Is it possible to hide the “Ideas” menu in Classic and display in new UX?

We need to hide “Ideas” menu in Classic and display in new UX so updated following permission:
* Revoked = Ideas - Navigate
* Granted = Idea Management - Navigate

We still see the “Ideas” menu under “Demand Management” in Classic.
- Is there any other permission to be removed?
- After reviewing this, We found that “ Idea - View - All ” grants access to the idea link.
- Ideally, as mentioned, unless “Idea - Navigate” is granted, menu option should not be displayed even though “ Idea - View - All ” is granted.
- This is the way it works for new UX then why not for Classic?

Product Management is aware that we need to do some things with Access rights. This is due to the existing design for access rights into Classic and just making this one change for Ideas, might take some time to do because it may seem simple from a code perspective, but it may have impact on existing QA automation tests.

The suggestion is to log an idea.

Title: Decouple Classic Menu Navigation from Ideas & Project Global View & Edit access

Description: In Classic PPM, the Idea Global access 'Ideas - View - All' or 'Ideas - Edit - All' and the Project Global access 'Projects - View - All' or 'Projects - Edit - All' include the permissions to see the Menu Link in Classic.
We are migrating over to the Modern UX and want to only have the users navigate to the Ideas or Projects list there but not in Classic PPM.

Additional Information

From the Menu Manager side deleting Ideas from the Menu Manager so it would not exist under Demand Management however if you try to delete it you get 'Error The selected menu items can not be deleted because they are linked to system pages.' As workaround you can rename or move Ideas link but you can not delete.
