From the Global Monitoring - Global Entities page, you can achieve the functionalities as follows:

  • View the list of all the global entities with a type filter and sorted by various fields

  • View the details of each global entity

  • Edit the details of each global entity

  • Create new global entities

  • Clone the existing global entities

  • Delete the global individual entity

  • Export/import global entities

As for the details of how to create and retrieve global entities through APIs, refer to the global entity APIs docs here.

The following screen will be seen when browsing to Monitoring | Global Monitoring | Global Entities page, which will list all the global entities of your current app.

Click the Actions button of each entity, and you will find three options from this drop-down menu, selecting View/Edit option will open a dialog for editing the selected entity, selecting Clone option will make a copy of your selected entity, it will open an entity adding dialog with all field filled, selecting Delete option will erase your selected entity.

Click the drop-down menu beside the [Filter by Type] text, you can filter the displayed entities list from the type you chose.

From the global entities list page, you can create a new entity by clicking the [+] button at the right-up corner of the list screen.

  • You will see the Add Global Entity window pop up.

  • Fill out the necessary fields for your global entity and click Save.

Entity Indexed ID - This is the field in which you can define an index for fast searching.

Entity Type - Categorize your global entity with a new or existing type.

Owner ID - Set the owner of this entity. (You can call MakeSystemEntity() API to clear the owner of this entity, which will make all users have the same level of persimmon to this entity. )

ACL - Set the access control level for this entity. (If the entity is a non-owned entity, ACL must be set to public)

Data - This is the field you define your global entity data. (By clicking the {Retrieve Example} button if you select an existing type, you are able to get reference data from other entities of the selected type)

You can also export/import the whole entities from the entities list page by selecting the options from the Bulk Actions.

Pro-tips: Note that for these three types of JSON files, their name ends up with filename_line.json, filename_obj.json and filename_row.json. The name does matter when uploading them via Bulk Action -> Import operations, so make sure the name matches its type.

This is what the import entities window looks like:
