Admin Section

This article will be covering what is the admin section and how you can access it.

What is Admin?

The admin section is an administrator backend that is included in all Codebots applications. The admin section gives your system administrators a high level view of the application. To access the admin section, you will need to create an admin entity containing the User behaviour in the Entity Diagram. The admin section currently allows administrators to create, read, update and delete all entities attached to the application. In the future, the admin section will allow configuring of other behaviours such as Forms and Workflows.

Creating Admin

Create a new entity using the Entity Diagram named Admin, and attach the User behaviour.

In Security Diagram, select all the permissions checkboxes for the Admin user. It is important that the Admin has read, create, update and delete permissions for all entities.

Going to Admin

Log into your dev application with the following credentials.
Username: admin@example.com
Password: password

This admin account is only available in your dev environment, and will not be created in production due to privacy and security reasons.

When logged in as an admin, you will see a a black bar with a link in the right corner that says Admin.

Clicking this will take you to the admin section of your application. This is where you can view, add and modify entities, users and other behaviours that are added to your application.
