Multi-predicate upsert?

Hi All,

Is it possible to use more than one predicate as an input to upsert? For example, modifying the example at, would it be possible to consider more than one predicate as a criteria for the upsert? Say we need “Steven Spielberg” in more than one namespace…can we do something like the following to get more specific?

  a as var(func: eq(Name, "Steven Spielberg")) @filter(eq(Namespace, "Different Domain")) @upsert

mutation {
  set {
    uid(a) <age> "70" .

This isn’t possible at the moment. You should get back an error message saying "Upsert query cannot have filters.".

If this functionality is something you would find useful, please raise a github issue and we can take a closer look.

Got it - thanks. I’ll sit on this one for now because I’m not sure yet if I really need the feature. I will submit an issue later after I’ve worked more on the use case if I think it would add a lot of value.

We’re adding support for transactions.

Once they’re released in v0.9, you can achieve what you need easily without upsert. For that matter, there won’t be any upserts in v0.9; because txns would provide a super set of upsert functionality.
