The sections below describe the actions you can perform on this page.

2 Web Modeler

In the Web Modeler section, you can see whether the Web Modeler is enabled for the app. You can also do the following:

  • Enable the Web Modeler if it has not been enabled yet by clicking Enable Web Modeler

  • Enable collaborative development with the Web Modeler for apps using Mendix version 7.23.3 and above by clicking Enable Now (for more information on the collaborative development process, see Collaborative Development)

3 Editing Cloud Settings

Click Cloud Settings to select the cloud platform on which to deploy your app. The selection of cloud platforms available will depend on the features of your Mendix account.

If you select a non-Mendix cloud platform like SAP, you will be redirected to a page to complete the setup. If you select Mendix Cloud, no additional setup is needed.

Specific steps for configuring different cloud platforms are provided here:

4 Editing App Info

Click Edit App Info to edit the following details:

  • The name and logo of the app
  • The Description of the app
  • The App Contact

4 Managing Webhooks

Click Manage Webhooks to manage your app’s webhooks. A webhook enables the Developer Portal to talk to another website and post updated Developer Portal content (for example, sprint updates and new stories) to that website. For example, if Mansystems wants to follow the changes in their app project, they will create a service with a certain URL (see the required URL below) that keeps track of the data. Changes in the app project in the Developer Portal are then sent to that URL.

On the Webhooks settings page, you can add a new webook and edit or delete existing webhooks:

After clicking New to create a new webhook, fill in the following details:

  • Name – the name of the webook
  • URL – the URL to which the webhook will connect
  • Secret – the secret used by the Developer Portal to sign the data payload in order to identify the source of the data to the receiving URL (this appears when creating and editing a webhook, but it will not be displayed on the Webhooks settings page)
  • Version – the version of the webhooks feature to be used
  • Events – what types of data will be sent via the webook (you must select at least one; this appears when creating and editing a webhook, but it will not be displayed on the Webhooks settings page)

To edit the above details for an existing webhook, click Edit.

To delete an existing webhook, click Delete.

5 Leaving the App

To leave the app, click Leave App. For details on leaving, deleting, and deactivating an app, see How to Leave & Delete an App.
