If you have write access to the CAS files, you can edit an XML file to create a custom report menu.
There are three basic steps required:
On the CAS, in the
config\menu folder, open
customMenu.xml-example in a text editor and review how the menu is defined by this XML structure.
<Menu xmlns='http://www.compuware.com/CAS/customMenu'> <MenuSection label="My Reports"> <MenuEntry reportName="Application Health Status"/> <MenuGroup label="EUE Overview" label_zh-cn="EUE 概述"> <MenuEntry reportName="Applications" /> <MenuEntry reportName="Tiers" /> <MenuEntry reportName="Sites" /> </MenuGroup> <MenuEntry reportName="Synthetic Overview"/> <MenuGroup label="Network Analysis"> <MenuEntry reportName="Network Overview - Sites"/> <MenuEntry reportName="Network overview" label="Network overview"/> <MenuEntry reportName="Network Link Overview" /> <MenuEntry reportName="VoIP Overview" /> </MenuGroup> </MenuSection> </Menu>
To customize the menu structure, you need to edit that file and save it as
customMenu.xml in the same folder.
In the example, you can see the following:
Labeland can have multiple instances of
Label, an optional internationalization label (using
label_jafor Chinese, Korean, or Japanese), and one or more instances of
reportNamethat exactly matches one report name. You can have many instances of
For an idea of what they look like in an actual CAS menu, here is the standard CAS menu structure with highlighting around these menu components:
After you edit and save the custom menu in the XML file as described above, you must decide whether to also show the standard Reports menu or hide it.
After the menu is edited and saved in the right folder, and after you have set MENU_REPORTS_HIDDEN to true or false, you must tell the CAS to read this information from the configuration files and apply it.
