Back4App is a BaaS (Backend-as-a-service) platform is powered by Parse Open Source which you can use to build your app faster, host it with no hassles and keep full control over your Backend.
The prefered Parse Server’s datatabase to host your app is MongoDB, so once your Back4App is created, the Database Browser allows you to manage your app’s data as creating, reading, updating or removing your objects and classes.
The Dashboard looks similar to a spreadsheet and lets you create classes and its properties in a row/column structure, that easy to understand and maintain over time. Also, importing/exporting/filtering data makes data management a breeze.
At this point, we are going to show you the main features available at this section:
Add a row
To add a new object in the class, you need to click in the
Add a row blue button or in the icon, after you’ve created a new row, just double-click into the cell to set the new values.
Add a column
To add a new column in the class, you need to click over the item and a modal will be opened:
By clicking on this icon, you can hide or sort the columns.
Clicking on this icon, you will hold reload the page to update the data.
The easiest way to filter your data from the Dashboard is using this icon which will allow a quick analysis through the conditions you can select.
Briefly, the Edit button allows manipulations of data like add/remove row, column or class, configure the class-level Permissions that apply security measures at that level, restricting how and when client applications can access and create data in Parse, and manipulate and create indexes to your database that will improve the database performance. Also, inside this option, you will be able to import or export your data.
