Code service tutorial


Click + Add Code to open the Create New Service or Library modal.

This lets you use the code libraries to build code. Give the code service a one-word name for the system to refer to and click Create.

Code editor

1. Add code to the window to run.

2. Pick code libraries to use in your code (log is added by default). Choose the clearblade library to interact with the ClearBlade Platform.

3. Edit test parameters.

4. Save and test the code, and the results appear.

5. Turn the log toggle on to keep track of the code results.



ClearBlade provides a simple but flexible logging facility to debug your code service.

1. Ensure the log toggle is on.

2. When you create/edit your code service, you can embed log() calls strategically to monitor execution progress.

3. You can run/test the code service. This window should pop up after it executes.

4. There will be a log list starting with the most recent one to return to.

5. You can turn off logging by switching the toggle after debugging, and your service works perfectly. You do not have to remove the logs from the code (they become NOOP statements).

Create library

Click + Add Code to open the Create New Service or Library modal.

New Code Service

Switch to the Library button. Give the library a one-word name or the system to refer to and a description, and click Create.

Library code page

Just like code services, you can write your code. The difference is that you can turn it into a library for code services. You can also add other libraries to your library. Do not add the current library to itself.

New Library

Library appearance

Your new code library will appear in bold in your code service library list.

New Library

Each library is required from a service. Some libraries are not listed by default and must be added. Libraries added later will override earlier ones if conflicts arise.
