Select the "Folder" program type. Also choose the required node type. Having selected the "Production" folder, you can find its "Children" and "Parents" at the bottom of the dialog and see the entire structure of the "Production" node. Compare it with the node structure in the explorer window of your Cinegy Desktop client:
