How can I hide specific modules in the SilkCentral Test Manager Dashboard window?

ANSWER
----------------------------------
If you are only interested in using a specific module such a Issue Manager you can hide some of the options from Test Manager using a configuration file. To do so you need to edit the SccFrontendModules.xml file located in:
C:\Program Files\Segue\SilkCentral Test Manager 8.x\conf\frontendserver.

The original unedited contents of this file are:

 
 

 


com.segue.tm.frontendserver.TestManagementModule
com.segue.radar.webgui.module.SilkRadarModule
com.segue.scc.webgui.module.SccConsoleModule
com.segue.scc.webgui.module.SccHelpModule 



For example, if you want to hide the Help settings module within SilkCentral Test Manager you will need to comment out the node:

com.segue.scc.webgui.module.SccHelpModule


So the edited SccFrontendModules.xml file will now read (note the change in bold):

 
 

 


com.segue.tm.frontendserver.TestManagementModule
com.segue.radar.webgui.module.SilkRadarModule
com.segue.scc.webgui.module.SccConsoleModule




After making changes to the SccFrontendModules.xml file you will need to restart the SilkCentral Frontend server. To do this:

  • Go to the machine that the Segue Frontend server is installed on.
  • Right Click the SilkCentral Service Manager in the system tray
  • Click the Segue Frontend Server tab
  • Click Stop
  • Wait about 30 seconds and click Start


When you log in you should no longer see that Help module. This configuration can also be performed on other modules within the xml file. Below is a description of each of the modules.
com.segue.tm.frontendserver.TestManagementModule
Commenting out this module will result in the Test Manager settings disappearing from View in Test Manager dashboard.

com.segue.scc.webgui.module.SccConsoleModule
Commenting out this module will result in the Administration settings disappearing from View in Test Manager dashboard.

com.segue.scc.webgui.module.SccHelpModule
Commenting out this module will result in the Help settings disappearing from View in Test Manager dashboard.

com.segue.radar.webgui.module.SilkRadarModule
Commenting out this module will result in the Issue Manager settings disappearing from View in Test Manager dashboard.
