Does nvault_pset literally update a key without a timestamp or does it still set a timestamp but a permanent one? I want to know whether I can update a key with nvault_pset which has been created (previously set) with nvault_set, but without touching its timestamp.

All pset does is set the timestamp to 0, so there is no timestamp on permanent records.

Really? Pity you couldn't do the opposite of nvault_touch; Updating the key's data without touching its timestamp...

The fact that the timestamp is 0 makes it a permanent record. There is no separate field in a vault record that would allow both a timestamp and permanent status. So you can make a set record permanent by touching it with 0.

I don't believe I've made myself clear enough. I want to update the key's data without changing its current timestamp. I assumed nvault_pset would not touch the key's timestamp at all instead of actually setting it to 0 making it permanent.

So what you need to do is use nvault_lookup() which allows you to get the current timestamp. Then call set or pset, followed by a touch using the timestamp retrieved with lookup.

Jeez, all this time no one really bothered turning all of that improvisation into one nvault_update ish method? Confusing at first glance, let alone never came to mind. As long as It's possible to achieve my goal, It's good. Thanks! Haven't tested it, yet.

If you're touching the data the timestamp should theoretically reflect that.

PHP Code:
#include <amxmodx>
#include <nvault>

new gVault;

public 
plugin_init() {
    
    
register_plugin("nVault Update Test""1.0""Cram");
    
    
gVault nvault_open("nvault_update-test");
    
    
register_clcmd("nvault_set""CmdSet");
    
register_clcmd("nvault_get""CmdGet");
    
register_clcmd("nvault_update""CmdUpdate");
}

public 
plugin_end() {
    
    
nvault_close(gVault);
}

public 
CmdSet(id) {
    
    new 
szArgv[16];
    
read_argv(1szArgvcharsmax(szArgv));
    
    
SetVaultData(idszArgv);
    
    
console_print(id"^n[NVAULT SET]^nSaved data to nVault:^n%s^n"szArgv);
    
    return 
PLUGIN_HANDLED;
}

public 
CmdGet(id) {
    
    new 
szAuthID[32], szData[16], iTimeStamp;
    
    
get_user_authid(idszAuthIDcharsmax(szAuthID));
    
    if(
nvault_lookup(gVaultszAuthIDszDatacharsmax(szData), iTimeStamp))
        
console_print(id"^n[NVAULT GET]^nData: %s^nTimestamp: %d^n"szDataiTimeStamp);
    else
        
console_print(id"^n[NVAULT GET] No data found.^n");
        
    return 
PLUGIN_HANDLED;
}

public 
CmdUpdate(id) {
    
    new 
szAuthID[32], szData[16], iTimeStampszArgv[16];
    
    
get_user_authid(idszAuthIDcharsmax(szAuthID));
    
read_argv(1szArgvcharsmax(szArgv));
    
    if(
nvault_lookup(gVaultszAuthIDszDatacharsmax(szData), iTimeStamp)) {
        
        
nvault_pset(gVaultszAuthIDszArgv);
        
nvault_touch(gVaultszAuthIDiTimeStamp);
        
        
console_print(id"^n[NVAULT UPDATE]^nUpdated data in nVault:^nOld Value: %s^nNew Value: %s^n"szDataszArgv);
    }
    else {
        
        
SetVaultData(idszArgv);
        
        
console_print(id"^n[NVAULT UPDATE] No initial data found to update.^nSet new data instead.^n");
    }
    
    return 
PLUGIN_HANDLED;
}

SetVaultData(idszData[]) {
    
    new 
szAuthID[32];
    
    
get_user_authid(idszAuthIDcharsmax(szAuthID));
    
    
nvault_set(gVaultszAuthIDszData);
    
    return 
PLUGIN_HANDLED;

Worked fine for me. Timestamp remains the same when using Update instead of Set for the second time.
