Understanding Objects Integrations

Published custom Objects are integrated with Liferay’s core frameworks, so you can leverage Liferay’s features to build unified experiences across the platform. This chart provides an overview of how Objects leverages these integrations.

Framework

Description

Asset

Use the Attachment field to upload files to your instance’s document library.

Audit

Use the Audit application to review Object events with their user and resource info.

Categorization

Add categorization tools to custom Object layouts so users can add tags and categories to entries.

Headless

Liferay generates a headless endpoint for each published Object, so you can make REST calls.

Info Framework
