    Is it possible to use the OpenAccess UI/Designer tool when working with custom modules that derive from Generic Content (i.e. similar to the Products module of the SDK)? I don't see anywhere in the designer UI to indicate that a new class should inherit from "Content" (or any other base class).

    Or, should we be defining all of our classes and mappings manually?

    Thank you!

    Hello John,

    Currently OpenAccess UI designer cannot use base classes defined with a fluent API. You can define your model with the UI designer only if you don't inherit from our base classes. I suggest you use the fluent code mapping for your module.

    Kind regards,
