Primary Tables

The primary table is the foundation of a SBM application. Each application has one primary table in the SBM database. The primary table is created automatically when you add an application to a process app.

A primary table stores a record for each item that follows the corresponding workflow. Primary tables contain a combination of required system fields, optional system fields, and custom fields. These fields are used to collect data as the primary item progresses through the workflow. Workflows depend on the primary table to hold the fields and actual records created by progress through the workflow.

When users with the proper privileges submit, transition, update, and perform other operations on primary items, they update the corresponding records in the primary table.
