This function inserts triples into a specified database as one or more sem:triples documents. It also creates graph metadata for the graph specified by the "graph" or "override-graph=URI" option. This is an update function that returns the document URIs of inserted documents.

$triples The triples to insert.
$options Insertion options. Valid options values include:
The graph/context value to give to every quad, whether specified in the data or not.
The database directory path.
$permissions Security permission elements corresponding to the permissions for the document.
$collections Additional collections to set on inserted documents. If you use the collections argument when inserting triples, no graph document will be created for these collections.
$quality The quality setting for inserted documents.
$forest-ids The forest IDs to use for inserted documents.

Usage Notes

Using additional collections with sem:rdf-insert in the context of SPARQL Update can result in undefined behavior.
