Exploring the user interface

As you explore the user interface, you'll discover various components and features that empower you to effectively manage your tasks and access the functionalities relevant to your user persona. Below, we'll delve into the key sections of our interface.

Portal navigation

The header

The portal header provides the context of your location inside the platform. It's a persistent element that remains at the top of every page. Depending on the service context you are in, the header bar provides additional navigation capabilities that are specific to that service.

It offers quick access to essential features and tools:
  1. The app launcher - allows you to switch between different products or modules within the platform.

  2. Your current location - shows your location within the platform.

  3. The help menu - provides access to comprehensive documentation, support resources, and assistance channels for any questions or issues you may encounter.

  4. The notification menu - keeps you informed about updates, alerts, and notifications relevant to your user persona and activities within the platform also allows you to configure notification settings. See details about reading notifications and managing them.

  5. The tenant picker - displays the active tenant and enables swift tenant switching.

  6. The user menu - grants you access to your user profile preferences, allowing you to customize your experience as needed.

The left navigation bar

The left navigation bar provides quick and easy access to core sections of the platform.

Depending on your user persona and role, you'll find the following options:

  1. Home: Return to the Home page, your central hub for platform navigation and task management.

  2. Service icons (you see only services relevant to your user persona): Allows you to seamlessly transition between the various services and modules available within the platform, ensuring you can access the tools specific to your responsibilities.

  3. Admin (only for admins): If you are an admin, the Admin section contains tools and controls for configuring and managing the platform according to your organization's needs.

You can change what is displayed by default on the left navigation bar from the user menu > Preferences.

Home page


The Home page serves as the landing page for users after they log in. It is designed to provide a personalized experience based on your role within the organization (user personas) and the services provisioned in the tenants you have access to.

For example, citizen developers see their automations, apps, job run history, pending actions, and automation ideas. As an administrator or a user with a non-Citizen Developer license, you can quickly access your Orchestrator services and see metrics on license consumption and distribution.


The Organization Administrator role gives you full View permissions for the Home page.

Users with the User role do not have View permissions on the follwing widgets on the Home page: usage trend and distribution of licenses.

Widget configuration by persona

The Home page is customized to cater to different user personas within your organization. Each user persona is associated with specific widgets that provide relevant information and functionalities. Below is a mapping table that illustrates the widgets available for each user persona:
