HoriZZon is the web portal that can be used to share real-time content from Enterprise Studio with a wide range of users. The shared model packages and projects are stored and managed here and can be made available to other users. HoriZZon is also the place for registering and managing the users and user goups that need access to HoriZZon.

The exact location of your HoriZZon web portal is provided by BiZZdesign Support.
Preferred browsers for working with HoriZZon and Team Server are Chrome and Firefox.
After signing in to HoriZZon, the homepage appears showing the user's favorite views and popular views, which may be empty when visiting for the first time. There is also an overview of the last updated views. The popular and last updated views show the content of sites the user has access to, 12 views at the maximum. The homepage is the starting point for all features available in HoriZZon. The options that are available in the HoriZZon sidebar menu depend on your software configuration and on the roles you have as a user.
HoriZZon offers the following features. Which of these features are available in your HoriZZon depends on your BiZZdesign software configuration. Your HoriZZon may only have the user, group, package and project management feature, or these features plus the model information sharing and data entry features.
Sharing model information and data entry
The contents of model packages and projects can be shared with other HoriZZon users via sites. A site shows the diagrams and views of a model package or project. The data is read-only and can be viewed and used for analysis goals, like in generated viewpoints, charts and dashboards. The model information of a site is always kept in sync with the latest commits done on the package or project.
Data block editing
In addition to the regular read-only model information in sites, HoriZZon supports model data enrichment with self-defined information. Sites can be enriched with data by defining sets of additional object attributes (defined in Enterprise Studio) of which the values can be edited in data blocks in HoriZZon sites. To limit user edit rights for data blocks, data policies can be set up. Maintenance of the data blocks can be arranged in data update schedules and is executed via data tasks.
Workflows in HoriZZon help users to collaborate on model packages and projects. HoriZZon has one built-in workflow that is predefined by BiZZdesign, but also supports custom workflows, which you can define yourself. Workflow requests can be made for diagrams, views, objects and relations in a model. Participants perform workflow tasks to complete requests.
Kibana dashboards (from Elastic™) can be created and added to HoriZZon to be shared with other users. Kibana dashboards can offer additional insights into your Enterprise Studio data.
User, group, package, and project management
Users and groups
Users that need access to HoriZZon need to be registered in HoriZZon Team Server. What users can and cannot do and see in HoriZZon depends on the roles assigned to them and on any groups they are in. Groups can be defined to assign permissions to groups of users. To populate HoriZZon with users, they can be added manually, or using an external identity provider like Windows Active Directory or Azure AD. For detailed information about the available user roles and the associated permissions in HoriZZon, see User roles and permissions.
Model packages and projects
Shared model packages and projects that are created in Enterprise Studio are stored on HoriZZon. They can be managed in HoriZZon: users can be invited to packages and projects to collaborate on them, invitations can be revoked, access to packages and projects can be managed, and packages and projects can be removed from HoriZZon if needed.
In the BiZZdesign on-premise solution, HoriZZon has a number of configuration settings, like e-mail settings, setting a limitation on inviting users, changing the database configuration, and viewing the HoriZZon audit log. The HoriZZon settings also host the configuration of several identity providers like Active Directory and Azure AD. The settings are only accessible to users with the System Administrator role and in an on-premise solution.
When using a hosted HoriZZon, the System Administrator role is not available. Only the license information settings are available to Administrator users.
