I see the command there, but the docs describe NoImport.

If this is a global command, the databases wouldn't need to be specified.

Quoting mvdocs.pod line 13185

When set to one or more Interchange database identifiers,
those database(s) will never be subject to import. Useful for SQL
databases, or databases that will *never* change.

        NoImportExternal Yes
