Hide a custom module menu item in admin

Hello everyone,

 

I have a custom module that adds a menu item in the admin navigation which is defined in menu.xml.

 

The module also has a configuration screen in store > configuration, which is defined in system.xml. This configuration screen has a parameter to enable/disable the module.

 

How do I make sure the menu item doesn't show when the module is disabled in the configuration screen?

 

Thanks a lot for your answers.

Actually it does not disable module, it disables module output, that's why you see still admin settings. What you can do, is go under System -> User roles -> your user roll and under Roles Resources you can hide custom menu links. I would suggest to uninstall module if you dont use it Smiley Happy 
Cheers, Hope it helps 

Re: Hide a custom module menu item in admin

Thank you for this input. I am actually looking for a way to do this automatically without user action => if the module is disabled (or output is disabled), then the menu link disappears.

 

If found this link for Magento 1:

https://magento.stackexchange.com/questions/10176/possible-to-hide-admin-menu-if-custom-module-is-di...

 

It says that we can use the following:

<depends>

<config>path/to/parameter</config>

</depends> 

However the post doesn't say precisely where to place this, and I haven't managed to make it work on M2. Is there any way we can hide a menu item automatically with this kind of approach?

 

Re: Hide a custom module menu item in admin

i think you should still rethink your idea. as in Magento 2.2.x there is no option to disable module output 

Re: Hide a custom module menu item in admin

Yes that 's true magento 2.2.x onwards disabled module output is removed and its not there .

 

But if you want to achieve this menu hides functionality from enable/disable configuration settings , you need to disabled your module by programatically.

 

Below is the code :

 

$status = $this->objectManager->create('Magento\Framework\Module\Status');
$status->setIsEnabled(false,[$moduleName]);

Where false and true is your configuration value which is enable/disable

You need to pass your module Name for the same.

 

It will disabled your module based on the settings from back-end , and if module is disabled then its menu items also hides from admin.
