  • 1.  Remove Export to Excel & Power Point

    Posted Aug 23, 2017 08:03 AM



    we recently upgraded to version 01 39


    We would like to remove the 'Export to Excel' and 'Export to Power Point' icons in the top right of the display when in the 'General' tab. We'd also like to remove these options from the drop-down menu if possible.

    In previous versions of CA PPM it was possible to do this by changing some files in the config. It may have been in clarity\META-INF\prodpack\wmd but I am not entirely sure.


    Can anyone please advise if they know how to do this? Thank you!

    It seems to be different in version 15.2 however. We updated the CSS and restarted services but no luck. I will continue to work on this and see what I can come up with.

    We managed to resolve this.


    In the clarity.min.css file located here: clarity\webroot\ui\uitk\css


    we added the below:


    #portlet-header-hide-area-6025010 > span.ppm_button_menu > a:nth-child(4){
    #portlet-header-hide-area-6025010 > span.ppm_button_menu > a:nth-child(5){


    Restarted all services.


    This allowed us to hide the icons, as well as the export to excel & power point options in the drop-down menu.
