WebAdmin: Hide Unlicensed Features

It would be nice, to be able to hide unneeded or unlicensed features, so the Webinterface is concise and only shows what I can work with.

        re the commercial point of view:
        at least the unused features could be moved to the bottom of the menu.

        In regards to the view option to hide areas, this already does appear in the product for webadmin customization.

        To set a user to only see a particular area such as Web security and Network security goto Management>>Webadmin Settings>>Access Control.
        Create an access control view for the user account to only see the selected security areas.

        That's a good idea. A compromise for the proposed marketing and usabilty requests could be, to display all features to the "admin" user but only display licensed/ permitted features to other users who have access to WebAdmin. Additionaly, everything could still be displayed on the dashboard.

        I don't understand the issue.
        Just don't click on the Feature and you don't see configuration items of your "unneeded" things.
        I know other systems and i must say, that the navigation of astaro far from overloaded gui.

        And compare with an installation of variously linux distribution like to compare apples and oranges.

        @flaserra.

        I can't agree... or you did missunderstand: If I buy consulting and technical installation service and got all information about a mind blowing featureset and finaly buy what I need, than I dont need to see a overloaded gui with features i (currently) don't need ...

        That would be the same as if a linux distribution installes all software, all services like different webservers or database systems ... and you only need a print server ...

        from a commercial point of view, it's good to show unlicensed features, so customers can see what their product can offer...
