Error simple to editor

Im getting this error when I type in viktor-cli start.

App definition is invalid: It is not supported to migrate from simple to editor

What does that mean?

Hi Anne,

A “simple” app-type can have multiple entities that can be accessed by multiple users, while the “editor” app-type only has a single entity (more info here). In case you change from simple to editor, this means there will be entities stored in the database, which is not supported for the “editor” type.

If you did not publish the application, you can clear your database locally using viktor-cli clear. Afterwards you should be able to start the app again with the changed app-type.
