Collection Settings

The Settings tab contains the following fields:

Collection Details

  • Collection Name - The name set at collection creation. Cannot be changed.
  • Collection ID - System-generated ID of the selected collection.
  • Distribution - Global or local, defined at collection creation. For more information, refer to Global or Local Collections.
  • Data Model - Type of data that the collection accepts, either document or edge.
  • Strong Consistency - Indicates whether this collection has strong consistency guarantees. For more information, refer to Strong Consistency.

Collection Details Section

Collection Stream

This section is not in Redis Mode collection settings.


Streams are enabled and disabled on a per-region basis, not a per-fabric basis. This means that when you toggle streams on or off, that selection only applies to the location displayed at the top of the side menu. You must change location and repeat the selection to apply the change to other locations.

  • Stream Enabled - Click to turn streams on or off for this collection. When streams are enabled, you can access the Stream tab.
  • Stream Name - The name of the collection stream.
  • Replication - Whether the stream is replicated globally or locally.
  • WebSocket URL - The WebSocket connection to the collection stream allows you to interact with the stream in real-time. This connection allows you to receive live updates as documents are added, updated, or removed from the collection.
