Getting Started with Parse

  • Register and get started with the basic plan
  • Create an application – just requires the name
  • Go to the Data Browser, choose the application and create a Class – this is equivalent to the Table in the DB
  • There are standard fields that come with every class and add additional columns you need – i just created a Name column
  • Start creating rows and add data to them – all the default columns will be auto filled, add values to the custom columns

Creating Table and Data in Parse

  • Copy the Application Id and Client Key from the Overview Page – you will need these to initialize in your android application java code

Keys required for Parse Application

  • In your main activity for the application that uses parse call the following initializeParse method from your onCreate method


                    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {


private void initializeParse() {
Parse.initialize(this, “NDUawcm7DwXAkkSnuLMMiG6waq7l2RgOOu6YOpZB”,
ParseACL defaultACL = new ParseACL();
ParseACL.setDefaultACL(defaultACL, true);
