if your implementation makes use of the Business Control Center (BCC), you can enable single sign-on and add a Workbench extension that adds a link to the BCC within Workbench, facilitating navigation between the two tools.

The steps below assume that you have a BCC instance configured and running.

To integrate Workbench with the Business Control Center:

  1. Run the CIM and select [W] Workbench configuration – OPTIONAL, configuring the fields as described in the Oracle Commerce Platform Installation and Configuration Guide.

  2. Copy the workbench directory generated by the CIM from your BCC host machine to the machine hosting your Workbench installation.

  3. On your Workbench host, stop the Endeca Tools Service.

  4. Configure Workbench with the new BCC Home and BCC Access Control extensions.

    If you have not added any custom extensions of your own, you can overwrite the ws-mainMenu.xml and ws-extensions.xml files with the versions in the copied workbench directory. Otherwise:

  5. Merge the localized Strings in the copied workbench\locales directory with those in ToolsAndFrameworks\<version>\server\workspace\conf\locales:

    1. Open the Resources_<language> file you wish to modify.

    2. Copy in the following properties, with values corresponding to the text you wish to use:

      For example:

      # These resources should be localized.
      # BCC extension
      tool.bcc-home.name = Business Control Center
      tool.bcc-home.description = Create, preview, and deploy site content and product catalogs.
      # @i18n:begin:trans(false)
      tool.bcc-home.icon = http://myserver.example.com:8080/atg/images/
      # @i18n:end:trans
      # BCC Access Control extension
      tool.bcc-access-control.name = BCC Access Control
      # User Access menu
      menu.user-access.name = User Access
      menu.user-access.description = Add and remove Oracle Commerce Workbench and Business Control Center Users and modify their tool access and content permissions.
      # @i18n:begin:trans(false)
      menu.user-access.icon = /ifcr/apps/endeca/workbench-assets/images/home/icon_user.png
      # @i18n:end:trans
    3. Save and close the file.

    4. Repeat the above steps for each language in your Workbench implementation.

  6. Start the Endeca Tools Service.

To configure single sign-on with the BCC and Workbench, you can use Oracle Access Management or the Commerce Single Sign-On solution. See Integrating Workbench with Oracle Access Management Single Sign-On or Integrating Workbench with Oracle Commerce Single Sign-On for details.
