Column Name Description / Actions

Workspace Name

Name created for this workspace. Click on a Workspace Name in this column to edit that workspace.


Name of the zone where this workspace resides.


This workspace is enabled if this box is checked. When this box is checked, the workspace is enabled, which means it can be accessed. In the case where a job or job step cannot access the workspace, the job will queue, waiting for the workspace to become available.


If the box is checked, the workspace is local, which means files in the local workspace are accessible only from the resource that originally created the file.


(Optional) Plain text or HTML description for this object. If using HTML, you must surround your text with <html> …​ </html> tags. Allowable HTML tags are <a>, <b>, <br>, <div>, <dl>, <font>, <i>, <li>, <ol>, <p>, <pre>, <span>, <style>, <table>, <tc>, <td>, <th>, <tr>, and <ul>.

  • For example, the following HTML:

    <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> <i>Note:</i> For more information about the <b>abc</b> object, see <a href=""></a>. </span> </p>

    renders as follows:
