Supported Entities

The Live Apps Connector supports the following entities and operations.

Note:

Live Apps entity names are dynamic. The case types, creators, and actions that are available, depend on the names given in your Live Apps applications.

The Live Apps Connector displays all creators and actions that are available in your Live Apps subscription, even if you do not have permission to execute them. This means it is possible to attempt to execute a Live Apps action for which you do not have permission. In this case, the action fails with an appropriate run time error.

You cannot perform actions or create cases that require participant users or participant groups as input data.

Depending on the entities supported, a TIBCO Scribe® Online user could alter user accounts in the target system.
