Field List
Field NameTypeDescription
Subsystem ID String Required. Must be unique. As this is the primary key it cannot be changed.
Name String Required. Free format text.
Description String Optional. Free format text.
Directory String Required. This is the directory under the application root (see below) in which all the scripts for this subsystem are contained. This entry must be a single directory name, not a path to a directory, so '/' characters are not allowed.

The application root may be $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] or a path to a subdirectory. The name will be extracted at runtime, so need not be hard-coded anywhere.

The directory structure can be built using the Build Directory task.

Task Prefx String Optional. This will be used when entries on the TASK table are generated by the Generate PHP Scripts function. It is only relevant when your application database tables do not already have a unique prefix.
