Entity based on an existing physical table

Dear All,

In my billing application, I have a table that saves billing history which was only maintained on the backend layer (physical database table).
The user has then required to have a screen showing this data.

What is the best and fastest way to accommodate such requirements? Do I have to re-create the entity manually and link it to the physical table? Is there any wizard or mechanism to automatically retrieve the attributes based on the physical fields?

Thank You.


You can use the “Generate model” feature in Studio to create an entity for your table automatically, or just create a new entity in Studio, specify your table name and create appropriate attributes for the existing fields.

“Generate model” link is located on the “Data model” tab, see it’s context help for details.
