Help:Sequence map


The sequence map1 is a feature added with Semantic MediaWiki 3.1.0Released on 23 September 2019 and compatible with MW 1.31.0 - 1.33.x. and can assign an attributive characteristic to a property so that annotated values do appear in the same sequence (order) during an output as there were added during the input.


Create a "PROPERTY_PROFILE_SCHEMA" schema that defines the sequence map.

    "profile": {
        "sequence_map": true
    "tags": [
        "property profile"

Following the creation of a profile schema, assign the profile to a property using the declarative Profile schema property. The specific profile is only created once and can be reused for other properties that want to make use of this feature.


Once a profile schema is added to a property with special property "Profile schema"Holds the name of a profile schema which declares characteristics for annotations maintenance script "rebuildData.php"Allows to rebuild all the semantic data for a selected data backend/store has to be run as this requires to build up the new database table "smw_object_aux" with it's field "smw_seqmap" from the ground.2

Technical notes[edit]

A property with a "sequence map" attribute will signal to the Storage Engine to store an additional map of hashed values (see database table "smw_object_aux"3) together with their sequence so that annotated values can appear in the same order as there were annotated.
