Select the Record to edit

The first step of edit a record is to select which Record you want your user to edit. This Record could be either the same every time the Datasource is executed or change dynamically using a binded value.

Specific/Static Record

If you select a specific Record in this step, every time the datasource is executed, it will always edit the same Record, regardless of the current user or other parameters.

Binded Record value

You can bind the Record value for it to change dynamically during the execution. For example, you can bind it to a Current User’s property, so each user changes its own Records.

Request Parameters


Change the record that will be edited.

Updated Properties

Bind the properties that you want to change their values.
Note: Datasource will edit the values only of the binded properties. The other properties will remain unchanged.


Note: If any of the validations failed, the On Success response is not called, and only the respective failure response is called.
