Save

This is a helper method to save (insert / update) ActiveModel into the database.

Save Behaviour

When saving an ActiveModel, it will perform either insert or update depending on the primary key attribute:

  • Insert if primary key is NotSet
  • Update if primary key is Set or Unchanged

Usage

Calling save to insert or update an ActiveModel.

use sea_orm::ActiveValue::NotSet;

let banana = fruit::ActiveModel {
id: NotSet, // primary key is NotSet
name: Set("Banana".to_owned()),
..Default::default() // all other attributes are `NotSet`
};

// Insert, because primary key `id` is `NotSet`
let banana: fruit::ActiveModel = banana.save(db).await?;

banana.name = Set("Banana Mongo".to_owned());

// Update, because primary key `id` is `Unchanged`
let banana: fruit::ActiveModel = banana.save(db).await?;
