AZ-204 – Question 81

You have an Azure Web app that uses Cosmos DB as a data store. You create a CosmosDB container by running the following PowerShell script:
$resourceGroupName = "testResourceGroup"
$accountName = "testCosmosAccount"
$databaseName = "testDatabase"
$containerName = "testContainer"
$partitionKeyPath = "/EmployeeId"
$autoscaleMaxThroughput = 5000

New-AzCosmosDBSqlContainer –
-ResourceGroupName $resourceGroupName
-AccountName $accountName
-DatabaseName $databaseName
-Name $containerName
-PartitionKeyKind Hash
-PartitionKeyPath $partitionKeyPath
-AutoscaleMaxThroughput $autoscaleMaxThroughput
You create the following queries that target the container:
SELECT * FROM c WHERE c.EmployeeId > ‘12345’
SELECT * FROM c WHERE c.UserID = ‘12345’
For each of the following statements, select Yes if the statement is true. Otherwise, select No.
NOTE: Each correct selection is worth one point.

Correct Answer: 

Box 1: No –
You set the highest, or maximum RU/s Tmax you don’t want the system to exceed. The system automatically scales the throughput T such that 0.1* Tmax <= T <=
In this example we have autoscaleMaxThroughput = 5000, so the minimum throughput for the container is 500 R/Us.

Box 2: No –
First query: SELECT * FROM c WHERE c.EmployeeId > ‘12345’
Here’s a query that has a range filter on the partition key and won’t be scoped to a single physical partition. In order to be an in-partition query, the query must have an equality filter that includes the partition key:
SELECT * FROM c WHERE c.DeviceId > ‘XMS-0001’

Box 3: Yes –
Example of In-partition query:
Consider the below query with an equality filter on DeviceId. If we run this query on a container partitioned on DeviceId, this query will filter to a single physical partition.
SELECT * FROM c WHERE c.DeviceId = ‘XMS-0001’
