Introduction

An enterprise may have multiple Business Units in turn each unit consists of multiple Business Orchestrations. Visualizing such complex Business solutions and representing them in a simplified manner is a big challenge.

This challenge can be solved by representing a single Business Orchestrations as Business Application and the Business Unit as a Business Application Group.

Adding a Business Application

A Business Application can be created and configured in two ways:

1. Add button

  • Click on the Add button available on the Business Application page.

  • Choose the Business Application option from the drop-down.

The user will be presented with a step-by-step wizard that will smoothly guide them through the process of providing the necessary information to create a Business Application in no time.

Refer to Creating a Business Application article for the creation process.

2. Context menu

  • Clicking on the context menu of a Business Application Group allows the user to create a Business Application. In this case, a Business Application will be created in the selected Business Application Group.

Refer to Creating a Business Application article for the creation process.

Editing a Business Application

  • A Business Application can be updated by selecting the Edit option from the context menu or the Edit option from the Business Applications List view.

  • Serverless360 allows users to update all the Business Application information, such as its name, service principal information, resource selection, and monitoring alerts.

Renaming a Business Application

Users can rename Business Applications at any time using the Rename option available in the Business Application context menu as well as in the Business Application List View.

Moving a Business Application

  • Serverless360 now allows users to move Business Applications from one Business Group to the other using the Move option available in the context menu of the corresponding Business Applications.

  • When a Business Application/Group is moved to a new Group, the permissions that a user has on the destination group are applied to the source BA/Group that is being moved.

  • For example, if a user has 'Contributor' permission on a destination group and 'Reader' permission on a Business Application outside that group, the application no longer has 'Reader' permission after being moved to the destination group. The destination group's 'Contributor' role is applied to the new application.

Deleting a Business Application

Business Applications can be deleted from Business Groups in two different ways:

  • The Delete option in the context menu of the corresponding Business Application in the Explorer view can be used to remove a Business Application.
  • Business Applications can be deleted when they are displayed in List view.

The deletion of a Business Application takes approximately one minute. It will take at least a minute to update the License consumption.

Grouping Business Applications

  • Consider an Order Processing business unit, which in turn has multiple business orchestrations such as segregating the orders, processing the orders, and dispatching the order.

  • All these orchestrations belong to one complex business unit. Now there is a need to visualize and monitor each orchestration as a siloed application as well as an orchestration that constitutes a complex Business unit. This requirement can be achieved by representing each orchestration as Business Application and the entire Business unit as a Business Application Group.

  • Once the resources are associated with the Business Application and monitoring is enabled, users can visualize such a complex Business unit and monitor it with ease. In this case, Business Applications can be grouped under a Business Group called Order processing, as shown below:

Quick Access

  • Serverless360 now allows users to group their Business Applications as Quick Access, giving them quick access to their prioritized Business Applications.

  • The Quick Access option for a Business Application can be found in both the card/list view of the Business Application homepage and the context menu of the Business Application in the tree structure.

  • Adding applications to quick access will add them to the Quick Access grouping on the Business Applications page.

Access permissions

  • Customers can grant access to specific Business Applications either by assigning user roles in the User management section or by using the Users option in the context menu of the corresponding Business Applications.
