Fully-featured out of the box

Get your admin panel up and running in a flash with all the features you expect from an advanced product.

CRUD

All of your CRUD operations are natively supported. The API automatically supports your data models' validation and allows you to easily extend or override any API routes' with your very own custom logic.

Search & Filters

Forest Admin has a built-in search allowing you to run basic queries to retrieve your application's data. Set advanced filters based on fields and relationships to handle complex search use cases.

Sorting & Pagination

Sorting and pagination features are natively handled by the Admin API. We're continuously optimizing how queries are run in order to display results faster and reduce the load of your servers.

Custom Actions

A custom action is a button which allows you to trigger an API call to execute a custom logic. With virtually no limitations, you can extend the way you manipulate data and trigger actions (e.g. refund a customer, apply a coupon, ban a user, etc.)

Export

Sometimes you need to export your data to a good old fashioned CSV. Yes, we know this can come in handy sometimes :-)

Segments

Dashboards

Forest Admin is able to tap into your actual data to chart out your metrics using a simple UI panel, a SQL query or a custom API call.

Custom HTML/CSS/JS

Code your own views using JS, HTML, and CSS to display your application data in a more appropriate way (e.g. Kanban, Map, Calendar, Gallery, etc.).

Third-party Integrations

How it works

The Forest Liana is an open-source plugin that introspects all your data model and dynamically generate the Admin API hosted on your servers. The Forest Admin interface is a web application that handles communication between the admin user and your application data through the Admin API.

Forest Schema Forest Schema

Authentication

Forest Admin uses a two-step authentication system to connect you to both Forest Admin server to interact with the UI configuration and to your Admin API to get access to your application data.

Each of these step is backed by a JWT authentication where the secret to access to the UI configuration is given by Forest Admin and the secret to interact with your Admin API is chosen freely by you and is never disclosed to anyone.

No 3rd-party Tracking

The Forest Admin interface has an option to completely disable any 3rd-party provider that could track data available from your browser to guarantee the respect of data privacy.

IP Whitelisting

The IP whitelisting feature allows you to create a list of trusted IP addresses or IP ranges from which your users can both access to the Forest Admin interface and interact with your Admin API.
