Promotion Notice Hide Wizard Pages

Promotion Notice Hide Wizard Pages

When a user initiates a promotion notice from a single object there are three pages to the Promotion Wizard.  We want the ability to turn off/filter out the first and third Promotion Notice Wizard Pages via preference management or some other administratively friendly method.

More details...

Page 1:

The first page captures the Promotion Notice name (always unique OOTB) and target storage location.  We typically don't worry about the Promotion Notice name and forcibly set the target location via OIRs to a pre-determined default folder so users never touch this page and always have to select 'Next' to get to the important page.  We want the ability to turn off/filter out this promotion wizard page.  According to PTC it is not possible to turn off this page today.

Page 2:

The second page collects objects and sets promotion targets.  We want the ability to make this the first (possibly only) page of the promotion request Wizard.

Page 3:

The last page selects workflows and promotion participants.  In many cases the business process pre-determines a single promotion workflow and participants which we configure through preferences.  This configuration makes this page irrelevant so we turn off/filter out this page.  This page can be removed today by...

Ensure there are no decision criteria for this page before turning it off.

Edit %WT_HOME%\codebase\config\actions\PromotionRequest-actions.xml

Change (~line 57) from:  <action name="workflowParticipantsStep" required="false" preloadWizardPage="false">

to:  <action name="workflowParticipantsStep" required="false" preloadWizardPage="false" hidden="true">
