Disable the "more applications" option in the applications block


I would like the users to have a fixed set of applications, and the option to install “More applications” is still visible to them and they can start creating new applications.

Can this option be removed? I haven’t seen the option in the menu to customize the application list.




You can edit the PanelsCode.ApplicationsPanelConfiguration page with the object editor (you need to configure your user profile to be an advanced user) and add excludes for:

  • platform.panels.createApplication
  • platform.panels.addApplications

As you’ll see, each exclude is specified using an ApplicationsPanelBlackListClass object.

The only issue is that this custom config gets lost if you configure the application panel afterwards using the visual mode (by drag & drop).
