How to send broadcast message to EM administrators in 13c Cloud Control

This feature provides a way for the super administrator to send a pop-up message to all users of Enterprise Manager. Users who are currently logged in to Enterprise Manager will receive a pop-up message from the super administrator. This message is sent using Enterprise Manager Command Line Interface (EM CLI) send_system_broadcast verb and can include various message severity levels. This is particularly useful in preventing a managed target from being taken off line without notice to other Enterprise Manager users.

This feature enhances the user's experience by providing a single interface for administrator communication within Enterprise Manager.
