How to improve, simplify the dahsboard ?

Hello,

The new dashboard is nice but sometime you get too much information on the screen.
For example, if you just want to launch a form (PRD) you get many other information from the "Access Request" page that is useless and confusing for end-user, like :
- Make a Request
- My tasks
- My Permission
- History

Does anyone know how to remove uneeded links ?

thanks

Sylvain

Re: How to improve, simplify the dahsboard ?


as far as i know, it is only possible with css customization to hide
sections of dash application.

for this, i created the following custom.css file:


Code:
--------------------
#requestCont{
display:inline;
}
/*permission section*/
#permCont{
display: none;
}
/*history section*/
#myHistory{
display: inline;
}
/*request section*/
#myMakeReqContainer > fieldset{
display:none;
}
/*request header section*/
#myMakeReq > h2{
display:none;
}
/*featured items section*/
#myMakeReqFeaturedCont{
margin-left: 10px !important;
}

--------------------


to hide a section, you have to change the property display from inline
to none.

Hello Zsis,

This works fine, I tried on Linux and it works fine by setting up the custom.css file in the /opt/netiq/idm/apps/novlua user directory.

But do you know where the custom.css file must be copied on Windows 2012 Tomcat ?

Thanks

There are already some threads about this topic in the forum. One way
would be to run the tomcat service under a local user. Never tried to do
this with the system user.

Never got it to work as local system.
Had to run the service as a real user and use that users local home directory for the css file as:
C:\Users\username\netiq_custom_css\custom.css

This works fine for the dashboard page.

Now I wonder how to had a banner with logo to the custom.css and also how to customize the landing page ?

I did not find this information in other threads about the branding.

Thanks

I wouldn't spend too much time to customize dash and landing. There will
be a enhanced UI soon. I have seen some slides and it looks much better
than the current dash. I am very curious about the new release.
