Does anyone have a data dictionary for Kace K1000?

I have gotten no where with their support on acquiring one.  We need to understand what is in the SQL tables in order to start writing custom reports.  Dell support refuses to admit that one exists.

  • Sorry that did not help you. Do you have an end goal in mind or are you more looking to explore the DB?

  • No it does not help. Those are essentially just a list of all the items in the SQL database. A data dictionary would contain the field name, the type of data it was, and a definition or description of what that field does. What you provided just tells me what the fields are which is pointless if I don't know what the field does.

The short answer is that there isn't one, at least as far as I know.

If you would like to see one created, submit it here: http://kace.uservoice.com/forums/82699-k1000

  • So KACE engineers are able to build a develop a product around SQL without knowing what each field is? These are some brilliant engineers....or maybe that's why each release of KACE has so many problems with it.

    Every software product I have ever implemented that is based on SQL as a backend, has a data dictionary.
    • I can't speak for the KACE developers, they may have a data dictionary, but if so, it's not available externally.

      It's something that I've seen requested many times. That's why I suggested submitting it on uservoice. If enough people vote on it, perhaps one will be made available.
      • I have gotten nowhere with uservoice (that system is another joke). That is why I am seeking out other professionals who may have written one themselves. Dell has not been able to help with anything.
  • ...and the data dictionary is made available to the customer that has to eventually support the product.
