Subject Returning A Generated Id From An Insert
Date Tue, 26 Mar 2013 19:42:13 GMT

I have a question on if I could do something in Cassandra similar to
what I can do in SQL.

In SQL (e.g. SQL Server), if I have a generated primary key, I can get
the generated primary key
back as a result for the insert statement.

Is it possible to do something similar with CQL (e.g. could I be
returned the generated timeuuid from
now() somehow?). It certainly makes my client code cleaner if this
were possible (it is a "nice to have").

thanks in advance,
