Description and parameters

 array arFields

Method adds a new iblock. You can modify fields, as well as cancel creating an iblock by adding an event handler OnBeforeIBlockAdd. On successfully added iblock, calls the event handlers OnAfterIBlockAdd. Non-static method.


arFields Array("field"=>"value", ...). Contains values for iblock's [link=90637#fiblock]all fields[/link].

Additionally, the field SITE_ID must contain array with site IDs with associated added iblock.

In addition to this, you can assign iblock access permissions (see. [link=90643]CIBlock[/link]::[link=90651]SetPermission()[/link]) for various groups using the field "GROUP_ID", containing the array with group codes matching access permissions.

When the field "FIELDS", is set, executes the iblock field settings (see. [link=126629]CIBlock::SetFields[/link]).

Additionally, the field "VERSION", defining the method of storage for iblock element properties (1 - in general table | 2 - in a separate). Accepts value 1 by default.

When required to add an iblock with workflow support, indicate two additional fields: BIZPROC, receiving value Y, and WORKFLOW, receiving value N.
