List unique keys and indexes in DB2 database

Query below returns all primary keys and unique constraints on tables in IBM DB2 database.

Check out also list of unique keys.

    tab.constname as constraint_name,
    case when tab.type = 'P' then 'PRIMARY KEY'

        when 'BLOK' then 'Block index'
        when 'REG' then 'Regular index'
        when 'CPMA' then 'Page map index for a column-organized table'
        when 'RCT ' then 'Key sequence index for a range-clustered table'
        when 'CLUS' then 'Clustering index'
        when 'TEXT' then 'Text index'
        when 'DIM' then 'Dimension block index'

  • table_name - name of the table with schema name
  • constraint_name - constraint name of primary key or unique constraint
  • constraint_type - type of the constraint
    • UNIQUE
  • columns - columns separated with ","
  • index_name - name of index used by constraint
  • index_type - type of index:
    • Block index
    • Regular index
    • Page map index for a column-organized table
    • Key sequence index for a range-clustered table
    • Clustering index
    • Text index
    • Dimension block index
    • XML path index
    • XML region index
    • Index over XML column (logical)
    • Index over XML column (physical)


  • One row represents one constraint in the database.
  • Scope of rows: all PKs, and unique constraints
  • Ordered by schema and table name
