	"timestamp": firestore.ServerTimestamp,
}, firestore.MergeAll)
if err != nil {
	// Handle any errors in an appropriate way, such as returning them.
	log.Printf("An error has occurred: %s", err)


DocumentReference docRef = db.collection("objects").document("some-id");
// Update the timestamp field with the value from the server
ApiFuture<WriteResult> writeResult = docRef.update("timestamp", FieldValue.serverTimestamp());
System.out.println("Update time : " + writeResult.get());


// Get the `FieldValue` object
const FieldValue = admin.firestore.FieldValue;

// Create a document reference
const docRef = db.collection('objects').doc('some-id');

// Update the timestamp field with the value from the server
const res = await docRef.update({
  timestamp: FieldValue.serverTimestamp()


city_ref = db.collection(u'objects').document(u'some-id')
    u'timestamp': firestore.SERVER_TIMESTAMP


city_ref = firestore.doc "#{collection_path}/new-city-id"
city_ref.update({ timestamp: firestore.field_server_time })
