DocumentDB In The Microsoft Azure

In this article, we are going to see the concept of creating a DocumentDB and uploading JSON documents into it. Also, we will be writing the queries right from Azure portal. Before we proceed to the explanation, let me explain to you about the DocumentDB.


A DocumentDB is a Cloud Service, which is provided by Microsoft Azure. This DocumentDB is a NoSQL database. Here, there is no need of writing the queries. You can directly upload JSON files directly into the database rather than writing the queries.

Creating DocumentDB

Log in to your Azure portal, click on the new button, proceed by clicking the Databases and choose the NoSQL (DocumentDB). This will allow you to create a new DocumentDB. Enter a name for the database and select DocumentDB, choose the location and click on the create button
