:2001/Databases/Schemas/Schema/Indexes - no.
However I found a bunch of constraints named Q_* that can be found at
2001:/ Databases/Schemas/Schema/Tables/Table-right-click/Show indexes.
It seems to me that the SQL manager creates an index for every constraint

uses the Q_* index.
Anyone knows the reason those indexes are not showed up as indexes unless I
right click on the specific table name and click Show Indexes?
Why are they hidden? I can't get usage information etc.
If I'm reasonably right about these indexes being used it seems appropriate
to add a lookup to qsys2.syskeycst in my DB relations analyze program.
If I'm going to loose more hair on this I probably have to start with arms
