      Hello Desiree Moeller

      My question is around the Out-of-the-box Web Content Card in SAP Workzone.
      Why this card can only be used as a singleton, namely with one single URL defined in the card's configuration in Administration Console/UI Integration/Cards/ ?
      Would you or your colleagues know ?
      Thx; Piotr

      Hi Piotr,

      thanks for your question. In case of the UI Integration Cards you have the choice to select the specific destination that you want to target (admin view).

      In the case of web content cards the purpose is that every workspace can select on their own the target (e.g. web-url) they want to include (key user view).

      Best regards,

      Desiree
