Usage Notes

Any group or database whose ID you pass into this function must exist when the transaction begins, otherwise an exception is thrown. If you need to create the group and/or database, do so in a separate transaction before using them in in this function.


  const admin = require('/MarkLogic/admin.xqy');
  const config = admin.getConfiguration()
  const groupid = admin.groupGetId(config, "myGroup")
  admin.webdavServerCreate(config, groupid, "myNewAppServer",
        "/space/mycode", 8005, xdmp.database("myDatabase") )

   //returns the new configuration element -- use admin.saveConfiguration
   //to save the changes to the configuration or pass the configuration
   //to other Admin API functions to make other changes.
