Customizing the new SAS Visual Analytics Hub 7.3

[ Edited ]

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.
