NAME

       mongoc_collection_watch - mongoc_collection_watch()

SYNOPSIS

          mongoc_change_stream_t*
          mongoc_collection_watch (const mongoc_collection_t *coll,
                                   const bson_t *pipeline,
                                   const bson_t *opts);

       A  helper  function  to create a change stream. It is preferred to call this function over
       using a raw aggregation to create a change stream.

       This function uses the read preference and read concern of the collection. If  the  change
       stream  needs  to re-establish connection, the same read preference will be used. This may
       happen if the change stream encounters a resumable error.

       WARNING:
          A change stream is only supported with majority read concern.

PARAMETERS

       · coll: A mongoc_collection_t specifying the collection which the  change  stream  listens
         to.

       · pipeline:  A  bson_t representing an aggregation pipeline appended to the change stream.
         This may be an empty document.

       · opts: A bson_t containing change stream options.

       opts may be NULL or a BSON document with additional command options:

       · batchSize: An int32 representing number of documents requested to be  returned  on  each
         call to mongoc_change_stream_next

       · resumeAfter:  A  Document  representing the logical starting point of the change stream.
         The _id field  of any change received from a change stream can be used here. This option
         is mutually exclusive with startAfter and startAtOperationTime.

       · startAfter:  A  Document  representing  the logical starting point of the change stream.
         Unlike resumeAfter, this can resume notifications after an "invalidate" event.  The  _id
         field   of  any  change  received from a change stream can be used here.  This option is
         mutually exclusive with resumeAfter and startAtOperationTime.

       · startAtOperationTime: A Timestamp. The change stream only provides changes that occurred
         at  or  after the specified timestamp. Any command run against the server will return an
         operation time that can be used here. This option is mutually exclusive with resumeAfter
         and startAfter.

       · maxAwaitTimeMS:   An   int64   representing  the  maximum  amount  of  time  a  call  to
         mongoc_change_stream_next will block waiting for data

       · fullDocument: A UTF-8 string. Set this option to "updateLookup"  to  direct  the  change
         stream  cursor  to  lookup  the  most current majority-committed version of the document
         associated to an update change stream event.

RETURNS

       A    newly    allocated    mongoc_change_stream_t    which    must    be    freed     with
       mongoc_change_stream_destroy when no longer in use. The returned mongoc_change_stream_t is
       never   NULL.    If    there    is    an    error,    it    can    be    retrieved    with
       mongoc_change_stream_error_document,  and  subsequent  calls  to mongoc_change_stream_next
       will return false.
