User can use Menu Configuration to add their applications to the ONEWEB Menu.


Importance/Uses: Once a user develops any application using an App Designer, it can be easily added to the Menu so that other users can access the app. Once an application is successfully tested, an application user could use Access Management tool called IAM on ONEWEB platform to make it available only for eligible end users and easily restricts access to ineligible users or roles.


Steps to add your application on ONEWEB Menu: Below Snippet depicts an icon to add a menu item on ONEWEB Menu.



Example: To illustrate and guide in creating a Menu item, let's design a menu header labeled as "SAMPLE_APP" and under this header we allow end user to access the application named "Doc Order Request". The desired final output in this case should look like below:



To design a ONEWEB MENU as above, follow the steps given below:

    • Click on icon to open Menu Properties Window.
    • Enter Description, Eg: Description is the title of the menu For e.g. SAMPLE_APP (Note:This is an example description, User can use descriptions text that suits their business needs)
    • Sequence - to set the order of Menu. Sequence '0' will appear before '1' and so on. For our purpose the sequence is set as "1".
    • Mapping - Mapping is used to open desired entity in either SEARCH or INSERT mode. But for a label menu item, you can leave it as blank as it is not mapped to any entity.
    • Reference - To set the hierarchy of the menu. If you want to make your menu come under a parent menu, you can put reference as the parent menu. But if you want your menu as the first level, you can leave it blank.
    • Type - There are 2 available types to choose from - LABEL and PAGE. LABEL is used to create a Menu label to group child menu items and PAGE is used to create a menu item inside that Label. E.g: To design an example as above we create "SAMPLE_APP" menu here is a label and under this label, we would place our application "Doc Order Request" as PAGE to design required MENU design.  
    • Action Target - Choose as 'mainframe'
    • Click OK to save.



Once you are finished with above steps the Menu configuration screen should have an item with the name SAMPLE_APP. Follow instructions below to create an Menu item inside this Menu Label.



    • Click on icon to open Menu Properties Window.
    • Enter Description, Eg: Description as "DOC Oder Request" (Note:This is an example description in, User can use descriptions text that suits their business application needs)
    • Enter Sequence to set order of Menu. Sequence '0' will appear before '1' and so on. E.g: Sequence is set as "1".
    • Mapping - Mapping is used to open desired entity in either SEARCH or INSERT mode. User can select the entity to be attached to the menu from the first drop down. User can then decide the specific mode based on their requirement. For our application purpose the INSERT mode is selected. (Note: For more information on different modes, please follow the section on Entity Modes)
    • Click "Generate" button to generate auto script in Action URL.
    • Reference - System will default the Parent Menu ID.
    • Type - Choose PAGE in this case as we need to open the application from this menu.
    • Action Target - Choose as 'mainframe'.
    • Click OK to save.
