App SDK 1.x
The App SDK includes a set of data-aware, user-interface components that allow for quicker and easier creation of custom apps. User interface (UI) components include drop-downs for iteration, release, and programs, pie chart, table, attribute drop-down, object drop-down, and standard reports. A Rally Data Source component allows an intuitive interface to the data in your CA Agile Central subscription.
This document provides a basic overview of how to use v1.32 of the App SDK to build apps as well as a reference for the commands, parameters, and return values of the App SDK.
