Unable to get "Component" in left sidebar Edited


I would need some help.

Component doesn't exist in my sidebar, and I don't find how to add it. It doesn't exist in "Project settings"

Any idea how to proceed? I don't see answer in documentation, each time they say to use it from sidebar, but I don't have it :-(

I have next-gen-project version, may be there is a difference here?

You can only use components in classic projects unfortunately. So, yes, you could try to switch to that kind of project if components are needed.

As a workaround you can use labels or create another custom field in your project but it won't offer you the same possibilities though.

Thanks for your answer

Hi @CARIOU Xavier 

Components do not exist in Next-Gen projects. You could add a custom field for them, but it would not behave the same as a component in a Classic project.

There is an open request to add them. You can vote on it or watch its progress here: JSWCLOUD-17601
