InterSystems: The power behind what matters   

Define InterSystems IRIS namespaces.
[Namespaces]    Name=globals,routines,temporary
Each entry provides three comma-separated values that define a namespace. Only the first field is required. If the other fields are not specified, they are set to the system default. From left to right:
Globals starting with a % are mapped to IRISSYS unless mapped to another database by a user defined mapping.
In all namespaces, routine and classes that start with a % come from the IRISLIB database with the following exceptions:
Note that routines that reside in the IRISSYS database have special security privileges including the ability to modify the roles and other security attributes of the process executing them.
InterSystems IRIS adds entries to the CPF file automatically as you add and configure namespaces using the Management Portal (see the instructions below).
In the [Namespaces] section, each entry appears all on one line:

; Globals and routines/classes split into separate databases.
; Globals and routines/classes in the same database, 
; temporary globals are mapped to the databases TEMPDATA
Range of Values
