Types of Page

The grids of data shared using ipushpull are called 'pages'. There are two types of pages

  • Regular

Regular pages have no underlying data schema. They are best suited for higher-frequency data distribution use cases or pages with complex layouts. The entire contents of a regular page can be updated in a single push request.

  • Structured

Structured pages have an underlying schema which defines field names, data types and primary key information. They are best suited for workflow use cases where each row in the page should be treated as a record. It is still possible to update and retrieve the entire contents of a structured page using a single push request, but rows within structured pages can also be updated and queried using an SQL-like query language.

The different page types are suitable for different uses cases and can be interacted with in different ways.
