How to hide Configuration Tab?

Hello,

I apoligize if this has been covered before, I tried to find the answer in the mailing list archives - but was unable.

I was just wondering if there was a way through permissions / acls / etc to stop regular users from seeing the “Configuration” link at the top of the home page / search page, or if you have to manually hide that? I’m pretty confident I haven’t done anything to strange to my RT installation yet, as it’s pretty fresh - but haven’t been able to find a method to hide it.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Running Version: 2.0.13, in case thats relevant.

You may not want to, and I don’t think you can. They need to be able to get
in there to change their passwords.

Nostalgia isn’t what it used to be

Passwords are changed under the Preferences link, right?

I think Alan’s asking about the Configuration link.

If you want to give them the ability to do so, can`t you simply give them the rights and let them use the “preferences” link in $RT/Elements/Header?

Hm.

I see your point, but when under the users tab it lists all of the other users listed, which could leave the system open to a brute force on the administrators (or anyone else’s, for that matter) password. It would make more sense for there to be a completely separate Configuration link used for users that don’t have access to change queues / users / etc.

These menu’s seem to give regular users to data and information that I would definitely deem to be private, and, if nothing else, just don’t think its suitable for users on my system to see it.

Anyone know of a method to do this?

Ah perfect. Just what I was looking for. I try to keep things simple for those just answering the queues :slight_smile:

Thanks a bunch,

One other way is to add some logic to $RT/Elements/Tabs. I added this to our install,

my $toptabs;
if ($session{‘CurrentUser’}->Name eq ‘root’){
$toptabs = {
A => { title => ‘Home’,
path => ‘’,
},
B => { title => ‘Search’,
path => ‘Search/Listing.html’
},

                    D => { title => 'Configuration',
                            path => 'Admin/'
                    }
                   };

} else {
$toptabs = {
A => { title => ‘Home’,
path => ‘’,
},
B => { title => ‘Search’,
path => ‘Search/Listing.html’
}
};
}

This will hide the link from all users unless you are root. I’m not the best perl guru so if there are errors…let me know.
I’d like to add a @admins array to this ie @admins = qw( root user_1 user_2 etc…) so that I can give superuser rights to a user
and add there login to the list any ideas?

One way to do what you want would be to replace your if clause with this
one:

if ($session{‘CurrentUser’}->HasSystemRight({ Right => ‘SuperUser’ })){

That will give everyone who has the “SuperUser” right a Configuration tab,
and no one else.

You could also test against the user’s rights:

if ($session{‘CurrentUser’}->HasSystemRight(‘AdminUsers’))

Then Your Admin users can have non standard names.
