How to disable navigation user interface?


The navigation user interface is being a real problem, any user can

access KM by just typing a simple url:


how to disable that? Also, removing the Read permission on KM

folders is not an option, since we use KM Navigation iViews to render

our public content and there are also some folders that ACL isn't even

the permission handler (eg.: /ume)

I have read this topic:

but that was on 2005 so maybe ep5~6.0, and I could not find this navigation

component under my security zones (SAP NetWeaver 7.0 (2004s) SPS 14)


any ideas?

thanks in advance,

    You can permanently disable the URL http://<server>:<port>/irj/go/km/navigation/

    Solution is

    Go to System Admin -> System Configuration -> Knowledge Management -> Content Management -> Global Service -> URL Generated Services, In URL Generated Services Just Change the Explorer Servlet and Navigation Servlet as /irj/go/km/details.

    You can disable the URL http://<server>:<port>/irj/go/km/navigation/

      Hi Baskar, thanks for the reply, however that solution will just

      cover the problem, I think I'm dealing with permissions but I couldn't

      find yet where to configure.

      Dealing with pcd objects permissions I handled access to



      when accessing /irj/go/km/navigation portal executes a copy of these original sap iViews

      into the every user role (eu_role) which if I restrict access to the entire role then I'd have

      another problem since the KM Document iView is there too, thus /irj/go/km/docs being

      restricted and going away and along with it all images and links to documents on portal.

      Fine, did some workaround - changed authentication scheme of the iView into the role,

      killing the delta link connection, so I can run a custom application that redirects to portal home.

      Things were supposed to be "solved", but then exploring these url and servlets, found

      some default settings and so pops up a new bastard child...


      do you got any idea how to block it?

      kind regards,
