FIM Portal Modification RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have FIM 2010 R1 - I have modified "Security" groups to be called "Application/Folder Access Groups" when I go to the portal as a regular user the word "Security Groups" still shows up, I want to modify this name and also want to get rid of the NEW button.

  • Unfortunately the answer for question about title is "No" or at least not in easy and supported way (I think knowing FIM portal - I would have to look into pages to see where resources are). For New button - read this article but also with comment below:

  • Totally unsupported and very much a hack...

    You can inject JavaScript on AllGroups.aspx in the Content PlaceHolder tag:

    <asp:Content id="content1" ContentPlaceHolderID="PlaceHolderMain" runat="server">
    	<IdentityManagement:AllSecurityGroups id="AllSecurityGroups"  width="100%" height="100%" runat="server"/>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    function changeTitleText() {
      try {
        var elem1 = document.getElementById("ctl00_PlaceHolderMain_AllSecurityGroups_GroupListView_captionControl_captionControlCaption");
        if (elem1 != null) { elem1.innerText = "Application/Folder Access Groups"; }
        var elem2 = document.getElementById("ctl00_PlaceHolderMain_AllSecurityGroups_GroupListView_actionBar_new_button").parentNode.parentNode;
        if (elem2 != null) { elem2.removeChild(elem2.childNodes[0]); }
      catch(er) {}
      setTimeout("changeTitleText()", 1000);
    and... when you perform an update this will most likely get overwritten. So if you use this hack, make a backup copy.
