If you are an SBC administrative user, you have access to the Custom Workspaces window where you can create customized EMA workspaces for other users. This tool is particularly useful in defining the scope of EMA usage for non-administrative users by restricting them to certain EMA features, screens, and tools. 


  • Customized workspaces do not affect the EMA objects displayed on the left navigation panel or other tertiary navigation.
  • Permissions and roles cannot be configured with this tool. Use Workspace Settings to configure permissions for various roles and users.

To View Custom Workspaces

As an administrative user, from the SBC main screen navigate to Administration > Users and Application Management > Custom Workspaces

The Custom Workspaces window opens and lists any currently configured custom workspace settings.
