Creating data tables to store objects in console

In the topic "Saving Objects with Relations and Dynamic Schema Creation" there has been demonstrated the dynamic data table creation. That approach is called "code first" - where the code dictates the database schema. 

However, a more traditional approach where a developer creates the tables first and then writes code which works with them is also supported by Backendless platform. 

Fro creating data tables in Backendless in the trivially simple way, follow the instructions below:

  1. Login to Backendless console, select an app and click the Data icon.
  2. Locate and click the "plus" button in the lower left corner of the user interface:
  3. Enter the name of the table in the popup. A name cannot start with a number and cannot contain spaces or special characters. Click Save to create the table.
  4. Once a table is created, the console will ask you if you would like to define table's schema.
