Use data views to bridge the connection between your application and the integration and to give your application the data the way the application expects to receive it.
Data views define the data associated with a data object and contain the data object's connection configuration to a system of record, separating your application from the integration with the system of record. Because of this separation, your application can easily adapt to integration changes and access data from a range of sources on demand. With data views, you can connect a data page of one object type to a data source of another, incompatible type, enabling data virtualization.
In App Studio you can view a list of data views associated with a data object, replace or update the source used by a data view, and configure its environment settings. Use App Studio to create data views, called data pages in Dev Studio.
Data views can be simulated, production ready, or not simulated and not production ready if the data view references a source that does not have settings that are configured for production. Simulated data views do not have a data source associated with them. You must configure the data source before the data view is ready for production.
