Koha E-R diagrams and tables information

Status

It is not easy to understand the Koha 3.0 DB structure. In fact you need to read the Koha code to understand all tables .CILEA wants to improve the situation by writing more technical documentation about the Koha 3.0 DB


Actions

Starting from all documentation avaible from wiki and koha-dev list we start to write complete E-R diagrams for Koha DB and a specific document for every table

We write:

  • a general description of the table,
  • a specific description of every field (name, lenght, type, data inserted, constrains)
  • a specific description of every index
  • a list of the foreign keys of the table

We drow also a general E-R schema of the DB

The informatiom will be update to version 3.0 stable (3.00.00.107)
