Configure service publications

A service publication is a container in which you can specify the service templates and/or services that you want to be available for use in a specific Automation or Workspace Control environment. You can configure service publications at Setup > Service Publications.

A new Identity Director environment contains two default service publications:

  • Automation: This service publication contains a default Run Book Template, which you can use in Automation to publish Run Books as a service in Identity Director.
  • Workspace Control: This service publication contains the default Workspace Template, which you can use in Workspace Control to create new services in Identity Director, and use them as access principle for applications, printers and other objects.

You can edit these service publications or configure new service publications.
