    Hide Edit Dashboard Icon on top right of the Dashboard page

    sarvan

      Experts,

       

      Is there a way to hide the edit dashboard icon entirely from the dashboard page.  We want to disable all controls like 'export to excel', clear my customization', 'Add to briefing book' etc kinda of links on a particular dashboard page hiding the edit dashboard icon itself.  Any input is apprecieated.

       

      OBIEE Version : 11.1.1.9.x

       

      Regards,

      Sarvan

          Hi,

          If you set security properly most of the links will go away.

          Why do you want to remove functions like "Refresh" and "Clear my customization" ?

          (If you disable all the customization options there is not a lot that can be customized ...)

            Hi,

             

            Thanks for the respone.  Well, this customization is just for one dashboard that has no business data.  I got your point.  Any alternate, can this be done through some javascript?

              So, if it's for one dashboard and you really want to do it ... it's easy.

              Keep in mind that OBIEE is a webapp, this means the front-end is just a web page and the easiest way to define how something is visible (or how to hide it) is CSS.

              Often people think JavaScript is the solution when in the end you don't want to disable the links etc., you just want to hide them (if users can't see where to click to get the menu they will never be able to use the menu).

              So using the developer toolbar of your browser you just inspect the code of the page and you find out that Oracle was nice enough to assign an ID to the element where you can click and show the menu, so all you need is few lines of CSS:

               

              <style>
              span#uberBar_dashboardpageoptions {
                  display: none;
              }
              </style>
