   $config as element(configuration),
   $database-id as xs:unsignedLong,
   $value as xs:string
) as element(configuration)


This function sets the locking setting for the specified database in the configuration. When set to strict, locking enforces mutual exclusion on existing documents and on new documents. When set to fast, locking enforces mutual exclusion on existing documents but not on new documents. When set to off, locking does not enforce mutual exclusion on existing documents or on new documents.

config A configuration specification, typically as returned from one of the Admin module functions.
database-id The ID of the database (for example, xdmp:database("myDatabase")).
value The new locking value. Must be one of strict, fast, or off.
