Customizing EPM Workspace 11.1.2.x Part III

You can find Customizing EPM Workspace  Part I , Part II
When I posted Part II, I got a question from +POLA TVU  asking – “How to increase the number of items showing up in Quick Links of Workspace Home Page?”

I forgot about that and recently the same question was posted by a user in OTN.

Perform the actions described in this post with caution.
A Word of Caution:

The method described here involves changing workspace default pages. Check your licensing agreements to see whether this can be customized. 

Step 1

Login to Shared Services and perform an LCM.

Select HomePage and export it.

Navigate to Application Groups -> Reporting and Analysis -> Reporting and Analysis

Expand Repository Objects and Shared Workspace Pages, select HomePage.

Step 2

Open HomePage_wsp (HomePage).HomePage_wsp in a text editor.

RnA-Reporting and AnalysisresourceRepository ObjectsShared Workspace PagesHomePage_wsp (HomePage).HomePage_wsp

You’ll find something similar to the code below.

xsi:type="PortletSpec" name="QuickLinks"  

Update to a desired number. (I tested this on for 6 items)

Step 3

Restart services

Once you update the showitems it affects both Favorites and Applications.
