PAW Content Store

Post by tm123 » Thu Jan 14, 2021 1:53 am

Hey guys,

Does anyone here know where are the Views, Books and other Workspace Content stored physically? In IBM Documentation, they talk about Workspace Content Store, but I could not find any information about what this Content Store is. Is it in file system, or is it something buried into docker container.

Thanks

- Yes. PAW has 2 DB containers - MongoDB and CouchDB. I'm almost sure that the content store is on MongoDB

Thank you,

I have seen MongoDB in the list of PAW Services, but is there any client tool that can be used to read this type of Database?

I doubt you want this...
  1. Select MongoDB client you like
  2. Manage to connect to MongoDB located in Docker container. Just an example: https://forums.docker.com/t/how-mongodb ... b/44763/19
  3. MongoDB is a NoSQL database. If you are not familiar with it, it could be a challenge
  4. The database structure and it objects' names can be uninterpretable (like Cognos content store tables CMOBJPROPS16)
