Issue/Introduction

I want to move some existing Spectrum One Click Menus around. For example: I want to move MIBTools launch from Utilities-->MIBTools to either one of the existing troubleshooting tools (ping/poll) or it's own custom new menu from the top bar. For example: "Common Tools-->MIBTools"

Can this be done?

Environment

Any version of Spectrum OneClick on any supported operating system

Resolution

Using the example above, this can be done by doing the following on the OneClick system:

1. Log into the OneClick system as the user that owns the Spectrum installation

2. Make a backup of the $SPECROOT/tomcat/webapps/spectrum/WEB-INF/mib/config/mib-app-config.xml file

3. Edit the $SPECROOT/tomcat/webapps/spectrum/WEB-INF/mib/config/mib-app-config.xml file

4. Change the top <menu> tab to look like the following:

<menu name="Common Tools">

5. Remove one of the </menu> tags at the bottom of the file

6. Save the file

7. Log out of OneClick and then log back in



NOTE: This will not work by creating a $SPECROOT/custom/mib/config directory and modifying the mib-app-config.xml file in this directory. The out of the box $SPECROOT/tomcat/webapps/spectrum/WEB-INF/mib/config/mib-app-config.xml file has to be modified. Please keep in mind that modifications to out of the box configuration files may not be preserved through a patch install or upgrade.

Additional Information

Please reference the "Customizing the OneClick Console Menu" section of the documentation for more information.
