Get rid of vRealize Automation 7.1 request default fields

UPDATE: Cause the id's of the fields in vRealize Automation differ based on the language and the browser, the way described here will not work properly. So the following procedure shows how the get rid of all the default vRealize Automation fields on the request:

  • Log in to the vRealize Automation appliance using SSH
  • Authenticate as root user
  • Choose the language you want to modify, i.e.:
    • English:
/var/lib/vcac/server/webapps/composition-service/resources/app-en-7.1.0-4270056/resources/composition-all_01.css
    • German:
/var/lib/vcac/server/webapps/composition-service/resources/app-de-7.1.0-4270056/resources/composition-all_01.css
  • And add the following text to the end of the line
.x-autocontainer-form-item{display:none;visibility:hidden}

(To easily add text to the end of a file, open it using vi and use $ to jump to the last char of the line, now use a to enable insert mode and directly jump behind the last char)

Restart the vRealize Automation server service:
service vcac-server restart


Don't ask for support here :-P
