Data Container

You can remotely control the data records from your DataContainer tables with the API. DataContainer tables are separate database tables within contentDock®. Data containers are virtual groups in which DataContainer tables are logically related to each other. DataContainer tables are similarly configured to database tables. DataContainers are used for dynamic content elements such as Tables or Charts.
