So I have a problem, and a few leads on how to fix it. I need help figuring out which one will actually work, and how to execute it.
I'm programming in GoLang and using the
mgo package to interact with MongoDB. At a basic level, I need to insert an entry into a collection in Mongo and also have access to that entry's ObjectID.
My first solution would be to search for the entry that matches all the data that I just inserted, but there may be duplicates. I need the EXACT entry.
Second, I would make a field in each entry that's unique, but I don't want useless data in there and I'm also running this concurrently, which can cause problems if I'm trying to make things unique yadda yadda.
Third, there's a
NewObjectID() function in
mgo, but I don't know how to ensure that it's a Unique ID.
Is there potential in any of these leads or how else can I tackle this?
