From the databases list view, click the 'New database' button.
2. Database Name
Enter Database Name
A database name can be any sequence of letters, digits, and characters that match the regex: [ _ \ - \ . ]+
A name cannot exceed 128 characters
Spaces are not allowed
If the name contains ., there must be some other character on both sides.
3. Configure Replication
Set the number of nodes that will contain this database.
The minimum required number is 1.
The maximum number is the cluster size (number of nodes in the cluster).
Dynamic Database Distribution
Upon a node failure, and if this option is checked, the RavenDB server will automatically replicate the database content to another available node in the cluster,
(one that doesn't already contain the database) so that replication factor is maintained.
Setting Replication Nodes Manually
Select the specific initial replication nodes from the cluster for the database to replicate to.
If no node is checked, then the replication nodes will be selected randomly from the cluster.
4. Configure Path
Set the directory path for database data.
You can use any of the following options:
Full path (e.g. Windows: C:/MyWork/MyDatabaseFolder, Linux: /etc/MyWork/MyDatabaseFolder )
The database will be created in this physical location
Relative path (e.g. MyWork/MyDatabaseFolder)
The database will be created under the DataDir folder
Leave field empty
The Database will be created in Databases directory under the DataDir folder
The DataDir folder can be set in the settings.json configuration file (e.g. "DataDir": "RavenData").
If DataDir is Not specified in the configuration file, then the database will be created under the RavenDB binaries folder
(where the RavenDB dlls are located).
A path can't start with: $home, '~' or 'appdrive:'
