Overview of collection schema
Your collection fields internally are saved as JSON and UI schemas. We provide an easy to use schema builder where you can manage your fields without knowing anything about these schemas. We also provide an option to see and manually edit collection schemas which can be useful if you want to recreate a collection by copying a schema from one collection and pasting it to another.
Schema builder allows you to add fields to your collection. The builder can be accessed by opening your collection or creating a new collection.
Schema builder view
We provide many different field types that should satisfy any needs.
Provided field types
As said before, schema builder uses JSON schema internally which you can see or edit yourself.
JSON and UI schema view
- JSON schema - a schema that describes each of a field. Used for validation and display.
- UI schema - a schema that describes how each field should be rendered.
Although we provide schemas and allow you to edit them, we still recommend using a builder as builder fields use specific values to form a schema. Besides, editing your fields in the builder will reset your changes in JSON and UI schemas.
UI schema should not be edited at all (unless you paste a schema previously generated by a builder) because each of a field requires specific values to be rendered correctly.
