IndexedDB manager

Use the Debugger IndexedDB tab to inspect and manage the structured data stored locally on a client machine. Specifically, you can inspect/sort and refresh your object stores and indices, and also delete individual key-value entries.

Tip

You can use our Audio Mixer demo to test drive the IndexedDB manager in Microsoft Edge DevTools.

To delete all the IndexedDB data stored for the current user in Microsoft Edge, use the Microsoft Edge Settings menu:

... > Settings > Clear browsing data > Cookies and saved website data

The IndexedDB folder inside the Debugger's Resource picker displays a list of origins from the resources loaded by the page. Any IndexedDB (IDB) databases will be listed under the origin, along with their object stores.

DevTools IndexedDB manager

IndexedDB Toolbar

From the IndexedDB toolbar you can:

  • Refresh (Ctrl+F5) to see the current entries in the object store or index of your database. The IndexedDB manager does not auto-refresh when changes are made to your database.

Object store entries list

From the Object store or Index table you can:

  • Inspect and sort your key-value pairs by clicking on any column name in the table.
  • Refresh (Ctrl+F5)
  • Delete item (Del) to remove the selected entry in your object store or index. You can also do this from the right-click context menu option, Delete item.
  • Copy selected items (Ctrl+C) to copy the selected item to your clipboard. You can also do this from the right-click context menu option, Copy selected item.
  • Select all (Ctrl+A) to select all the entries in your object store or index. You can also do this from the right-click context menu option, Select all.

The columns of the Object store or Index table are sortable:

Column Description
Key Name of the key-value pair (same as Primary Key) when iterating over an object store; Name of the index key (cursor's current key) when iterating over an index
Primary Key Name of the key-value pair (see MDN web docs for more on IDB keys)
Value Value of the key-value pair

Check out MDN web docs for more on IndexedDB concepts and usage.

In addition to the IndexedDB toolbar, you can also manage your data in object stores or indices from the right-click Context menu and/or the keyboard shortcuts.
