This structure contains the options that may be used for tuning a specific index.

See the createIndexes documentations in the MongoDB manual for descriptions of individual options.


dropDups is deprecated as of MongoDB version 3.0.0. This option is silently ignored by the server and unique index builds using this option will fail if a duplicate value is detected.
