Configuring
BlackBerry Dynamics Launcher

The
BlackBerry Dynamics Launcher
is a UI component that is accessed in
BlackBerry Dynamics
apps  (for example,
BlackBerry Work
) with the
BlackBerry Dynamics Launcher
button. The
BlackBerry Dynamics Launcher
creates a placeholder location for app settings. The
BlackBerry Dynamics Launcher
is a library module with numerous functions, currently comprising of the following: 
  • The user's name, photo, presence, and status
  • A list of
    BlackBerry Dynamics
    -powered apps and modules installed on the device.
  • Quick create options to easily compose an email, create a note, schedule a calendar event, or add a contact, regardless of which app is currently open.
To provide this rich user experience, the
BlackBerry Dynamics Launcher
library requires
BEMS
server-side services to:
  • Synchronize policy-based sections (modules) between applications. For example, when
    Docs
    is enabled in
    BlackBerry Work
    , the
    Docs
    icon is enabled in the
    BlackBerry Dynamics Launcher
    , even when it is opened outside of
    BlackBerry Work
    in apps like
    BlackBerry Access
    or
    BlackBerry Connect
    .
  • Fetch company directory information about the user to display the correct name and picture.
  • Fetch presence information for the user and display the appropriate status (available, busy, away, do not disturb) and the user's presence message.
The required server-side services for the
BlackBerry Dynamics Launcher
comprise of the following:
  • Presence
    (service id = com.good.gdservice.enterprise.presence)
  • BlackBerry Directory Lookup
    (service id = com.good.gdservice.enterprise.directory)
  • BlackBerry
    Follow-Me Store (service id = com.good.gdservice.enterprise.followme)
The client entitlement app to use these services is
Good
Enterprise Services (AppID = com.good.gdserviceentitlement.enterprise). For information on entitlement apps that are required when the services are installed on separate computers, see Server-side services.
BlackBerry Dynamics
clients, like the
BlackBerry Work
app, check the server list for available
BEMS
instances hosting these services. This means the list must be populated with at least one computer that hosts
BEMS
to enable
Good
Enterprise Services. In addition, the
Good
Enterprise Services entitlement app must be added to at least one App Group in
BlackBerry UEM
like
"All users"
or in
Good Control
like
"Everyone"
.
