Using SBM Composer with Other SBM Components

SBM Composer can be used independently of runtime environments to design process apps, but several SBM runtime components play a role in activating process apps for users:

Application Repository

Along with managing deployment to SBM runtime environments, Application Repository provides basic storage, versioning, and patching capabilities that allow for collaborative development. After you create or modify a process app in SBM Composer, you can check it in to the repository so that it is available for other designers.

To open the repository, click the Application Repository button on the Deployment tab of the ribbon. If SBM Composer is not connected to a runtime environment, use this URL: http://serverName:port/mashupmgr.

Application Administrator

Used to configure applications with runtime data, such as role assignments for users and groups, after process apps are deployed. SBM's "quick administrator" feature simplifies this process by creating a project for each workflow and default notifications when a process app is first deployed. Also, the person who deploys a process app for the first time is automatically assigned to all roles.

For a list of tasks performed in Application Administrator compared to SBM Composer, refer to Comparison: SBM Composer and SBM Application Administrator.

To open Application Administrator, use this URL: http://serverName/tmtrack/tmtrack.dll?shell=swc&StdPage&Template=appadmin/index.html.

End-user Interfaces

SBM has multiple Web interfaces that enable users to interact with process apps designed in SBM Composer:
  • SBM Work Center

    A simplified end-user interface. Users can access the Work Center by opening the following URL:

  • Service Request Center

    A Service Support Manager portal that enables users to submit requests and access knowledge management items. Users can access the Request Center by opening the following URL:
