Application Manager

An Intrexx portal application is created based on a template. When you switch to the Applications module in the Portal Manager, the list of templates will load. If the Applications module is already open, you can also reach the templates via the main menu item File / New application.

Applications

New application

If you click on "Application" in the left part of the dialog, the Empty Application and Basic Application templates will appear on the right. These two templates are included and also available offline. Click on "Create" to create a new application based on the selected template. Clicking on the "More templates" link loads more templates. You will reach the same template list that you reach by clicking on "Templates" in the left pane.

Templates

The templates available here are available online and are automatically downloaded from the United Planet repository when you click on "Import". Clicking on "Import" opens a dialog where the application template can be imported into the portal and then opened in the Applications module to edit it.

If the "Templates" category is selected on the left, you will see the "Repository" button at the top right of the search field. Click here for more information about this topic.

When searching for published or recently edited applications, simply enter the title or GUID of the application you are looking for in the search field.

If only one application is displayed as the search result, it can also be opened directly by pressing the Enter key in the search field, provided that it is not locked.
