Chapter 3. Using the standalone editor perspective

You can use the standalone editor perspective of Business Central to access an asset’s specific editor. By using this perspective, you can open an asset’s editor and can modify the asset as required.

The path parameter must contain the complete path to the asset and the web address can end with #StandaloneEditorPerspective string. Also, by varying the path parameter, you can access a specific asset’s editor in the standalone mode.
