Alfresco, how to hide categories component from Share app

Every Surf component in a Share page can be extended in order to perform customisations on it.

To identify the target component, enable SurfBug …

… and navigate to the page to identify the component by clicking on it.

Having this component details in mind, you can write a simple surf customisation at /opt/alfresco/tomcat/shared/classes/alfresco/web-extension/site-data/extensions/remove-categories-extension.xml

            <id>Remove categories from share</id>
                        <sub-component id="default">
                                <evaluation id="guaranteedToHide">

After restarting Alfresco, categories tab will disappear from Repository view page for every user. If you want to apply this configuration also for document library, just replace




at /opt/alfresco/tomcat/shared/classes/alfresco/web-extension/site-data/extensions/remove-categories-extension.xml or create a new component entry in this XML file to hide categories on both pages.

Remember to include all your customisations under /opt/alfresco/tomcat/shared directory in order to avoid maintenance and upgrading conflicts.
