Grid Editor

The Grid Editor is a tool within a Blueprint in CSM Administrator that allows you to manage (create, edit, and delete) Business Object Grids.

The Grid Editor's preview is dynamic; when you make changes, the changes are immediately reflected in the preview. Publish the Blueprint to commit the changes.
