Given a xarray dataset opened from zarr, how to determine store and group?

Like the title says, I am interested in discovering the store and group from an xarray dataset. This would only be relevant for zarr-backed xarray datasets.

Any idea if this is possible? I tried digging around, but no luck yet.

I’m running into a related problem. Given an xr.Dataset, I’m trying to determine if it is zarr backed. I can’t seem to find a nice way to do this starting from the dataset itself.

Have you checked the dataset .encoding attribute? That’s where Xarray should be storing this information. If it’s not there, this would be a good issue to open on the Xarray issue tracker.

Thanks @rabernat.
