This article provides Python sample codes for creating or droping collections.

Create a collection

  1. Prepare the parameters needed to create the collection:

    # Prepare collection parameters
    >>> param = {'collection_name':'test01', 'dimension':256, 'index_file_size':1024, 'metric_type':MetricType.L2}
  2. Create a collection named test01, with a dimension of 256 and an index file size of 1024 MB. It uses Euclidean distance (L2) as the distance measurement method.

    # Create a collection
    >>> milvus.create_collection(param)

Drop a collection

# Drop collection
>>> milvus.drop_collection(collection_name='test01')
