ReQL command: close

Command syntax

cursor.close() → promise


Close a cursor. Closing a cursor cancels the corresponding query and frees the memory associated with the open request.

The close command can optionally take a callback, which will receive an error if one occurs, or return a promise which will be resolved when the connection is closed.

Example: Close a cursor.

cursor.close(function (err) {
    if (err) {
        console.log("An error occurred on cursor close");

Example: Close a cursor and execute a function upon close.

    .then(function () {
        console.log("The cursor has been closed");
    .catch(r.Error.ReqlDriverError, function (err) {
        console.log("An error occurred on cursor close");
