Question:

In catalog UI ,  go to Home-> Requests ,  in the request page there ,  can we do customization to change the screen words  in the request page's dashboard ? 

 

 

Environment:
catalog 12.8 , 12.9 , 14.1
Answer:

Customizing catalogbrowse.xml can achieve it . 

 

Taking "Open"  in the dashboard of the request page as example  

1)  locate catalogbrowse.xml under USM_HOME\view\webapps\usm\locale\icusen\request\ 

2)  copy this catalogbrowse.xml and copy it into USM_HOME\filestore\custom\locale\icusen\request\

3) then modify the catalogbrowse.xml  under USM_HOME\filestore\custom\locale\icusen\request\

change :
   <open_requests>Open</open_requests>
 
to :

    <open_requests>Open_Jing</open_requests>

4) stop catalog service

5)  go to USM_HOME\view\translets\ folder and delete all the translet files under this folder

6)  restart catalog service  

7)  then access catalog UI,  you will see the OOTB text "Open"  is changed to "Open_Jing"  . see the following screenshot :

Note :  in order to make long-term maintenance  easily ,  please follow the catalog customization framework to do this customization .  In other word ,  please do NOT modify catalogbrowse.xml  directly at its OOTB default folder .  Instead ,  please copy OOTB's  catalogbrowse.xml  into filestore folder ( i.e.   under USM_HOME\filestore\custom\locale\icusen\request\ mentioned in the steps above )  and then customize catalogbrowse.xml  there .
