Hi Saurabh,

The protocols buffers interface does not currently support server side
generated keys. Bug 485 has been filed for this issue:
https://issues.basho.com/show_bug.cgi?id=485

In the mean time you can generate a unique key on the client side. You can
use the code on the server side as a reference for generating unique keys:

Thanks,
Dan
