h4. Facepage and Components

The Facepage is the primary view of any resource such as an instrument, platform, or data product. Every resource has a Facepage view. The Facepage displays all of the key information needed to understand what the resource represents, including its properties and configuration, what other materials have been associated with it, and its operational and lifecycle states. This view provides a comprehensive display of resource settings and properties.
