Environments

Datasource Environments

This page explains multiple datasource environments, which allows developers to isolate their testing and production datasources.

Overview

Multiple environments allow you to display and test against nonsensitive (non-production) data. You can set up connections to your data sources (e.g., database or API) and add environment-specific credentials within the same data sources.

This allows you to create queries and switch between environments, with the queries automatically using the selected environment.

1. Accessing the Environments Page:

  • Log in to your account and navigate to the main dashboard.

  • Locate and click on the "Environments" section to access the list of existing environments.

2. Adding a New Environment:

  • On the "Environments" page, look for an option to "Add New" or a similar label.

  • Click on this option to open a form where you can input details for the new environment.

  • Fill in the required information, such as environment name, description, and any other relevant details.

  • Once complete, save the new environment.

After creating a new Environment, you can select that environment as below.

Environment combobox will appear after Visual Designer page is selected.

3. Deleting an Existing Environment:

  • In the "Environments" list, identify the environment you want to delete.

  • Next to the environment entry, look for a "Delete" or "Remove" option.

  • Confirm the deletion when prompted. Be cautious, as this action is irreversible.

4. Updating an Existing Environment:

  • Locate the environment you wish to update in the "Environments" list.

  • Click on the environment entry to open its detailed view or edit form.

  • Modify the necessary details, such as environment name or description.

  • Save the changes to update the existing environment.
