  • Use Data Actions to fetch complex data from the database or external systems after the Screen loads. Data Actions run on the server.

    Data Actions and client-side Aggregates concurrently start to fetch data after the Screen loads.

    Don't perform login operations in Data Actions expecting to use the GetUserId() function in its On After Fetch event. The parallel execution of Data Actions and client-side Agreggates in a Screen overrides the session authentication cookie. Using the GetUserId() function in the On After Fetch event might return an empty value.
