Rabix Composer configuration

Before you can use Rabix Composer, you must either add a local workspace or connect a platform account, or both. Your local workspace is where you create and store your local apps and data files. Your Platform account connection allows you to access and edit apps from your Platform projects, and also to access public apps from the Platform.

You can connect multiple platform user accounts from multiple platforms to Rabix Composer. Only one user is active at any one time, but you can seamlessly switch between Platform user accounts.

The left-hand navigation pane, under My Projects, will always display the Local Files from your local workspace, along with those project files you imported from the active Platform account (e.g. Seven Bridges).

Add a local workspace

  1. In the Rabix Composer left-hand navigation pane, click Open a project. In the Open a project dialog, select the Local option, then click Select a folder.
  2. Navigate to the folder you want to add as your workspace. Click Add to workspace and Done. The folder you have selected is added as a local workspace. If you do add a higher level folder by mistake, you can right-click it and select Remove from Workspace.

Now you can create apps in your local workspace and edit them using the Rabix Composer tool and workflow editors. You can also select an app from this area and drag and drop it into a workflow.

Connect a Platform account

To connect a Platform account to Rabix Composer, you need:

You can have several Platform accounts connected to Rabix Composer. Deactivate, Edit, and Remove the connected accounts from the Settings tab. The active account is labelled as such in the Settings tab and is displayed in the top right corner of Rabix Composer.

Follow the steps below to connect the first Platform account to a particular instance of Rabix Composer. If you’ve already connected at least one account, you can add projects from your active account, or you can go to the Settings tab to connect other Platform accounts.

  1. Click +Open a project in the left-hand navigation pane.
  2. In the popup, select the Platform option.
  3. Click Add a Connection.
  4. In the popup, select the platform name from the dropdown menu and paste in the corresponding Developer Token. If you don’t have your token handy, click Get Token.
  5. Click Apply to finish connecting the Platform account. This brings you back to the Open a Project popup.
  6. Click inside the text box to see a list of projects associated with the active account.
  7. Select each project you want to add to your workspace. You need to add at least one project to follow the tutorials here.
  8. Click Done to add the selected projects to Rabix Composer.

Add projects from your active platform account

Adding a platform account does not automatically add all the projects associated with the account. To add one or more projects from the active platform account, follow the instructions below:

  1. Click +Open a Project in the left-hand navigation pane.
  2. In the popup, select the Platform option.
  3. Click inside the text box to see a list of projects associated with the account.
  4. Select each project you want to add to your workspace. You will need to add at least one project in order to follow the tutorials here.
  5. Click Done to add the selected projects to Rabix Composer.
