Is it possible to unnest a database?

I would like to know if it is possible to make a child database to become a top level database. How could this be done and would this cause repercussions?

This is not possible without intervention from Fauna support staff.

The MoveDatabase function can move a database to be the child of another database, but it is not possible to make the moved database a top-level database with that function.

If you do move a database, using existing scoped keys to access the database could stop working. Keys and tokens used to access the moved database would be unaffected.

Thanks for asking the question! I’ve filed an issue to expand the documentation’s coverage of MoveDatabase to address your questions.
