Show a menu of roles in the Top Level Navigation

Hello,

Imagine a scenario where a user has many roles assigned to him (say 40 roles). In that case the user will have 40 tabs in the first level of the top level navigation and by default a horizontal scroller appears on the right part of the screen clicking on which the roles will scroll horizontally. If the user has to go to the 40th role he has to click quite a lot.

Is it possible to have a menu option clciking on which we get the all the list of roles in the top level navigation in a vertical list and we can directly jump to any role clicking on the entry in the list ?

Something like what we get in a tab strip in Web Dynpro.

Thanks in advance for your valuable inputs.

    Hi,

    of course you can do this, just write your own TLN iView or let the DLN show the 40 entry points. 40 roles don't need to mean 40 entry points, you can also merge some entry points to limit the number, a maximum of 10 entry points make it easier for the users to navigate.

    Hi,

    Yes it is possible to have menus as you wish .

    Look at the following links

    You need to work on navigation tag libraries to extend number of levels .

    The above inks helps you only for single level of navigation.
