sp_db_selective_xml_index (Transact-SQL)

Applies to: yesSQL Server (all supported versions)

Enables and disables Selective XML Index functionality on a SQL Server database. If called without any parameters, the stored procedure returns 1 if the Selective XML Index is enabled on a particular database.

Note

Starting with SQL Server 2014 (12.x), the Selective XML Index functionality cannot be disabled. This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature. In SQL Server 2012 (11.x), in order to disable the Selective XML Index feature using this stored procedure, the database must be put in the SIMPLE recovery model by using the ALTER DATABASE SET Options (Transact-SQL) command.
