Context types

Learn about context type, which is a Kyndryl Modern Operations Applications construct used to enable users to perform specific actions.
Context has two parts to it:
  • Context type
    represents a business entity such as a project, an environment, or a cost center. Context type may be associated with one or multiple context values. Managing context types is limited to System Admins and User Admins.
  • Context value
    represents the different values for the context type. Each context value is associated with one and only one context type.
