Redis Sorted Sets: ZADD

Secondary Nav

ZADD key score1 member1 [score2 member2]

Redis ZADD command is used to add all the specified members with the specified scores to the sorted set stored at key. If a specified member is an existing member of the stored set, the score is updated and the element reinserted at the right position to ensure the correct ordering. A new sorted set with the specified members as sole members is created, when key dies not exists or the sorted set was empty. If the key exists but does not hold a sorted set, an error is returned.
