    Hi Zahid,

    By default, the rename option is included in the list of context menu commands on the standard configuration, but if you are not able to see it then it is likely that this has been customized. It may be that a different Layout Set is being used or perhaps the ResourceRenderer configuration or command groups have been adjusted so that the Rename command is no longer included.

    Basically, you should first identify which Layout Set is in use when displaying this content. This can be done by navigating to System Administration > System Configuration > KM > CM > User Interface > Debugging Settings (Advanced Options) > WdfProxy. Enter your own user as UI superuser and enable rendering information. Now all KM iViews will be rendered with a debug link which displays layout set, etc, has been used in the rendering.

    Once you know the Layout Set being used, check the Resource Renderer being used by this Layout set. The configuration of the Layout Sets may be reached via System Administration > System Configuration > KM > CM > User Interface > Settings > Layout Set.

    If you click on the Resource Renderer within the Layout Set configuration, you will be taken to the config of the renderer, where you should see 3 command groups, one each for Resources, folders, and links. While this allows different renderers to be used depending on the type of resource, it's not unusual for all three options to use the same command groups.

    Clicking into the configuration of the command groups, you will see a parameter called 'Command List'. This contains a list of commands, and/or perhaps further Command Groups, which are displayed to the end user when using this Layout Set/Resource Renderer. In the case of the 'Rename' command, it would generally be listed within, for example, the 'ResourceActionsGroup'.

    If it is not being displayed in your scenario, then I would suspect that perhaps a command group has been edited and the 'Rename' command removed, or perhaps a custom command group is being used which does not include the rename command. By ensuring that the command is included in one of the command groups being called by the Resource Renderer, the option should once again be available.

    Alternatively, there is one other possibility as to why the command is not being displayed. It is possible to configure specific UI Commands so that they are only displayed to end users with specific roles. If you navigate to the configuration of the 'Rename' UI Command, there is a parameter called 'Roles with visibility'. Entering specific roles for this property will ensure that the command is displayed only to users with these roles assigned. Perhaps this configuration has been applied within your system?

    You can find further information with regards to this setting in the 'Third Step' section of the following blog -

    I hope the above information is of some assistance to you.

    Kind regards,

    Cathal

    Thanks Cathal. Issue has been resolved. There was a configuration for 'Rename' UI command for visibility to a specific role.
