Magento: what is table eav_entity for?

I know EAV logic and I know what is eav_entity_attribute for. (about eav_entity_* - the same). But I'm not clear about table eav_entity. It is always empty.

Could someone give some comments please. I would be glad to get any assumption.

Google gives nothing on this question, as usual)

Re: Magento: what is table eav_entity for?

Hi @jeri_k 

While searching in Magento Core Code i found out that eav_entity table is mentioned in confix.xml and in DB setup you can check this in below path:


But thing is they declared it but never used it  may be the devs go with other that is  the reason it's  empty. the approach what dev is to define eav type and their respective table like for customer,order,sales etc. and use them directly.

For more information about this you can go through The purpose of 'eav_' tables here this can help you for better understanding.
