A Tulip Table is a simulated database table that the user can create and edit in order to store complex data. The fields are user created and completely customizable except for a required ID field (see Table Field for more details).

From a technical standpoint, a Tulip Table is essentially a wrapper around a Postgres table. However, we also store some metadata about Tables described below.

It contains the following Models:

Tulip Table Metadata

Name Description
Name The display name for the table
Description Short description of the table added by the user
Last Modified A timestamp of the last time someone edited the table shape. Adding or editing a row does not count.
Hidden “Deleting” the table in the UI only soft deletes it. Tables that are soft deleted can later be restored.
Created By The user that initially created the Table
Created At The date and time that the Table was initially created
Deleted By The user that deleted the Table
Deleted At The date and time that the Table was deleted
