Hello, I have indigo ros and I downloaded moveit to work with the graphical interface rviz, but when I want to save some state of the robot, a message says: "Not connected to a database. The state will be created but not stored". How can i solve this problem? Thanks.

I figured out how to fix this problem for me:

  1. Follow install steps for the ros warehouse .
  2. (You might not need this depending on your version of moveit) Make the changes in this pull request locally to fix moveit .
  3. Launch the ros warehouse! roslaunch <YOUR_GENERATED_moveit_config>/launch/default_warehouse_db.launch I got this file from the moveit setup wizard.

MoveIt has a database interface termed "warehouse", but this is not active by default because you need to run a database somewhere. At the moment, the only working implementation I'm aware of is .

So if you want to store your robot states or planning scenes, you will have to setup a MongoDB and use this plugin.

Note that if you only want to store a small number of states, you can do that in the srdf file of your moveit_config. The setup assistant also provides a panel to add these states there.
