i have the same need, i tried many thing in menu, process without success
please if you have the solution can you share it
Why cannot you create a change profile in which Default category would be the category you require and assign the profile to that particular user.
1. Create a new change profile
2. Goto Category tab
3. In Default change category set the category you want the user to open
4. Assign the profile to the operator in Change profiles.
5. Create a new user role
6. In the user role->Change profiles field select the change profile you had created
7. Assign the user role to the operator
8. Logout and login and try to open a change.
Thank a lot for your help
what i need is to keep user the possibility to open change with different category, and create a quick link in menu that open a change with specific category
i hope it's clear
Still I could not understand you clearly....You want to click on Open a new change link and you want it to open a
new change record with default change category like "Hardware" without showing category QBE. Is that you want?
Regarding how you can assosciate menu item "Open a new change" to particular operator, you can check the menu
record "ChM MAIN MENU" by running db->menu->Search for the menu record. In the menu record you will find
"Open New change" as particular menu item...
Now how does this menu item is assosciated with a operator? It is assosciated with operator record->Startup tab.
If you look at falcon operator record, you will see in Startup tab 1st parameter being called for RAD "menu.manager"
is name and the value is "MAIN MENU".
Now if you search for "MAIN MENU" in menu records, you will find "ChM MAIN MENU" menu record been called...
Now if you want to create new menu item for your operator, check the menu record that is called in your operator
record and in that menu record add the menu item "Open new change" from "ChM MAIN MENU" menu record(It
should be identical)
Hope that helps...
Points appreciated by clicking Kudos star on left....
thanks a lot for your quick replay
yes what i wnt is toi create a link in menu to open a default change without ask operator to chose category
i already add in the menu the link , but the problem is how to bypass the category qbe list, or how to pass a parameter in the menu to skip category qbe list
i add the link in the home menu and i want that this link be availible for all operator
the problem that i want also to keep the "open new change " default link to use it when the category of change is not the default one
maybe it's more clear now
i've been struggling with the same issue, but the problem is the manu calls a rad application and we cant modify it .
have you reached a solution, i would really appreciate the help .
NOTE: This is a duplicate thread (this answer is posted in both threads).
To create a navigator/menu item which allows automatic selection of change category:
First, define a new Process (Tailoring > Document Engine > Processes)
Process Name: openConfigChange (or whatever you want to call it)
Enter the Initial Expression: $setCategory="CATEGORY_NAME"
On the RAD panel, in the first application enter: cmc.open.from.menu
Second, update the cm.open Process (which is called by cmc.open.from.menu):
In the "Expressions evaluated before RAD call" for the cm.open RAD application, enter:
if ($setCategory="CATEGORY_NAME" then category in $L.file="CATEGORY_NAME"; $setCategory=NULL
Third, add the Menu item to the Menu record which will call the new Process:
Parameter Name: name
Parameter Value: openConfigChange (or whatever you called it)
Enter a description, option # and condition.
