Ignored collections

Ignored collections will not include metadata, will not be filtered by version (they will appear identical in all versions) and will not be included in version proofs.

Application developers can use ignored collections to store data that is not required to be proved to the Blockchain.

You can create an ignored collection using the createIgnored command:

 db.runCommand({ createIgnored: ignoredCollectionName });

The ignored collection must not already exist.

Collections whose name ends in ‘pdbignore’ will be also be ignored by ProvenDB.
