WebSphere Commerce EnterpriseFeature Pack 3: Deprecated featureWebSphere Commerce Professional

Enabling the Workspace Administration Tool

It is recommended that you use the Workspace Management tool in the Management Center to manage your workspaces. That is, after installing Feature Pack 3, the Workspace Administration Tool is disabled by default, with the Workspace Management tool replacing all of its workspace management features. However, if you have business reasons to continue using the Workspace Administration Tool, you can re-enable it.


  1. Open WebSphere Commerce Developer and switch to the Enterprise Explorer view.
  2. Open the following file: WebSphere Commerce DeveloperWC/xml/tools/workspaceadmin/WorkspaceAdmin.xml
  3. Locate the following snippet:
    <menuitem name="menuWorkspace" enabled="false" taskUsages="all" users="all">
  4. Change the enabled flag to true:
    <menuitem name="menuWorkspace" enabled="true" taskUsages="all" users="all">
  5. Save your changes and close the file.
  6. Deploy your changes to your production environment.

What to do next

After re-enabling the Workspace Administration Tool, you can Open the Workspace Administration Tool.
