Hi - fairly new to using Mendix platform and bumped into a small issue. I created my own entity in the domain model and I am able to do the CRUD operations through the user interface.

Can somebody tell me what the correct way to populate the database with data is (where else do I need to publish the identifiers)? I am looking to use direct SQL statements, not using an SDK (that Mendix might provide)...
