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 "
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
To check what mode you are in, enter this command:
misc get runs_db
