Disable default folder navigation tree


In a project I am working on, a huge number of folders are created directly at top level. This makes the utility of the standard folder navigation tree practically zero. Therefore I want to disable this navigation tree and only use a custom search page and a custom virtual navigation tree.

I already found how to disable the default virtual navigation trees “bySubjectsNavigation” and “byCoverageNavigation”, by setting them to false in the DirectoryTreeService extension point.

However, I cannot find how to disable the folder tree navigation. Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance, Pieter

In Nuxeo 5.6 this cannot be disabled by configuration. In Nuxeo 5.7 (NXP-11368) this has been made configurable.

To disable it in Nuxeo 5.6 you would have to override the MultiNavTreeManager bean to change getAvailableNavigationTrees() to return only those you want.

Thanks for your answer Florent. In that case it makes more sense to wait for 5.7, which will hopefully come out soon :-)

A Nuxeo 5.7.1 Fast Track release will come out this month. See Release Cycle Changes = More Agility for Nuxeo Customers for more on the release cycle.
