Getting Started
This page is dedicated to demonstrate a real-life workflow with the intention of helping users to get familiar with Snowray. As part of the workflow, users will start off by creating a Value Set and then editing its content. Next, after learning how to browse and edit Resources, users will be introduced to release management. Finally, the released Value Set will be exported enabling it to be shared.
To benefit the most from the tutorial, start from the very beginning, and continue step by step, as it will walk you through the most important functionalities of Snowray.
