Configure the data store

A data store lets you define the data that appears in a list.

The data consists of a collection of fields, name and type. For example, to display a work queue in the List control, define the following set:

  • Activity name (string)

  • Due date (date)

  • Assigned to (string)

  • EPC (int)

  • NodeID (int)

  • JobId (string)

Once defined, data store properties are available for use in an action. For example, you can select a data store similar to a table in a DB query action and then map the fields in the data store to the data returned.

  1. In the properties panel of a List control, click the Data store tab.
  2. Click .
  3. Enter a unique Name for the fields.
  4. Select the Type of data, such as String.
  5. Click Add.
  6. Click Save.
