Display a customized response
This example shows you how to display a different response following a smart action based on the number of records selected:
  • if the action is done on one company, the response is "Company is now live!"
  • if the action is done on several company, the response is "Companies are now live!"

Requirements

  • An admin backend running on forest-express-sequelize

How it works

Directory: /models

This directory contains the companies.js file where the model is declared.
/models/companies.js
1
module.exports = (sequelize, DataTypes) => {
2
const { Sequelize } = sequelize;
3
const Companies = sequelize.define('companies', {
4
name: {
5
type: DataTypes.STRING,
6
},
7
status: {
8
type: DataTypes.STRING,
9
}
10
}, {
11
tableName: 'companies',
12
timestamps: false,
13
schema: process.env.DATABASE_SCHEMA,
14
});
15
16
17
return Companies;
18
};
Copied!

Directory: /forest

This directory contains the companies.js file where the Smart Action Mark as Liveis declared.
1
const { collection } = require('forest-express-sequelize');
2
3
collection('companies', {
4
actions: [{
5
name: 'Mark as Live',
6
type: 'bulk',
7
}],
8
});
Copied!

Directory: /routes

This directory contains the companies.js file where the implementation of the route is handled. The POST /forest/actions/mark-as-live API call is triggered when you click on the Smart Action in the Forest UI.
