SmartBox SmartObjects

K2 SmartObjects allow you to create and retrieve data by specifying object properties and associations using the K2 SmartBox service. K2 automatically creates the five standard methods available on all SmartObjects.

The SmartBox service type is used for SmartBox-based SmartObjects. SmartBox is a K2-managed SQL schema in the K2 database, and is used for storing data when you don't need to use an existing line-of-business data system.

SmartObjects you create using the K2 Designer typically use the SmartBox provider unless you change the SmartObject to use data from another service type. See SmartBox Service for more information.
