Adding data through a UI View

With Constellation, it is possible to create portions of your Data Model while creating a View.

Configuring Fields in the Constellation UI

You can use the Configure a View screen to add new fields to the Case Type Data Model as needed throughout application development.

For example, the Data Model in your application includes a reusable data object named Customer that aggregates customer information such as First Name, Last Name, and Email. A new business requirement dictates that that the application also gathers the customer's account number. You may choose to add the Account number field when configuring the Collect customer information View in Constellation's Edit View screen. 

The following figure displays adding a new field from the Edit View screen: 

Adding a field from a view

Despite the ability to add fields to the Data Model directly from a View, as a Pega Business Architect, it is best practice to create the Data Model by using the Data Explorer first, keeping reuse and inheritance in mind.
