Where indextype is one of the following:

  • bitmap — a bitmap index

  • bitslice — a bitslice index

  • index — a standard index (default)

  • key — deprecated

Details

This keyword specifies the type of the index, specifically whether the index is implemented as a bitmap index or a standard (regular, non-bitmap) index.

A bitmap index cannot be marked as unique.

If you omit this keyword, the index is a standard index.
