Customizing the IBM Case Manager Client to hide or show existing banner content

Technote (FAQ)


Question

How can we customize the IBM Case Manager Client to hide or unhide/show existing banner content?

Answer

Use the following steps to customize the existing banner content displays:
1. In the share settings of the Solution Space, ensure that the Edit permission only applies to the Admin user or group that you want to see these links. All others users and groups should not be part of the Edit settings. Grant other users access as View users.
2. Update the banner.css file that includes a set of rules for hiding banner elements. These rules are commented out by default. In order to hide the Go to Spaces and Manage Spaces links from users having view access only, remove the comment markers surrounding them in the banner.css file.

The following banner.css file has been updated:

   .bspace-viewer .bannerActionLinksDiv #gotoSpacesLink {
                display: none;
   }
   .bspace-viewer .bannerActionLinksDiv #gotoSpacesLinkSeparator {
                display: none;
   }
   .bspace-viewer .bannerActionLinksDiv #manageSpacesLink {
                display: none;
   }
   .bspace-viewer .bannerActionLinksDiv #manageSpacesLinkSeparator {
                display: none;
   }

After editing the banner.css, do the following steps:
1. Stop the WebSphere Application Server
2. Delete the temp and wstemp directories under the <WAS_Install_Home>/profiles/<profilename>
3. Start WebSphere Application Server
4. Close all previously opened browser sessions on all client machines
5. Be sure to clear the browser caches on all client machines
6. Open new browser session on client machines and login to IBM Case Manager Client

The banner.css file is available under the http://<BSPACE_HOST>:<BSPACE_PORT>//mum/mycontenthandler/mm/dav/filestore/public/themes/bspaceTheme/banner/bspace directory. Use web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV) to access this directory.

More info about the WebDAV setup can be found at the IBM Business Space Information Center.
