A workspace is a virtual environment that groups systems, workflows, and studies to restrict user access to them: a user can access these resources only when granted the required permissions to that workspace.

Akamas defines two user roles according to the assigned permission on the workspace:

  • Contributors (write permission) can create and manage workspace resources (studies, telemetry instances, systems, and workflows) and can also do exports/imports, view all global resources (Optimization Packs, and Telemetry Providers), and see remaining credits;

  • Viewers (read permission) can only access optimization results but cannot create or modify workspace resources.

Workspaces and accesses are managed by users with administrative privileges. A user with administrator privileges can manage licenses, users, workspaces, and install/deinstall Optimization Packs, and Telemetry Providers.

Workspaces can be defined according to different criteria, such as:

  • By department (e.g. Performance, Development)

  • By initiative (e.g. Poc, Training)

  • By application (e.g. Registry, Banking..)

A workspace is described by the following property:

  • a name that uniquely identifies the workspace


A workspace is an Akamas resource that can be managed via CLI using the resource management commands. See also this page devoted to commands on how to define users and workspaces.
