The Overview screen is provided within every app and is found at the top left menu via the eye icon (). The screen provides a history of actions taken for the app and high-level details. Actions available are to update the app name, app description, and sorting the columns.
Exit - The back arrow icon () exits the app and returns to the app card selection screen within the application group of the app, i.e. Synthesizer, Composer, Orchestrator.
Name - Name of the app shown on the app card, dataflows, job tracker, etc. The name is required, given at the time of app creation, but can be updated within the overview screen.
Key - The key field is a unique key used to identify the app. The default value of the key is the given name of the app with spaces removed, but the value of the key can be altered at the time of app creation. The field is locked after the app has been created.
App Prefix - App prefix is the abbreviated value used to identify the app's datasets and tables within the workflow canvas. The default value of the prefix is the given name of the app with spaces removed, but the value can be altered at the time of app creation or within the overview screen after the app has been created.
If the app prefix value is altered after the app has been created then any tables existing within the app will be using the previous, original app prefix value. New tables added to the app's workflow canvas will have the new app prefix value.
Template - The template value is selected at the time of app creation and is locked thereafter. The available options vary based on the module in which the app is being created, i.e. Synthesizer, Composer, Orchestrator.
Description - The description field is a free form text field available to capture the description of the app. This is an optional field that can be provided at the time of creating the app or created and edited within the overview screen after the app has been created.
Event Store / Data Store - The event store field is the selected Event Store or ID Store selected via the required field Data Store at the time of app creation. This is the location of the app and its data. The value is locked after the app has been created.
Partition Scheme - Partition scheme is selected at the time of creating the app and is locked thereafter. This field determines the granularity of the partitions of the tables within the app. Available options are daily and hourly.
Override Icon - The override icon toggle allows the default icon shown on the app card to be altered. The default icon is dependent on the template of the app. When the toggle is turned on there are two options to associate a new icon with the app:
- Existing Icon toggle on - This allows the user to search and associate an icon that has already been uploaded to the environment with the current app.
- Existing Icon toggle off - This allows the user to upload a new icon for the app. When uploading a new icon it must be given a name so that it can be referenced and searched for and thus is available to be reused on a different app.
App Audit Log - The grid on the right of the screen shows high-level activities and updates that have occurred to the app.
