Selecting a Database Mode

The data generated in InTime is saved in a highly portable encrypted database file named "intimeruns.db". By default, InTime runs in "user" mode. The alternative is "project" mode.

User mode versus Project mode

The key difference between User and Project modes is where the InTime database file is stored. This mode also affects your ability to view and use the data and insights that InTime accumulates.

In User mode, the database file is saved within the "/.plunify/" folder structure. All InTime-generated data is saved inside but by default, only data belonging to the currently-opened project will be visible in the InTime Client GUI.

A user may have many different projects and may wish to keep the data in a single static database, inaccessible by other users.

In contrast, the Project mode enables this database file to be created (if not already present) under the FPGA project folder. This enables users to use source revision control, e.g. git, on the database file and have individual database files for different projects. Any user with sufficient file permissions will thus be able to access the database.

Switching Database Modes

To switch to Project mode, enter this command in the Tcl Console:

misc set runs_db project

Or to User mode:

misc set runs_db user

Check Mode

To check what mode you are in, enter this command:

misc get runs_db
