CreateDocDB defines a document database. InterSystems IRIS® creates that document database when processing the [Actions] section during a configuration merge. You can specify any possible document database properties in the CreateDocDB definition. During the merge, InterSystems IRIS runs Security.DocDBs.Create()Opens in a new tab to create the document database defined by CreateDocDB. Only the Name and Enabled properties are required; the complete list of properties is available in the class reference.
