Schemas UI overview

The Schemas workspace in the Adobe Experience Platform user interface allows you to manage Experience Data Model (XDM) resources, including schemas, classes, mixins, and data types. You can view and explore core resources provided by Adobe, and create custom resources and schemas for your organization.

To access to the workspace in the Platform UI, select Schemas in the left rail.

Getting started

If you are using the workspace for the first time, start with the guide on exploring existing resources in the UI to familiarize yourself with the different tabs and the schema canvas.

It is also recommended that you follow the schema creation tutorial to create an example schema and get a full tour of the Schema Editor’s capabilities in the process.
