LookUp Repositories



3 minute read

Repositories in APPSeCONNECT provides the user to create and manage Lookups in form of reference tables for the organisation. Lookups enables the user to provide specific values to the application integration, such that when the source and destination application is integrated, the value in source application can easily be integrated with its value in destination application, corresponding to its field. Having independent repositories for lookups will help the users to create Lookup collections and manage them in separate refernce tables as per their need. Each Repository Collection created will multiple have reference tables that will enable the users to store and manage the collection of Lookup References.
