Select the AppBuilder client you are currently using for development.

IDE

When you develop the backend of your app, Data, Users, Notifications and Business Logic lets you create custom content types and perform CRUD operations on them and manage users, files and roles. The Data Navigator in AppBuilder lets you review content types, users, files and roles for your app and helps you access them for the corresponding Data, Users, Notifications and Business Logic service in Telerik Platform. From the Data Navigator, you can also open the business logic (cloud code) of your app for editing and view the business logic (cloud code) log.

In the Data Navigator, the in-browser client lists information for all Data, Users, Notifications and Business Logic services in your Telerik Platform account.

In the Data Navigator, the universal desktop client lists information for the Data, Users, Notifications and Business Logic services enabled for the current app.

In the Data Navigator, the classic Windows desktop client and extension for Visual Studio list all Data, Users, Notifications and Business Logic services that you can access with your Telerik Platform user.
