Which default create drop-down menu are you referring to? Can you be more specific

In the Assets section, when creating an asset you can see all of these options in the drop down. We would like to remove them so that only 'Folder' and 'File' remain.

Its not recommended to remove those options at these OOTB functionality will help you in achieving other goals as name suggest in the drop down list but if you still wants to overwrite it you can do it by overriding /libs/dam/gui/content/assets/jcr:content/actions/secondary/create/items node inside you app folder

Hello @mbrennan 

 

You can use granite:rendercondition to hide the options for a specific group. Please don't hide for all.

Example: 

/libs/dam/gui/content/assets/jcr:content/actions/secondary/create/items/folderupload/granite:rendercondition

 

@DPrakashRaj  has already shared the location of Create dropdown

Hello @aanchal-sikka thank you so much, this is a great direction.

 

I have defined a group which contains all the users I do not want to be able to see

/libs/dam/gui/content/assets/jcr:content/actions/secondary/create/items/createfragment/granite:rendercondition

 

However this is all I see

I previously had an ACL access policy in that window which was all which I deleted, and now I can't get it back.

Hello @mbrennan 

 

In the article shared below, there is an example of a rendercondition via group membership

We need not tamper ACLs.

This is working for me!

 

I was able to change most of the menu options.

 

There are a few outliers-

import ugc - only has data node

create live copy - only has data node

metadata - has no child nodes

"/libs/dam/gui/content/assets/jcr:content/actions/secondary/create/items/"

Added granite:rendercondition child node doesn't work for these ?

 

import ugc - only has data node

create live copy - only has data node

metadata - has no child nodes

I am able to create nodes granite:rendercondition

"/libs/dam/gui/content/assets/jcr:content/actions/secondary/create/items/ugc/granite:rendercondition"

"/libs/dam/gui/content/assets/jcr:content/actions/secondary/create/items/createlivecopy/granite:rendercondition"

"/libs/dam/gui/content/assets/jcr:content/actions/secondary/create/items/metadata/granite:rendercondition"

 

 

Was able to overlay nodes to app

"/libs/dam/gui/content/assets/jcr:content/actions/secondary/create/items/ugc/"

"/libs/dam/gui/content/assets/jcr:content/actions/secondary/create/items/createlivecopy"

"/libs/dam/gui/content/assets/jcr:content/actions/secondary/create/items/metadata"

 

And add in granite:rendercondition properties per

step 2 of "Add a render condition"

However they are still visible in the drop down menu

Additionally I went back through and overlayed the created grantie:rendercondition nodes to app.

 

However the options are still visible in the drop down
