Specifying a searchable data page

Updated on April 6, 2022

To search for data objects that are stored on a remote system, specify a searchable data page. A request JSON queries the searchable data page source and provides the results. For example, a customer service representative searches for a customer record by using the customer phone number. The results are populated from a remote system.

Before you begin: To specify a searchable data page, you must set the following parameters on the Definition tab of the data page rule form:
  • Structure – Set to List
  • Mode – Set to Read-only
  • Scope – Set to Thread or Requestor
  • Data source – Set to one of the following data sources:
    • REST connector
    • Data transform
    • Activity
    • Aggregate sources
      Note: All aggregate sources must be a REST connector, data transform, or activity.
  1. In the navigation pane of Dev Studio, click Records.
  2. Expand the Data Model category, and then click Data Page.
  3. Click on the row of the data page that you want to open.
  4. On the Definition tab, in the Query Options section, select the Allow query using a JSON object (recommended for queries using many fields) check box.
  5. Click Save.
