Below is an example of using the SaveAsync method. Here, session is the Session instance.

Person personToUpdate = await session.FindObjectAsync<Person>(CriteriaOperator.Parse("Name='Michael Suyama'"));
personToUpdate.Birthday = new DateTime(1986, 10, 31);
await session.SaveAsync(personToUpdate);

The SaveAsync method also saves all the referenced objects that are aggregated (see the AggregatedAttribute topic for information) and any referenced newly created non-aggregated objects that don’t yet exist in the data store.
