Viewing Application Reports

Application Builder includes over 100 reports that provide a comprehensive view of your application from various perspectives. You can use application reports to achieve consistency among shared components and page components within your application. For example, you can view details about buttons used on all pages within your application. Additionally, many reports are updatable so you can standardize components, such as item and region labels, without navigating to a specific page.
