Creating a view to display a list of deployed applications

The Application list component is available in the Shared Components section of the View designer, and it is visible only if the following bundles are deployed:  

  • Shared Components
  • Shared Services

As a developer or an application business analyst, use the Application list component to display a list of all the deployed bundles. 

For example, you can create a view where you can select the required BMC Helix Innovation Studio applications from the list that you can access and customize.


Application business analysts can customize the objects developed in their own applications and that are marked customizable by the administrator, but cannot customize the objects developed in com.bmc.arsys in Best Practice Customization mode. For example, objects in core BMC applications like Foundation, Approval, and Assignment cannot be customized in Best Practice Customization mode.  For more information, see Customization layer.
