Administering BMC Helix Digital Workplace Catalog
As a catalog administrator, you can set up BMC Helix Digital Workplace Catalog and its services so that your end users can leverage the catalog for their day to day activities.
To perform your administrative tasks, you use the BMC Helix Digital Workplace Catalog console that provides context-sensitive help. This console is the administration interface for authoring service catalogs and defining fulfillment workflows for service catalog items for business users to request. With this console, catalog administrators:
- manage user roles
- assign users to help them build out specific service catalogs
- measure the performance of services
If you are a Cloud customer, you are prompted to accept the license agreement upon your first login.
