How to hide the Configuration Tab in RT3

RT 3.8.x and higher

It is as simple as not giving the user the SeeConfigTab privilege. Users who are not SuperUsers and without this privilege will not see the Configuration tab.

RT3.6.x and lower

First copy "/path/to/rt3/share/html/Elements/Tabs" to "/path/to/rt3/local/html/Elements/Tabs" then open it in your editor and remove the following code block:

my $basetabs = { A => { title => loc('Homepage'), path => '', }, B => { title => loc('Tickets'), path => 'Search/Build.html' }, E => { title => loc('Configuration'), path => 'Admin/' }, K => { title => loc('Preferences'), path => 'User/Prefs.html' }, P => { title => loc('Approval'), path => 'Approvals/' }, };

...and in its place add:

my $basetabs = { A => { title => loc('Homepage'), path => '', }, B => { title => loc('Tickets'), path => 'Search/Build.html' }, K => { title => loc('Preferences'), path => 'User/Prefs.html' }, P => { title => loc('Approval'), path => 'Approvals/' }, }; if ( $session{'CurrentUser'}->HasRight(Right => 'SuperUser', Object => $RT::System) ) { <code><pre> $basetabs-&gt;{'E'} = { title =&gt; loc('Configuration'), path =&gt; 'Admin/' }; </pre></code> }

Once this is working you can just assign your "admin" users the global right of "SuperUser" and they will see the config link. Regular users will not.
