Configure Help Links

This feature is available since Bloomreach Experience Manager version 15.1.0.

Introduction

Goal

Configure the Help links in the Bloomreach Experience Manager to the support and document websites.

Background

The main navigation in Bloomreach Experience Manager contains a Help section with links to Bloomreach Support Portal, Content documentation, and Discovery documentation. Some customers may want to customize these links. This is possible through configuration using the CMS Console.

Configuration

The Help links are configured under /hippo:configuration/hippo:frontend/navapp/navapp-services/navAppSettingsService/helpLinks.

The default configuration is as follows:

/hippo:configuration/hippo:frontend/navapp/navapp-services/navAppSettingsService/helpLinks:
  jcr:primaryType: frontend:pluginconfig
  /support:
    jcr:primaryType: frontend:pluginconfig
    link: https://support.bloomreach.com/
    translationKey: helplinks-support
    visible: true
  /content:
    jcr:primaryType: frontend:pluginconfig
    link: https://documentation.bloomreach.com/library/end-user-manual/end-user-manual-introduction.html
    translationKey: helplinks-content
    visible: true
  /discovery:
    jcr:primaryType: frontend:pluginconfig
    link: https://documentation.bloomreach.com/search-and-merchandising
    translationKey: helplinks-discovery
    visible: true

You can modify the existing links and you can add your own by adding additional frontend:pluginconfig nodes with the same properties as the ones shown above.

The translationKey properties refer to label translations which are configured in resource bundles under /hippo:configuration/hippo:translations/hippo:cms/navapp.

The default English labels are as follows:

/hippo:configuration/hippo:translations/hippo:cms/navapp/en:
  jcr:primaryType: hipposys:resourcebundle
  helplinks-content: Content documentation
  helplinks-discovery: Discovery documentation
  helplinks-support: Support portal

When configuring additional links, make sure to also add corresponding label translations.
