Selecting components for an app

After creating a site map, the entities you included in the site map are automatically added to the app. You can now add additional components and assets, including entities, forms, views, charts, dashboards, and business process flows.

You can use the Components and Properties tabs on the right-hand side of the app designer, as shown in Figure 9.2, to select components for the app. For each entity, you can choose which entity assets, such as forms, views, or charts, will be available in the app.

You can create new components from within the app designer.

Once you have completed selecting the components and entity assets, click on Save, then Validate, followed by Publish. You can use the play button to open and test your model-driven app. 

Users will not be able to run your app until you share the app with them.
