In Control Hub, you can enable public apps or your own private embedded apps. Your users can access the apps directly in their Webex meetings and spaces.

Through the Webex Developer Portal, you can create your own apps and register them for use with Webex. See the Embedded Apps paper for details.

There are public and private embedded apps. We have approved public apps for use by everyone. You can add private apps and enable them just for your organization.

You can allow or block specific embedded apps for your organization through Control Hub.

1

Select Apps > Embedded Apps.

The Embedded Apps page shows the available apps and their status.
2

On the Public tab, you can click Allow new public apps by default to toggle all public apps and this switch changes the state of all current public apps to the new state. By default, all the apps are enabled.

3

To allow or block a specific app, click that app to open the App Details pane.

In the Access section, you can use the following settings to choose who can access that app:

  • All users: To allow all users. The status of the app changes to 'Allowed'.
  • Select Groups: To search and select the groups that you want to allow access. The status of the app changes to 'Limited'. See 'Configure groups in the app' tab for information on how to create groups.
  • No users: To restrict any user. The status of the app changes to 'Blocked'.
The Details pane provides links for more information about the app.

If the app requires access to PII, see the 'Configure PII in the app' tab.

Developers create new private embedded apps for your organization in the Webex Developer Portal. When the app is ready, they submit the app for approval through the portal. You approve or deny those requests in Control Hub.

1

Select Apps > Embedded Apps.

By default, the Private tab shows the status of any private app that was submitted for approval. You can also see the apps that developers are working on by clicking Show in-development apps.
2

Click the app that's pending approval to open the Details pane.

3

Set the Submission status radio button to one of the following:

  • In-development: To show the requests that are in development.
  • Denied: To show the apps that are denied approval.
  • Approved: To show the apps that are approved.
    • All users: To show all the approved users.
    • Select groups: To show the approved users of the selected groups. See 'Configure groups in the app' tab for information on how to create groups.

If the app requires access to PII, see the Configure PII in the app tab.

The developer sees your decision on the app's page in the Webex Developer Portal.

Personally Identifiable Information (PII) includes UUID, OrgID, email address, display name, first name, last name, Meeting ID, Meeting Title, Space ID, and Space Title.

By default, the PII restrictions are enabled for the apps. So, users outside of your organization will not be allowed to share any PII with a third-party app.

You can allow your app to share PII with third-party apps using the following steps:

1

Select Apps > Embedded Apps.

2

You can allow PII access to both Public and Private apps.

  • If your app is public, click the Public tab, and click the app from the list. Then, in the PII Restrictions section, disable the toggle.
  • If your app is private, click the Private tab, and click the app from the list. Then, in the PII Restrictions section, disable the toggle.
