DataGrip 2022.3 Help

Database objects list in the database tree is not accurate

Introspection is the process during which the IDE retrieves information about a database. This information is used to show the objects in the Database Explorer, display their DDL, suggest them during completion, and in other features for code assistance.

To profile the introspection and diagnose possible issues, DataGrip can generate three files that include information about the following:

  • dataSource.txt: the data source.

  • introspector.txt: a module that was used to load the metadata from the database.

  • model.xml: a part of the database model.

This information might be helpful when introspection works incorrectly. For example, when you see something outdated or do not see new objects.

Run an introspection profiling

  1. Right-click a data source and navigate to Diagnostics | Prepare Introspector Diagnostics.

  2. Find the three generated files in the file browser window or by clicking their location link in the notification message.
