Guide development

Show allHide all

This feature is a beta preview. Undocumented changes may occur.

Developers may create their own guides in addition to the ones that are distributed with Softadmin®. This section refers to creating new guides, not using existing guides for development.

A guide consists of 2 steps. The guide first specifies all parameters it needs as input from guide user in the "Get parameters"-call. Then it is uses this input to generate objects in the "Create objects"-call.

The procedures and functions in SoftadminGuide can be used to generate parameters and create objects. The procedures from this schema must be used to create or alter objects, for example SoftadminGuide.SqlModule_Create.


SQL Call: Get parameters (mandatory)

The component asks what parameters should be generated for user input.
