SystemLink 2021 navigation groups

Solved!
Go to solution

In SystemLink 2020 and earlier, we can create a new navigation group by adding a folder which contains a config.json to

C:\Program Files\National Instruments\Shared\Web Server\htdocs\groups\


In SystemLink 2021, the folder above seems to be ignored. Instead, navigation groups are now defined in

C:\Program Files\National Instruments\Shared\Web Server\htdocs\configs\systemlink\config.json


This config file contains "defaultNavigationGroup" which seems to contain all NI SystemLink products (even if those products are not installed).

 

Questions: How do I add a custom group? Must I edit the pre-installed config file directly, or can I add a separate config file and leave the pre-installed one untouched?

Hey JKSH,

 

So, I haven't personally added a new config file myself (and don't have login access to an updated server right this second), but there should be a weight token that decides which config file gets used (higher weight will get prioritized).

Cheers!

Hello JKSH,

 

The documentation on how to add apps and groups was updated in this example:

Thanks,
