The Input Form builder creates an input page for a data service operation or a method and is suitable for operations that do not have result data to display.
It is much like View & Form builder, but the next action after submitting the input form is a user-specified action.
In most common applications of this builder, you need to specify only general inputs and input page options inputs. The general inputs require you to specify the service operation or method for which you are creating an input page and the next action to perform after the submit action. Optionally, you can specify a cancel button that lets the user omit submitting the form.
The input page options inputs specify the properties of the HTML page and HTML template for the specified operation. For example, you can specify whether input validation is to be performed based on the schema definitions.
