Administrate Custom Objects

Custom Objects Page

The Custom Objects Overview page provides an overview of all the custom objects and configurations in the application

View Details

View Details command will open the detail page of the selected configuration


Most custom objects have an  Approved  flag to control if an object is  ready for publishing  and to temporarily disable parts of a configuration.



When publishing a Custom Object, Database Objects are generated from the configuration metadata and deployed to the database.

The following happens when you publish:

  • Database Objects are generated and deployed to the database.
  • Privileged system users are granted access to the database objects.
  • Dictionary Cache is refreshed.
  • A Presentation Object is created for the new objects.
  • The Presentation Object is granted to all necessary roles, i.e., all roles that are granted any of the views belonging to the Entity that is extended.


When unpublishing, all the deployed database objects except for the table will be removed. The table is kept so that the configuration can be updated and republished without losing any data. For information on how to completely remove a published logical unit see Cleanup Data.

Note: Unpublish removes the view and package from the server, this means that if other Custom Objects is referencing any of the attributes, they will not work anymore and possibly throw errors.
