Bucket creation.

I still have a question. Based on your input I modified the code slightly as


            RiakBucketProperties bucketProperties = new






            if (!client.SetBucketProperties("buyseasons/products",


                Console.WriteLine("Setting bucket properties failed");


            RiakResult<RiakBucketProperties> riakBuckpropertiesResult =
client.GetBucketProperties("buyseasons/products", true);


But I get a NullReferenceException


  at CorrugatedIron.Models.RiakBucketProperties.ReadQuorum(JObject props,
String key, Action`1 setter)

   at CorrugatedIron.Models.RiakBucketProperties..ctor(RiakRestResponse

   at CorrugatedIron.RiakClient.GetBucketProperties(String bucket, Boolean

. . . . .


So the bucket should have been created when I set the properties. But then I
tried to read the properties back and I get the exception.

"buckets" are a virtual concept. you dont need to "create" them. just write
a key to any bucket. also by modifying the default bucket parameters, by
adding the search hook on a bucket, let's say, you are also "creating" the

I have filed to find code that would create a bucket. It must be in the past
I have just put objects into a bucket and Riak must construct the bucket if
it does not exist. Now I would like to create the bucket and set some
properties on that bucket. But I don't know how to create the bucket.


So I have code like:


                            BuildProduct(source, destination);

                            RiakObject value = new RiakObject("products",
keySku, JsonConvert.SerializeObject(destination))


                                    ContentType = "application/json"



                            RiakResult<RiakObject> response =
client.Put(value, new RiakPutOptions { W = 2 });


But I would like to create the bucket and set properties on the bucket
before I put things into the bucket. Like:


            RiakResult<RiakBucketProperties> riakBuckpropertiesResult =
client.GetBucketProperties("products", true);

            if (riakBuckpropertiesResult.IsSuccess)










The problem is that the properties that I want to set are for a bucket that
doesn't exist yet so the "get" fails.
