public interface DataSourcesTab
Developer Console, lets you view, search and edit data from any DataSource in the currently loaded application, or, if you have the Pro edition or better, any DataSource defined on the server, even if the current application hasn't loaded it.
If you are using our server product and you have
deployed the tools, then the DataSources tab bypasses
normal security restrictions and allows any operation on any DataSource. Otherwise, if the
tools are not deployed or not accessible to the current user, then the DataSources tab only
lets you do whatever the currently authorized user can do.
If you use the
DataSource auditing feature, the
DataSources tab also allows you to access the audit trail for any DataSource where auditing is
The DataSources tab will present you with a list of the available
DataSources. If you click on one, a new section will be opened showing the data from that
DataSource in a ListGrid, offering filtering via the standard
FilterEditor, and editing via
grid editing. At the bottom of the section,
buttons are shown to add a new record, and export the data in various formats to a file (or the
screen if not using the server product).
To upload data to
Reify, a special "Reify Export" button is shown in
the header of the DataSources list section. When clicked, the behavior will temporarily change
so that you can click DataSources to build up a selection without new sections opening. To
finalize your selection, click the same button again, which will appear as "Done Selecting".
When selection is complete, a configuration dialog will open to let you customize how many
rows will be fetched for each DataSource (or how many levels for Tree DataSources). Both global
and per-DataSource limits are allowed, with a section in the dialog shown for each selected
DataSource. If desired, additional per-DataSource criteria can be applied via a
FilterBuilder in its dedicated configuration section.
Through a radio button at the top of the dialog, you can also select whether to save the export
to a file, or show the output in a dialog. Click the "Export" button to complete configuration
and run the export.
