OBIEE 11g Removing Dashboard Links

Shahed Munir

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

  1. I know this a very old post, however I am having trouble removing the link itself, I know that editing the header.js file in the b_mozilla directory is necessary but removing everything relating to say headerhome still leaves the link working, even after clearing web cache an restarting presentation services.

    As an aside, removing the label still leaves the link behind with a small space to be able to click it so changing only the xml is insufficient.

    Any thought would be appreciated, cheers
