Database information

Hi, I’m new to Adalo and I have no experience, I’m building an application that requires constant changes to the database after publication and I would like to know if it’s better to use an external database or I can safely use the internal one of Adalo through online bilding. To explain better, can the internal database be modified once the app has been published using the online bilder?

Hey Marcops,

Adalo Database is just like any other external database - you can easily make changes to it after you publish it. However, there are two possible answers to your question, depending on what you need:

  • If you update the structure of the database (e.g. deleting, updating, or adding columns) and set up actions for the application, you’ll need to launch an update of the application(if your app is published).
  • On the other hand, if you only update the data (rows or tuples), you won’t need to relaunch or republish the application.

I hope this information is helpful! If you have any further questions or want to delve deeper into your requirements, I’d be happy to connect and discuss further. You can reach me at or through my LinkedIn profile at

you have been very helpful, thank you very much
