Model Class Update Functions boolean model

Gets an object based on the arguments used and updates it with the supplied properties. Returns true if an object was found and updated successfully, false otherwise.

Name Type Required Default Description
where string No Maps to the WHERE clause of the query (or HAVING when necessary). The following operators are supported: =, !=, <>, <, <=, >, >=, LIKE, NOT LIKE, IN, NOT IN, IS NULL, IS NOT NULL, AND, and OR (note that the key words need to be written in upper case). You can also use parentheses to group statements. You do not need to specify the table name(s); CFWheels will do that for you.
order string No Maps to the ORDER BY clause of the query. You do not need to specify the table name(s); CFWheels will do that for you.
properties struct No [runtime expression] The properties you want to set on the object (can also be passed in as named arguments).
reload boolean No false Set to true to force CFWheels to query the database even though an identical query for this model may have been run in the same request. (The default in CFWheels is to get the second query from the model's request-level cache.)
validate boolean No true Set to false to skip validations for this operation.
transaction string No [runtime expression] Set this to commit to update the database, rollback to run all the database queries but not commit them, or none to skip transaction handling altogether.
callbacks boolean No true Set to false to disable callbacks for this method.
includeSoftDeletes boolean No false
// Sets the `new` property to `1` on the most recently released product
result = model("product").updateOne(order="releaseDate DESC", new=1);

// If you have a `hasOne` association setup from `user` to `profile`, you can do a scoped call. (The `removeProfile` method below will call `model("profile").updateOne(where="", userId="")` internally.)
aUser = model("user").findByKey(params.userId);
