NOTE: ALL THE CUSTOMIZATIONS I’M MENTIONING HERE ARE TESTED AND WORKING.
CONFIGURE THE SEARCH RESULTS SCREEN OF DASH INTERFACE IN FATWIRE:

Case 2: Modify the columns of the search results screen in the Dash Interface.

Explanation: By default, in the search results screen of the Dash UI, the following columns/fields are available: Name, Type, Modified, Locale, Start Date, End Date. In this article, we will see where and how to modify these fields.

Solution: For this customization to take place, we need to do modifications in the UIADMIN.PROPERTIES file.

The file is available in the following location:

C:\FatWire\JSK\7.5Patch5\App_Server\apache-tomcat-6.0.18\webapps\cs\WEB-INF\classes

Open the UIADMIN.PROPERTIES file.

We have a property in that file called “searchtableattrcols”, which specifies the columns that should be displayed in the UI.

The property is set by default as follows:

searchtableattrcols=AssetType,name,updateddate,locale,startdate,enddate

The search results screen of the Dash UI displays the following fields:

We need to change the above value to what ever we want.

Lets remove the Start Date and End Date values from the property, and see what happens. The property looks as follows:

searchtableattrcols=AssetType,name,updateddate,locale

Save the UIADMIN.PROPERTIES file.

Check the Dash UI’s Search results screen for the changes to reflect.

In the search results, we can find that the Start Date, End Date are omitted.

That’s it…! The customization has been done.

Stay tuned for more customizations in my upcoming articles.
