    Remove 'dashboards' dropdown from the title bar

    paragrk

      Hi,

       

      Is there a way we can remove the 'Dashboards' dropdown next to Home link from the title bar? If yes, then how would one navigate to different dashboards?

      Or, is there an alternative to remove the 'Most Recent' dashboard link when we click the 'Dashboards' dropdown?

       

      thx.

          Why you want to remove that? Is there any specific reason for that?

           

          Thanks,

            The following are the links that needs to go for the dashboard users.

            1) Home

            2) Catalog

            3) New

            4) Open

             

            I have found that saw.header.xml file located in

             

            C:\bi11gbeta2\Oracle_BI1\bifoundation\web\app\res\b_mozilla\common folder has the following tags :

             

            <resource id="kmsgHeaderHome" />

            <resource id="kmsgHeaderNew" />

            <resource id="kmsgHeaderOpen" />

            <resource id="kmsgHeaderDashboard" />

            <resource id="kmsgHeaderCatalogPage" />

            <resource id="kmsgHeaderOpenCatalogDialog" />

             

            And saw.header.xml file located in

             

            C:\bi11gbeta2\Oracle_BI1\bifoundation\web\msgdb\l_en\messages\uicmsgs folder has the text for the above message tags.

             

            For example :

             

            <WebMessage name="kmsgHeaderHome"><TEXT>Home</TEXT></WebMessage>

            <WebMessage name="kmsgHeaderOpenCatalogDialog"><TEXT>Open...</TEXT></WebMessage>

             

            So replacing or modifying above message tags will change the caption on UI -however this cannot be done user or group specific..Once change is done it will

             

            be applicable for all users.

             

            Also header.js located in C:\OBIEE11G\Oracle_BI1\bifoundation\web\app\res\b_mozilla folder where the header messages are referenced -this may need to be

             

            modified for removing the links (not just tesxt)

            Note that you need to restart all services once you make any changes to xml files

             

            for reference...check this

            Thanks,
