is there a way to hide Edit Bill of Materials from users

We are looking for a way to hide the use of "Edit Bill Of Materials" from the users. This tool OOB does not have business rule capability so erroneous data is created and fails in sendingto our ERP system. This causes many hours of effort to identify and resolve. We have a custom application that does real time business checking on data, so we need to enforce the use of this tool. I have looked at preferences and Profiles with no luck.


Any help would be appreciated.

You would have to remove it from the configuration files that build the
menu.

config\actions\PartManagement-actionmodels.xml

I'm not sure of a 'access control' type way, but a quick way to do it would be to just comment out the action from the PartManagement-actionModel. You can always uncomment it back if you decide to use it later on.

In case if you want to provide the edit BOM option for a specific set of
people, you can deploy a validator and have the logic in the validator for
exposing the link only for the specific user group.
