Components Console

Last update: 2023-12-04

The Components console lets you browse through all components defined for your instance and view key information for each component.

It can be accessed from Tools > General > Components. In the console, card and list view are available. Because there is no tree structure for components, column view is not available.

NOTE

The Component Console shows all components in the system. The Component Browser shows components that are available to authors and hides any component groups that begin with a period ( .).

Search
