The App launcher is a key navigation page in Magnolia you can access using the   icon at the top of every page (to the right of the Find Bar). The launcher displays apps as boxes, also known as the app launcher tiles. Click a tile to launch the associated app. Each tile has an icon and a label. Apps that have something in common belong to the same group.

The app launcher layout organizes apps into groups and defines what the groups look like. You can find the layout configuration in /modules/ui-admincentral/config/appLauncherLayout.

Properties:

groups

required

List of app groups.

<group‑name>

required

App group name. This internal name is not displayed to users. Users see the group label instead.

apps

required

List of apps in the group.

<app‑name>

required

Name of an app that belongs to the group. The name must match the name given in the app configuration, for example pages.

permissions

optional

Defines which users can see the app in the app launcher. This allows you to provision the app to a limited group of users in your organization. See App permissions.

clientGroup

optional, default is false

Moves the group to the bottom of the app launcher and sets the groups color to white. Set the property to true when you create your own app groups. This way they stand apart from the Magnolia native apps and editors can identify them as your company's apps.  

label

optional

Text displayed on the group tile. Use a label that says something common about the apps in the group such as Edit or Manage. The system transforms the case to ALL CAPS.

defaultGroup

optional

Defines the group (one from underneath the groups node) where a new app will be added automatically if this information is not given explicitly,

hiddenApps

optional

List of apps to be hidden in the App launcher.

<app-name>

optional

The value is the name of an app which should not be shown in the App launcher. (The name of the property is arbitrary.)
