Directual interface overview

There are two main environments:

  • Application management
  • Configuring an app

App management

Here on the first tab we see our applications; a list of labels used for filtering is on the left; and on the right, a quick search function. If we click the “New app” button, we’ll see the app’s settings, including its name, description, labels and the developer list.

The same window appears if we click on the settings button in the app’s card.

Here we can choose a billing plan for the app. A suitable plan supports the resource consumption levels. High load apps require plans with broader limits. If you hit the plan limits without the on-demand resource consumption option on, the app will be paused and marked accordingly.

Configuring an application

The main navigation bar at the top contains links to the main sections. Let’s have a high-level overview. We’ll consider the details a little later.

We have:

  • The Dashboard, where you can find information referring to your app’s current performance;
  • Web pages. This is where you manage your app’s essential visual elements;
  • Database. Where we work with all the app data, including files;
  • Scenarios. The app’s workflows;
  • The API-builder. This is where you design and configure API-methods;
  • Version control. An essential part of the app’s life cycle management;
  • Integration with third party systems.

At the top, right hand corner you can always find links to Academy, a Community forum and Account settings.
