Introduction

 

VTAP Tables allows you to create, update, delete tables just like any sql table. You can add data, update, delete data to these tables and use them just like spreadsheets. Generally you would use these tables when you have light data, which does not need permission checks or each row does not need an owner. You can use these Tables with Insights Designers and visualize the data in different types of charts, and pivot tables. You can embed apps built on VTAP into the CRM iframe.

 

You can use these tables to store data for many use cases like:

  • Store data coming from other applications.
  • Push crm data, like log data or user specific data.​​​​​​
 

Technical Limits

  • Every account can have a maximum of 100 tables.
  • Every table can have a maximum of 100,000 rows
  • Every table can have a maximum of 50 columns.


VTAP Tables can be accessed from our REST API’s as well as VTAP Javascript API’s which are explained below.
 

 REST API’s

You can use REST API calls to perform CRUD actions on the VTAP Tables.
 

Authentication

VTAP Tables uses basic authentication to access the resources. You need to pass Vtiger Username as username and Accesskey(available in User My preference) as Password.
