By default, object types cannot be represented as standalone documents in the data store. To define an object type to represent it as a document with an ID, revision, as well as created and updated timestamps, you should define with the
document
type. Apart from these additional fields, there’s no semantic difference between a document and an object.

Objects does not appear in the Content area of the sidebar, but document type does.
