How to make that in web by default in ess the left menu would be minimized ?
it's just a requirement of the management.
Since it duplicates the links on the main screen, which are made in the form of icons. That's why need hide\minimized it by default.
Yes, i did check web.xml and did not found it.
showNavIcon - Show or Hide ICON in left menu. not menu itself.
You're right. I missed that. That's only the icon and not the menu. The only other parameter is enableSideBarMenu but that does not sound right either. I could not find any parameter for collapsing navigator. You may want to submit this as an enhancement in the Idea Exchange.
Only consolidation is that once, you collapse the navigator, the web client will remember that mode for the next login. Not useful if you left it open before you logoff.
