Hiding items in Tools menu in AEMaaCS

Avatar

Level 2

Working in AEMaaCS and have a need to hide items from below the Tools menu. Essentially we only want General and Assets to be visible to our users.  What are the paths we need to set to deny jcr:read for these items?

I have found an answer for hiding "Sites" on the on-prem version of AEM 6.5 but am not sure if the paths are the same in the CS version. This is what was listed for Sites:

 

To hide Sites set deny jcr:read on these two paths:

  • /libs/wcm/core/content/sites
  • /libs/cq/core/content/nav/sites

Does anyone know if that is still correct in AEMaaCS? Our dev team has said they can make these permissions changes via a code deploy since the Administrator account cannot set ACEs for the /libs path, but I need to provide them with all of the paths for the other menu items.

Thanks!

@Kate_Sumbler we can do it in the way you suggested. But even if we do it developer needs to find the ootb paths for the functionalities and then only Admin can edit the permissions. 

 

In both the cases developers are involved so i suggest to go for the option which i have suggested

Create a list of groups who needed the access and then add it to the .content.xml file

From your answer it looks like this needs to be done by one of our developers and cannot be done by the User Admin using the ACL controls in Tools > Security > Permissions?
