5.0.0 Highlights

Introducing Personas

5.0.0 introduces Personas, a new approach to streamline, optimize and simplify targeted self-service across disciplines. Our first Persona is Service Catalog, a paradigm shift to self-service that removes the complexity of multi-cloud, multi-format, multi-service offerings and presents a simple RBAC Catalog with one-click ordering of any resource. The new Self Service tool allows Admins to easily create Catalog Items using existing wizards and specs that minimize or even eliminate end-user input. Personas are assigned using existing Roles and users can be give access to multiple Personas with quick access to each Persona added to the global nav.

  • Personas further optimize interfaces and processes for target audiences.
  • The Service Catalog Persona further simplifies self-service provisioning of any resource with minimum or even zero user input.
  • Service Catalog users can add items to their cart and checkout with a few clicks, then access resource in the Service Catalog Dashboard or Inventory section.
  • Admins can quickly create Catalog Items using familiar processes and existing configurations, exposing only the options they choose to end users.
  • Instances and Blueprints/Apps are supported for Catalog Items in 5.0.0 with additional options coming, including Operational Workflows.
  • Personas and Catalog Items utilize existing RBAC permissions and Policies. Users can easily switch between assigned Personas.
