Hiding applications in appbar on screen basis


As you know we can hide application on the appbar with this setting from app management.


I wonder whether it is possible to hide some application in some screens or applications.

I have 3 applications (a,b,c) and application a needs to be shown on appbar if the user is on application b. And I need to hide application a in every other applications or screens. So in application c user should not see application a on the appbar.

I have very similar case, do you have any workaround solution?


Showing an application root in the appbar and applauncher is a global setting, it isn’t possible to turn this off and on depending which application a user is using. You would usually control access to specific apps via element security on the app dimension. If user groups for each app are non-overlapping then the requirement solves itself, but if users have access to multiple apps then of course they will see all the ones they are entitles to see.

However, there’s a couple of ways that this requirement could be solved.

  1. For each app have a separate content store and separate URL to access the application. (Or if I understand yoour description forrectly have one content store and URL for apps A & B and a separate one for app C where the users will see only app C).
  2. Create a custom landing page where the user must choose which app they want to work with. The selection runs a process in the contentstore instance which removes the user from the groups used for element security for the other apps.

I think #1 requires no explaination. It’s just a matter of having an additional content store instance and additional tomcat webapp and base URL. For #2 it shouldn’t be too much additional work provided you already have sepatate security groups for access to each app. If you don’t then you need to set this up first.

Thanks we will try 2nd scenario in the worst case.
