shared resource

A shared resource is an application resource that can be shared across any app, or process. These files are never checked in or published, and they do not use version control. A list of shared resource files shows when you import or check the dependencies of an app.

The ways the shared resource files are applied in design time and runtime:

  • Access tokens are collections of credentials that are used to authenticate communication directly between AgilePoint NX and an external system. Because it is the AgilePoint NX system that uses these credentials, rather than an app, there is no difference between design time and runtime access tokens. Access tokens are never checked in or published, and they do not use version control. If you change an access token in the App Builder or Manage Center, the access token changes immediately everywhere the access token is used. Changes to app level access tokens apply to all versions of an app, including running application instances. Changes to global access tokens apply everywhere they are used in AgilePoint NX. You can not roll back an access token to a previous version.
  • If you create a new version of an application, and change shared JavaScript or CSS at the application level, when you publish the new version, the changed shared JavaScript or CSS files apply to all versions of the application, including all previously published versions, and all application instances.

    This rule does not apply to custom JavaScripts and CSS created in an eForm. If you want to use different versions of JavaScript or CSS for different versions of an application, you can specify the scripts in your eForms, instead of specifying them at the application level.
