Learn the steps to create a new work center (Launchpad) or change an existing one in SAP BusinessObjects Access Control. Discover how to customize predelivered tabs or links to suit your business needs.
Key Concept
SAP BusinessObjects Access Control 10.0 is predelivered with four tabs: My Home, Setup, Access Management, and Reports and Analytics. These tabs are part of the work center (Launchpad). Each tab contains different sets of predefined links.

SAP BusinessObjects GRC 10.0 is based on Web Dynpro ABAP, and the presentation layer works through SAP NetWeaver Business Client (NWBC). NWBC is SAP’s desktop client using the latest smart client technology. NWBC can host existing user interfaces (UIs), including SAP GUI and Web Dynpro, as well as any other Web-based content.

In Figure 1, My Home, Setup, Access Management, and Reports and Analytics are different work centers or Launchpads predelivered with SAP BusinessObjects Access Control 10.0. Each work center or Launchpad contains different links. Figure 1 shows different links (e.g., Work Inbox, Approver Delegation, My Profile, Request Status, and Access Request). These links are part of the My Home work center.
