Chapter 3

Deploying the page in Lightning

That's it, the Skuid page is built! But while our live build experience ends here, we're still going to discuss one more vital part of working with Skuid: deployment—making our pages available to end users.

Note: You likely won't be doing this in your workshop. You can follow these steps after the workshop if you'd rather focus on the presentation.

Skuid ships with its own Lightning components to allow for native integration in Lightning pages. Let's place the Skuid page we just made into a Lightning account detail page.

There are a few different ways to do this—either by creating a new record detail page and activating it or by editing the default account detail page. In this example, let's edit the default page.

The Lightning App Builder opens the record detail page. Now, we just need to add the Skuid page to it:

To complete your deployment, just activate this Lightning page.

And that is it. Your account detail page has been enhanced with several different kinds of related lists, with several IdeaExchange ideas, all in record time with no code. Click into an account record to see it in action.

Super Bonus: Syncing with Lightning components

As one final bonus, let's make our Skuid page "talk" to the other Lightning components in the account detail. With this setting enabled, the Skuid page will update appropriately when other Lightning components on the page update opportunities related to this account, or the account's details. 

And for some final panache, we'll also only render the lead source field in the opportunities table if it's set to "New Customer."
