Celonis Product Documentation

Setting up and managing your EMS

Your Celonis Execution Management System (EMS) enables your team to apply real-time business intelligence to the data in your systems. To ensure that your EMS provides secure access to the right people and gives them the correct permissions to perform their roles, you first need to set up your environment.

To set up your environment, you need admin permissions in your EMS, giving you access to the Admin & Settings area. Your initial EMS admins are given access to your environment when your account is provisioned.

With admin permissions, start with the following tasks:

Updating your team name and logo

Used as references within your EMS and visible to all team members.

For more information, see Updating your team name and logo

Configuring your EMS security features

Your security features allow you to control who or what can access your EMS and what authentication you require from them.

Topics here include: Team privacy, open sign up, IP-based restrictions, email signatures, signing in, account management, two-factor authentication, and session timeout settings.

For more information, see Configuring your EMS security features

Managing EMS permissions

Having already decided how users are onboarded or invited to your EMS (whether manually or through SSO options), you can now assign roles, groups, and permissions to those users.

Topics here include: User and team roles, inviting users to your EMS team, creating and managing groups, assigning granular user permissions, assigning variable admin permissions, creating API keys, creating and granting permissions to application keys, and viewing and exporting permissions.

For more information, see Managing EMS permissions

Managing users, licenses, and EMS activity

After configuring your EMS security settings and your permissions, you may need to manage your users, monitor your license consumption, and control your EMS activity.

Topics here include: Managing existing users, monitoring your license, viewing user login history, viewing your platform adoption, viewing your audit logs, implementing a user locking policy, setting contact admins, configuring a custom help link, accessing your download portal, and managing your system notifications.
