Defining the user interface through view definitions

In BMC Helix Innovation Studio, a view definition is a graphical representation of your application. You use the view definitions to design the user interface for applications. 

You can create a view definition by arranging the data items in a specific order or by showing only specific data items. For example, a view definition called Tracking Item which will be used to create and update Tracking Item records.


Application business analysts can customize the objects developed in their own applications and that are marked customizable by the administrator, but cannot customize the objects developed in com.bmc.arsys in Best Practice Customization mode. For example, objects in core BMC applications like Foundation, Approval, and Assignment cannot be customized in Best Practice Customization mode. For more information, see Customization layer
