Hello, 

 

i try to configure the "new" SAS VA 7.3 Hub for a customer.

His idea is to show the people only the reports that they are allowed to use. 

 

So i have to remove all the things showed in the picture from the Hub, for single users. 

 

My Problem is that simply removing Capabilities in the MSC is not enough.

 

I have to remove functions (Browse, Shortcut, Collection), Welcome Screen, Recent and Links.

 

Configured Collections and Favorites should be displayed.

 

Is there any possability to create different themes/templates for the Hub?

 

 I hope someone is able to help me solving this problem. 

 

Kind regards

 

Carsten

Hi Carsten.

Were you able to solve this issue? I am also interested how to limit the appearance of objects in the hub.

It's easy to turn off Browse, Shortcut, Collection and the Explorer/Designer buttons. They are under 'Action Button Area' under Tiles. Recent and Links can be turned off in the same way, they're also under 'Tiles'. It's all in Application Options --> Settings. (In 7.4)

That was easy- I somehow managed to miss Tiles selection myself when opening the settings page.

 

But do you know if these settings related to tiles can be somehow manged globally for set of users by administrator?

Um I've not tried to be honest - I know you can replace the samples and push out reports via Administrator in the Hub - Have a look in the SAS Management Console as well. There might be a section on Hub management in the SAS documentation.

There's some information about administering the SAS Visual Analytics Hub in the SAS Visual Analytics 7.3: Administration Guide.  For example, it covers setting up guest access (which automatically removes individualized features like alerts and history and lets the admin decide about favorites and preferences as read-only).

 

SAS Visual Analytics Hub does not provide a way to customize its appearance or the text that displays in the Welcome tile.

Dear Joy.

 

Is there any way to hide links, welcome note recent etc. for all the users.

 

These users are registered sas users.

Hi Ashish,

 

Unfortunately, you can't hide the Welcome tile for all users in the 7.x releases. Individual users can hide the Welcome tile using the three dots in the upper right and selecting Hide.

 

An administrator can share links with users and hide shared links in 7.x. However, they can't hide links that individual users have added.

 

Regards,

Joy

Thanks. however what about other tiles apart from welcome note. Is it possible to hide other tiles using administrator credentials for all the user ?

From the UI, the administrator can't hide other tiles like Favorites. However, there are some administration settings for the home page, like setting guest access. For information about roles, capabilities, and configuration properties for the home page, see pgs 70-73 in the SAS Visual Analytics 7.3: Administration Guide (PDF).

Joy

HI Rain,

 

Did you find any work around for hiding links, welcome notes etc. for all the users globally ?
