Name Constraints

The following sections use all uppercase to identify DDL keywords (such as STRING, CREATE TABLE, and so on). However, these keywords are actually case-insensitive and can be entered as lower-case.

The DDL keywords shown here are reserved and cannot be used as table, index or field names.

Table, index and field names are case-preserving, but case-insensitive. So you can, for example, create a field named MY_NAME, and later reference it as my_name without error. However, whenever the field name is displayed, it will display as MY_NAME.

Table and index names are limited to 32 characters. Field names can be 64 characters. All table, index and field names are restricted to alphanumeric characters, plus underscore ("_"). All names must start with a letter.
