Change the source models in an app

In one action, you can change the source models for multiple pages in an app.

Use this option to change an app's data source from development to production.

When you change the source model for a page, any forms configured for the page are duplicated and connected to the source model you select. If the data structure of the newer source model is not identical to the previous model, then you need to recreate the forms and cards on your page.

If you do not have access to multiple workspaces, the Manage models dialog will not display the Change Workspace column.
