What exactly does "Introspect database" with database?


I am connected to a server that contains several databases. The name of the server is displayed on my left, but databases and tables are not displayed. There is also no autocomplete of table names. If I click "Introspect database", will it affect the database in any way (I really don't want to break it). Will there be an autofill option?

Please see: https://www.jetbrains.com/help/datagrip/schemas.html#objects-from-system-catalogs-in-coding-assistance to get more details about introspection process.

It doesn't affect the database, it loads the metadata to detect database elements.

Yes, completion for table and other names will be availabe after introspection.

Hope it helps.
