Data Entities

Data Entities is an AgilePoint NX component that lets you create and manage a custom data model that is native to the AgilePoint NX platform. You can use Data Entities to securely store and retrieve data for AgilePoint NX applications as an alternative to an external data source, such as a database, SharePoint, or a CRM service.

Entities in AgilePoint NX are similar to tables in a database. AgilePoint NX comes with a number of out-of-the-box entities, sometimes called standard entities. You can also create custom entities.

Entities include fields, which are like columns in a database. A unit of data within an entity is called a record.

Similar to a database, you can create relationships between entities with dependent fields, which let you get data from one entity based on a record in another entity.
