Stores one counter for items, one for properties, and one for lexemes stored in the wikibase repository. Other types of entities could be added in the future.



  • The value of the counter; this is used to get a new unique id for the next new item or property or lexeme entry created.
  • e.g. on Wikidata (at time of writing), wikibase-item has a value of 66087621 and wikibase-property has a value of 7130.


Example values:

  • wikibase-item
  • wikibase-property
  • wikibase-lexeme

Wikidata's table in production currently contains only these three rows.
