What You'll Learn

In this article, you'll learn about UDesigner and the various improvements that come with it.

UDesigner Levels

It's important to note that UDesigner follows the same architecture as the previous platform, including the same level structure.

It consists of four levels:

  • Environment Level: The Environment Level is the highest level in the architecture and the entry point when you log in to your environment.
  • Workspace Level: At the Workspace Level, you can create and manage any applications that are part of that workspace.
  • Application Level: The Application Level is where you create and manage the app elements of your application.
  • Application Element Level: App elements are modules, workflows, and reference data. This level is where you'll create and manage modules, workflows, or Data Collections.

Here's a high-level overview of the UDesigner architecture:
