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


This function returns the ID for the specified database from the configuration. The difference between this function and xdmp:database() is that the ID from this function can come from a database that has not yet been saved (that is, from a database that has been created in the same query with the Admin library but has not yet been saved to the cluster configuration files). This ID enables you to completely configure a newly created database without the need to first save the configuration.

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