BMC Helix Platform pages in BMC Digital Workplace
After the BMC Digital Workplace administrator configures and saves the BMC Helix Digital Workplace custom page in the Admin console, all end users can access it from the main navigation bar in the end user console. If the administrator adds more than one custom page, these pages are placed one next to the other.
If the administrator sets different page titles for different locales, the page titles are displayed for end users according to the locale specified in their browser settings.
If the user navigates to the custom page, the corresponding page of BMC Helix Platform application is automatically loaded in place of the BMC Digital Workplace page. The following illustration shows an example of a BMC Helix Platform page embedded to the BMC Digital Workplace application:
If you have RSSO configured, users are not prompted to log in to BMC Helix Platform when they access it from BMC Digital Workplace.
