Web Designer Editor

The Web Designer is a development environment for One Identity Manager web applications. The web application resulting from a web project is based on ASP.NET. Web Designer uses a simplified development model which helps you to quickly develop a robust web application without any prior knowledge in Microsoft .NET Framework.

The development module use by the Web Designer forms the basis of the web project. A web project represents the later web application and is made up of reusable modules and components amongst other things.

The installation already contains numerous default modules and components as well as a default web project that uses them. You can configure and extend the default web project to create your own web application. You can also add a new web project where you can reuse default modules and components.

The Web Designer development environment contains an editor with which you can program your web application.

In addition, Web Designer has a compiler to compile your web project. Compiling is a prerequisite so that the web project can run as a web application. You can debug a web project running as a web application with the help of the integrated debugger in Web Designer.
