un documento, debes especificar un ID para el documento que vas a crear. Por ejemplo:

Web
db.collection("cities").doc("new-city-id").set(data);
Swift
db.collection("cities").document("new-city-id").setData(data)
Objective-C
[[[self.db collectionWithPath:@"cities"] documentWithPath:@"new-city-id"]
    setData:data];
  
Android
db.collection("cities").document("new-city-id").set(data);
Java
db.collection("cities").document("new-city-id").set(data);
Python
db.collection(u'cities').document(u'new-city-id').set(data)
Node.js
db.collection('cities').doc('new-city-id').set(data);
Go
_, err := client.Collection("cities").Doc("new-city-id").Set(ctx, data)
if err != nil {
	return err
}
PHP
$db->collection('cities')->document('new-city-id')->set($data);

Pero a veces no hay un ID significativo para el documento y es más conveniente dejar que Cloud Firestore genere automáticamente un ID. Para hacerlo, llama a add():

Web
// Add a new document with a generated id.
db.collection("cities").add({
    name: "Tokyo",
    country: "Japan"
})
.then(function(docRef) {
    console.log("Document written with ID: ", docRef.id);
})
.catch(function(error) {
    console.error("Error adding document: ", error);
});
Swift
// Add a new document with a generated id.
var ref: DocumentReference? = nil
ref = db.collection("cities").addDocument(data: [
    "name": "Tokyo",
    "country": "Japan"
]) { err in
    if let err = err {
        print("Error adding document: \(err)")
    } else {
        print("Document added with ID: \(ref!.documentID)")
    }
}
Objective-C
// Add a new document with a generated id.
__block FIRDocumentReference *ref =
    [[self.db collectionWithPath:@"cities"] addDocumentWithData:@{
      @"name": @"Tokyo",
      @"country": @"Japan"
    } completion:^(NSError * _Nullable error) {
      if (error != nil) {
        NSLog(@"Error adding document: %@", error);
      } else {
        NSLog(@"Document added with ID: %@", ref.documentID);
      }
    }];
  
Android
// Add a new document with a generated id.
Map<String, Object> data = new HashMap<>();
data.put("name", "Tokyo");
data.put("country", "Japan");

db.collection("cities")
        .add(data)
        .addOnSuccessListener(new OnSuccessListener<DocumentReference>() {
            @Override
            public void onSuccess(DocumentReference documentReference) {
                Log.d(TAG, "DocumentSnapshot written with ID: " + documentReference.getId());
            }
        })
        .addOnFailureListener(new OnFailureListener() {
            @Override
            public void onFailure(@NonNull Exception e) {
                Log.w(TAG, "Error adding document", e);
            }
        });
Java
// Add document data with auto-generated id.
Map<String, Object> data = new HashMap<>();
data.put("name", "Tokyo");
data.put("country", "Japan");
ApiFuture<DocumentReference> addedDocRef = db.collection("cities").add(data);
System.out.println("Added document with ID: " + addedDocRef.get().getId());
Python
city = City(name=u'Tokyo', state=None, country=u'Japan')
db.collection(u'cities').add(city.to_dict())
Node.js
// Add a new document with a generated id.
var addDoc = db.collection('cities').add({
  name: 'Tokyo',
  country: 'Japan'
}).then(ref => {
  console.log('Added document with ID: ', ref.id);
});
Go
_, _, err := client.Collection("cities").Add(ctx, map[string]interface{}{
	"name":    "Tokyo",
	"country": "Japan",
})
if err != nil {
	return err
}
PHP
$data = [
    'name' => 'Tokyo',
    'country' => 'Japan'
];
$addedDocRef = $db->collection('cities')->add($data);
printf('Added document with ID: %s' . PHP_EOL, $addedDocRef->id());

En algunos casos, puede ser útil crear una referencia de documento con un ID generado automáticamente y, luego, usar la referencia más adelante. Para este caso de uso, puedes llamar a doc():

Web
// Add a new document with a generated id.
var newCityRef = db.collection("cities").doc();

// later...
newCityRef.set(data);
Swift
let newCityRef = db.collection("cities").document()

// later...
newCityRef.setData([
    // ...
])
Objective-C
FIRDocumentReference *newCityRef = [[self.db collectionWithPath:@"cities"] documentWithAutoID];
// later...
[newCityRef setData:@{ /* ... */ }];
  
Android
Map<String, Object> data = new HashMap<>();

DocumentReference newCityRef = db.collection("cities").document();

// Later...
newCityRef.set(data);
Java
// Add document data after generating an id.
DocumentReference addedDocRef = db.collection("cities").document();
System.out.println("Added document with ID: " + addedDocRef.getId());

// later...
ApiFuture<WriteResult> writeResult = addedDocRef.set(data);
Python
new_city_ref = db.collection(u'cities').document()

# later...
new_city_ref.set({
    # ...
})
Node.js
var newCityRef = db.collection('cities').doc();

// Later...
var setDoc = newCityRef.set({
  // ...
});
Go
ref := client.Collection("cities").NewDoc()

// later...
_, err := ref.Set(ctx, data)
if err != nil {
	return err
}
PHP
$addedDocRef = $db->collection('cities')->newDocument();
printf('Added document with ID: %s' . PHP_EOL, $addedDocRef->id());
$addedDocRef->set($data);

En segundo plano, .add(...) y .doc().set(...) son completamente equivalentes, por lo que puedes usar lo que te resulte más conveniente.

Actualizar un documento

Para actualizar algunos campos de un documento sin sobrescribir todo el documento, usa el método update():

Web
var washingtonRef = db.collection("cities").doc("DC");

// Set the "capital" field of the city 'DC'
return washingtonRef.update({
    capital: true
})
.then(function() {
    console.log("Document successfully updated!");
})
.catch(function(error) {
    // The document probably doesn't exist.
    console.error("Error updating document: ", error);
});
Swift
let washingtonRef = db.collection("cities").document("DC")

// Set the "capital" field of the city 'DC'
washingtonRef.updateData([
    "capital": true
]) { err in
    if let err = err {
        print("Error updating document: \(err)")
    } else {
        print("Document successfully updated")
    }
}
Objective-C
FIRDocumentReference *washingtonRef =
    [[self.db collectionWithPath:@"cities"] documentWithPath:@"DC"];
// Set the "capital" field of the city
[washingtonRef updateData:@{
  @"capital": @YES
} completion:^(NSError * _Nullable error) {
  if (error != nil) {
    NSLog(@"Error updating document: %@", error);
  } else {
    NSLog(@"Document successfully updated");
  }
}];
  
Android
DocumentReference washingtonRef = db.collection("cities").document("DC");

// Set the "isCapital" field of the city 'DC'
washingtonRef
        .update("capital", true)
        .addOnSuccessListener(new OnSuccessListener<Void>() {
            @Override
            public void onSuccess(Void aVoid) {
                Log.d(TAG, "DocumentSnapshot successfully updated!");
            }
        })
        .addOnFailureListener(new OnFailureListener() {
            @Override
            public void onFailure(@NonNull Exception e) {
                Log.w(TAG, "Error updating document", e);
            }
        });
Java
// Update an existing document
DocumentReference docRef = db.collection("cities").document("DC");

// (async) Update one field
ApiFuture<WriteResult> future = docRef.update("capital", true);

// ...
WriteResult result = future.get();
System.out.println("Write result: " + result);
Python
city_ref = db.collection(u'cities').document(u'DC')

# Set the capital field
city_ref.update({u'capital': True})
Node.js
var cityRef = db.collection('cities').doc('DC');

// Set the 'capital' field of the city

Actualiza los campos en objetos anidados

Si tu documento contiene objetos anidados, puedes usar la "notación de puntos" para hacer referencia a los campos anidados dentro del documento cuando llamas a update():

Web
// Create an initial document to update.
var frankDocRef = db.collection("users").doc("frank");
frankDocRef.set({
    name: "Frank",
    favorites: { food: "Pizza", color: "Blue", subject: "recess" },
    age: 12
});

// To update age and favorite color:
db.collection("users").doc("frank").update({
    "age": 13,
    "favorites.color": "Red"
})
.then(function() {
    console.log("Document successfully updated!");
});
Swift
// Create an initial document to update.
let frankDocRef = db.collection("users").document("frank")
frankDocRef.setData([
    "name": "Frank",

    "age": 12
    ])

// To update age and favorite color:

// Update the timestamp field with the value from the server
var updateTimestamp = docRef.update({
    timestamp: firebase.firestore.FieldValue.serverTimestamp()

db.collection("objects").document("some-id").updateData([
    "lastUpdated": FieldValue.serverTimestamp(),
