Suppress error upon CREATE of a previously existing index.


[SQL]    DDLNo324=n

n is either 1 or 0. The default value is 0.


When DDLNo324 is enabled (n = 1), when an attempt is made to CREATE a previously existing index, InterSystems IRIS® data platform suppresses the SQLCODE -324 error.

For further details, refer to the CREATE INDEX command.

Changing This Parameter

On the SQL page of the Management Portal (System Administration > Configuration > SQL and Object Settings > SQL), select Ignore redundant DDL statements to suppress redundant SQLCODE errors.

You can also change DDLNo324 with the Config.SQL class (as described in the class reference) or by editing the CPF in a text editor (as described in the Editing the Active CPF section of the “Introduction to the Configuration Parameter File” chapter in this book).
