Retool 2.79

Create and edit resources from your app

You can now view, edit, and create new resources without leaving your Retool app!

To create a new resource, select the “create a new resource” option from the top of the resource dropdown in any query. You can configure a connection and immediately query any of our 40+ supported database and API types, including Postgres, MongoDB, and any REST API or GraphQL.

To view or edit a resource configuration, click the “edit resource” button from the selected resource in your query. For example, you can view the name of the default bucket of an S3 resource, add staging credentials to a Postgres database, or add a new header to your GraphQL resource—all without leaving your app! Any changes to the resource persist across all Retool apps in your current environment.

We’re rolling out this new functionality this week. Share any feedback or suggestions for new resource types in our community forum!
