How to make a menu item invisible?

Hi,

 

I am using PPM 8.04 and need to disable/invisible some menu items.

Is it possible?

 

Any help is appreciated

Hi TurboMan,

 

If you want to hide menu to the user then you can do this by modfying the MENU.XML file. Below are the step.

 

This will show menus to only users having the ADMINISTRATOR license or have PPM Admin grants (or any specific security group)

 

  1. Go to <PPM HOME>/conf/menus
  2. Make a backup copy of menu.xml
  3. Open menu.xml
  4. What ever section/Menu you want to hide.. then change/add this section

    (only user with admin license can view the menu)

    <security>
        <license reference-code="7"/>
    </security>

    OR
    (identify the appropriate Access Grant from table KNTA_ACCESS_GRANTS_NLS)

    <security>
    <license reference-code="7"/>
    OR
    <access-grant reference-code="<Access grant of edit users>"/>
    </security>

  5. Stop the server
  6. Remove/Delete TMP and WORK diecroty from <PPM_HOME>/server/<INSTANCE_NAME>
  7. Run kUpdateHtml.sh
  8. Start the server
  9. Now Clear the server chache

More details can be found in HP document "Customizing the Standard Interface.pdf" page 34 (changing Menu Item Text).
