Node type


Modifying this entity requires certain user authorization. For more information, see User Groups.

A Node type is a description of the information that is in a Node. Node types let you group and classify information and information flows, and control the processing of the data in a Node using Event configurations. The Node types also facilitate the task of separating files containing an attachment from the attachments themselves. You can associate a stylesheet with a Node type to visualize the contents of the Nodes.
