Creating and deleting a database

Use one of the following methods to create a database. The New method does not create a database.

  • Create creates an uninitialized database. A script can access it, but a user cannot access it from the Notes® workspace because it has no forms or views.
  • CreateFromTemplate creates an initialized database based on an existing database (whether the database is a template or not). The new database has the design and documents of the template and can be accessed from the Notes® workspace.
  • CreateReplica creates an initialized replica of an existing database.
  • CreateCopy creates a copy of the design of an existing database.

Use one of the following methods to delete a database:

  • Remove immediately deletes a database.
  • MarkForDelete marks a database for deletion from a server on a cluster.
