  • 1.  Removing buttons / links from the GUI

    Posted Dec 16, 2009 05:11 AM
    Hello,  These are two very nasty questions I think;  1) Suppose I want to remove a button (specifically the "Create Issue" button on the Risk edit page) from the GUI.    How do I do this? (and I fully expect the answer to be "you can't", but I want the answer to be "you need to (unsupported) edit this piece of XML").  I have worked out how to change the label (edit the itl_view_XX.properties file), but the button is still on screen and active even if I remove all the text.    2) Suppose I want to remove the subtab LINK to "Issues"; so that I don't even get that option when I am in the "Project" - "Risks/Issues/Changes" tab  How do I do that?  I have spent some time looking through the code, but I can't spot the files that contain this.  --Hopefully someone can immediately give me the answer? (i.e. please don't go looking for it - you'll go bonkers looking through the Clarity code for too long!)  Dave.

    (deep breath now...)

    Answers

    (1) : its in the riskIssueProperties.xsl file (in META-INF\itl\vxsl\rim)

    I have to remove the "action/buttons" that call the conversion1ObjectCode and conversion2ObjectCode


    (2) : its in the projectPageTabset_IssuesRisks.xsl (also in META-INF\itl\vxsl\rim)

    I removed the whole <subtabs> section (I could just remove the indivdual subtabs, but that would have just left a single subtab there which is a bit pointless really!)

    If you do not give out the "Risk, Issue, Change Request" access rights (against a project - nut you can get the rights at OBS / GLOBAL level also) then you should not see the tab anyway?    Am I misunderstanding your question?   Can you elaborate?  Dave.

    I would GUESS that the file to amend is " projectPageTabset_TasksPortlet.xsl " in the META-INF\projmgr\vxsl\portlets\projects directory.  You'd have to try that one yourself and see!   Of course if you change any of these files you HAVE TO GET CA-support involved to verify/approve/caveat* your changes.  * - none of this is "supported" or "upgarde proof" or even guaranteed to work!

    Hey Dave/Chris,

     

    I am guessing you can do this only in On-Premise Installation not with On-Demand, correct?

    I apologize if this really trivial, I am a new bee.

     

    Thanks.

    It's not possible On Demand because it isn't supported and there is no way to edit those files to apply the changes.  It's not supported in On Premise either, strictly speaking.

     

    The original post and solution was from a long time ago before browsers and PPM had undergone various updates and changes.  It may be possible now to use something like the answer I gave in the following thread (and the two threads it links to) to achieve similar results now:
