 my $store = Catmandu::Store::MongoDB->new(
            database_name => 'test' ,
            bags => {
                data => {
                plugins => [qw(Datestamps)]
            }
        });
 $store->bag->add({
        '_id'  => '123',

DESCRIPTION

The Catmandu::Plugin::Datestamps plugin automatically adds/updates datestamp fields in your records. If you add this plugin to your Catmandu::Store configuration then automatically a 'date_created' and 'date_updated' field gets added to newly ingested records.
The plugin should be set for every bag defined in your Catmandu::Store. In the examples above we've set the plugin to the default bag 'data' that is created in every Catmandu::Store.
In Catmandu::Store-s that don't have a dynamic schema (e.g. Solr, DBI) these new date fields should be predefined (e.g by changing the schema.xml or tables fields).

CONFIGURATION

datestamp_created_key
Field name where the creation date is stored. Defaults to 'date_created'. Also aliased as "datestamp_created_field".
datestamp_updated_key
Field name where the update date is stored. Defaults to 'date_updated'. Also aliased as "datestamp_updated_field".
datestamp_format
Use a custom "strftime" format. See Catmandu::Util::now for possible format values.
 
    my $store = Catmandu::Store::MyDB->new(bags => {book => {plugins =>
        ['Datestamps'], datestamp_format => '%Y/%m/%d'}});
    my $store = Catmandu::Store::MyDB->new(bags => {book => {plugins =>
        ['Datestamps'], datestamp_format => 'iso_date_time_millis'}});
