Kodika Server Data Types

Kodika Server Data Types are special Data Types that can be stored in our servers.

Each Kodika Server Data Type can have Data Type properties with any of the Supported Data Types or relationships with the same or other Server Data Types.

Tip: A Server Data Type is like an Entity, for example, a User or a Pet, and Server Data Type properties are their properties, for example Name or Age.
