Context apps

Context apps are lightweight applications that communicate with the application frame to publish contextual information to the user. These applications subscribe to information published by the application frame and display only relevant content when it is available.

The purpose of associating a context application with an application is to make the context application available to users. The user can then display the context applications in the right panel, based on the user's permission level.

Default context applications, if any exist, are displayed under the Context Apps section. Default context applications are either required or optional. By default, all the required applications are enabled and optional applications are disabled. You can enable or disable default context applications at any time. Use the switch control to change the status of the context application. The Edit Screen ID Associations option is displayed if the context application subscribes to a context message. The Settings option is displayed only when there is at least one setting to display. The maximum number of context applications allowed to display under the Context Apps section is 20 per application instance.
