Admin Console on v7.1 - make days left on license alert viewable by role based selection

Xavier Ona shared this idea 2 years ago

Hello, the current version of Yellowfin that we are using (7.1 20151209) displays the number of days left on your license, is there a way t hide this from other admin type of roles?

Hi Xavier,


This is actually a very good idea.

We think there should be 2 things that affect the 'licence expires in x days' panel.

You have the role function and in the default org, you should see this licence expiry panel.


So if you don't have the role function, or logged into a client org, that panel should never display.


A dev task has been raised #225008, but not allocated, so I cannot actually provide an ETA.

However, this is something that we are hoping to do in the fairly near future.


Thanks for your suggestion!


Regards,

David

Xavier, thanks for the question.


Currently you cannot hide the license display for days left from other admins as this is not a role selectable option. If you have access to the Admin Console you will see the days left notification. Could you add a bit more clarity on the use case you are trying to solve.

Thanks Lee, we have several Client Orgs, and some users have the capability to admin users, content and reports within the Client Org, others can create reports and finally we have the readers. The admin types for the Client Orgs that have access to the Admin Console are the ones looking at this number (Days Left on Your License) and asking us questions about it.


Ideally we would like this information not visible to them since they do not have anything to do with it and ultimately causes some concern as they see the number going lower and lower.


When we were on v6.3 this number was not available for them, v7.1 added it.


Thank you,

Xavier

Xavier, I think this is a valid request. I have changed the question to an idea so we can have our product team review at the end of month. More soon. Lee
