Create a Workspace

AppWorks allows you to model and configure your whole application using a browser.

AppWorks supports tenants – so called organizations. For the tutorial, please use only the predefined system organization. The system organization is the base organization. Applications and services published within the system organization can be used by any other organization – but not the other way around.

AppWorks supports multiple workspaces. Workspaces contains one or multiple projects (= applications).

To create a new application you have to create a new workspace and within the workspace at least one project.
