Split in front end and back end

Is it possible to split the database in a front end (screens and program logic) and a back end (data)?

When I create an application for my customer, I prefer not to import all the data every time an update of the screens/program logic needs to be installed.

    @PaulS ... I guess that all depends on how you deploy it to your customers.   If using the Ninox Cloud / Team.. then "theoretically" .. Yes.. you could use the REST/API from the "front end" to interact with the data at the "back end".. 

     

    The usual strategy is to keep track of what table objects you change.. pay attention to what fields you REMOVE / DELETE during your changes ...  Then you can "import" the changed application into the production application by select "Ninox" during the import

    import

     

    And then select the table objects that you want to import.. and UNSELECT the data that you do NOT want to import.. 

    importChanges

    Objects that are DELETED / REMOVED must be manually addressed.. at least that has been my experience.

    Oh.. Change Request 1571 asks Ninox to create a more robust configuration utility.. something that would address promoting these types of changes through the lifecycle.

    I cannot see the "Import from another database", I have just the option to import from CSV file. I am using trial Ninox Cloud version. is it because I'm using the trial version or else ?

    The question above was erroneously posted as "al pacino" test user. I resubmit with my user name (owner)

    Can you drive me where I can get a sample, or API usage for this scope ?

    Sure..  Look here

    https://ninoxdb.de/en/manual/api/rest

     

    There are also a few samples in the English Webinar forum... One I hacked out is 36_Document_Database_Structure.. it is a sample of using the API to capture a databases structure..
