   config as element(configuration),
   forest-name as String
) as (Number|String)


This function returns the ID of the forest with the specified name, from the specified configuration. The difference between this function and xdmp:forest() is that the ID from this function can come from a forest that has not yet been saved (that is, from a forest that has been created in the same query with the Admin library but has not yet been saved to the cluster configuration files).

config A configuration specification, typically as returned from one of the Admin module functions.
forest-name The name of the forest.
