Make DevTool

Inspect and Tweak your Scenarios in Make at a Single Glance!

Make DevTool allows you to debug your Make scenarios in a completely new way. It adds an extra pane to the Chrome Developer Tools. Using this new debugger pane, you're able to check all the manual runs of your scenario, review all the performed operations and see the details of every API call performed. It also brings a whole bunch of new opportunities for Apps development. You're able to check every call that your app has performed. Thanks to this extension, you can easily debug your scenario, see which module, operation, even which single response causes the error, and then get your scenario back on track. Try it out and let your scenarios shine!

Source Module

Select the module for which you want to retrieve metadata.

Copy mapping

Copies values from the source module to the target module.

Caution

Make sure you set the correct source and target modules. If you select a different type of module, values in the target module will be deleted.

Source Module

Select the module or enter the ID of the module from which you want to copy field values.

Target Module
