xpert.ivy server: Request a task list, manage substitution, absences and so one is already limited to the appropriate WebApp the requesting user is defined in.

Is there a possibility to request tasks, manage absences etc. for all WebApps by a single admin user (defined in a WebApp) which has access to all the other WebApps on the same system/server?

Does this question belong to Xpert.ivy 3.9 or 4/5.x?

Sorry: This belongs to xpert.ivy 5.x.

With the currently available API, it seems not possible to manage an absence of a person/user applicationwide (or outside a currently session i'm logged in) (the user exists normally only once in a company, so an absence should be valid for all applications this user is created in). And for an admin, it would be nice if there is a possibility to manage also substitutions for users in different applications. I can manage that by accessing the ivy database directly, but I didn't found any way to do that over the API.

It is possible but not with a public API.

However, a better solutions may be to have only one application where you deploy multiple different projects (a.k. web application) into. Use roles so that only users that are allowed to work on a web application can do so.

If this is not possible, you can try the following:

To access all applications running on a server you can use the following non public API (it may or will change in future without any notice ...):

import java.util.List;
import java.util.concurrent.Callable;

import ch.ivyteam.ivy.application.ApplicationConfigurationManagerNavigationUtil;
import ch.ivyteam.ivy.application.IApplication;
import ch.ivyteam.ivy.application.IApplicationConfigurationManager;
import ch.ivyteam.ivy.environment.Ivy;
import ch.ivyteam.ivy.security.SecurityManagerFactory;

public class AccessToAllApplications 
    public List<IApplication> getAllApplications() throws Exception
        return SecurityManagerFactory.getSecurityManager().executeAsSystem(new Callable<List<IApplication>>(){

            public List<IApplication> call() throws Exception 
                return getAllApplicationsAsSystem();

    protected List<IApplication> getAllApplicationsAsSystem() 
        IApplicationConfigurationManager appConfigManager = ApplicationConfigurationManagerNavigationUtil.getApplicationConfigurationManager(Ivy.request().getApplication());
        return appConfigManager.getApplications();

The executeAsSystem method is used to turn off security. If you use it then security has to be ensured by the process developer.
