Introducing Kii Cloud Data Browser
One of our most-requested features is now available in the Kii Developer Portal!
The Kii Data Browser allows you to view objects that are being created and stored within your app. Built with an awesome UI, the browser allows you to easily drill into buckets, sort, and even run queries to filter the data results.
Browsing App Data
Browsing App-Scope Data
To browse a bucket that exists within your application scope, simply enter the bucket name in the search bar and click the search button!
Browsing Group and User-Scope Data
If you wish to see what’s in a bucket that belongs to a specific group or user, simply create a new tab and specify the scope along with the UUID of the user or group you’d like to search for. Once you hit ‘Save’, the tab will load the objects within the specified bucket
Managing Displayed Attributes
To toggle which attributes (columns) are shown, simply click the ‘+‘ button on the right-hand side of the browser. This will display a panel, where all the top-level keys within the bucket will be displayed. Simply click the attributes to toggle them within the browser!
Sorting & Filtering
The data browser allows you to sort by column simply by clicking the column header. You’ll notice a triangle appears, indicating the direction of the sort. Click the column header again to reverse the sort.
After you pull up a bucket, you can create a new tab based on its data. In the tab configuration, you can create simple or complex queries to filter the data by. Let’s say you wish to only see objects in a bucket where ‘gender’ is ‘male’ and ‘age’ is between 40-60. You can do that easily by specifying those parameters in the tab configuration.
Building queries is simple and intuitive – further helped by the key dropdown which dynamically populates all available keys within your bucket!
If you’d like to try it out yourself, head over to the Kii Developer Portal and find it in the ‘Data’ section of your app. For more detailed information on what the browser can do, check out the guide in our documentation.
Have fun and let us know what you think!
