We are using RAA v6.0.0. One of the customizations that is being explored, is to tag all components with their respective owning teams.
RAA provides UI option to annotate the components, but this needs to be done 1-by-1 & is time consuming for an inventory size of 50-60 K.
Hence, we thought of annotating the parent applications and automatically cascade the same across the components of this particular application, by means of triggers on DMH database tables.
We have been able to relate DMH_APPL_CMPNT table & DMH_CHAR_PROPERTY to cascade this information for cmpnt_type = 9.
For DB2 tables, it seemed easier to annotate the Database & let the component Tables under that particular DB adopt the same annotain as DB - again, by use of triggers \ queries on DMH DB.
How can this be done?
We have the relation between application, Database and DB2 table name mapping ready.
When trying to use any of the DMH_DB2% or DMH_SQL% tables, we see that these tables have the table name\Database information. We have the table id (DB_TABLE_ID) though, but that doesnt help, as we need the table name \ database name references to associate to application owners.
If there is a different way to do this, do let us know.

Where are DB2 table names (used in applications) stored in DMH DB?

For example, a table named ABC in schema XYZ in location DEF would be stored as:
1) FULLNAME = DEF.XYZ.ABC
2) NAME = ABC
3) CREATOR = XYZ
4) LOCATION = DEF
The actual text of the name is stored in the DMH_SYMBOL table. Joining any of these xxxx_SYM_ID columns with the SYMBOL_ID column in that table will give you the name from the SYMBOL_TEXT column.
CREATE TABLE DMH_DB2_TABLE ( DB2_TABLE_ID INTEGER NOT NULL, DB2_SUBSYSTEM_ID INTEGER NOT NULL, FULLNAME_SYM_ID INTEGER NOT NULL, NAME_SYM_ID INTEGER NOT NULL, CREATOR_SYM_ID INTEGER NOT NULL WITH DEFAULT, LOCATION_SYM_ID INTEGER NOT NULL WITH DEFAULT, CMPNT_TYPE_ID SMALLINT NOT NULL, PRIMARY KEY ( DB2_TABLE_ID ) )
