    Hello,

    I am investigating the UIM database to understand how the information is stored.

    Here is the CM_GROUP_DYNAMIC table which shows some group definitions.

     

     

    grp_id 5 & 24 are interface groups.

     

    Do you know where are the :ca.Element/* data stored?

    I believe all of the interface information including alias is store in the

    datomic_kvs table.

     

    Hope this helps

    Hi Gene,

    unfortunately I am afraid that I can only find Hexa references in this table.

    The datomic_kvs table is not your typical SQL table - it's unlikely you will be able to glean any useful information from it.  It's not really intended to be interacted with by an end-user the way a normal SQL structured table is, there is a whole different query language and technology involved.

     

    You can read more about it here:  Datomic - Home

     

    Unfortunately, though, this probably won't help you much either - at this point, the Datomic data in UIM is pretty much a "black box" and there is no real visibility into the raw data for interfaces.
