Step 2 - Login

Log in with a user that has the role GXflow Backend Administrator —see Management Console for details on how to manage users and roles— for example the WFADMINISTRATOR user.

Note: when using GeneXus Access Manager, the GAM Backoffice must be used in order to manage users, roles and permissions.

Step 3 - Open the Menus component

Open the Menus component by selecting it —it is located under the Backend node.

Press the "NEW" button, and set the properties as follows:

Note: when using GeneXus Access Manager a permission will be created once the menu is created. The permission will be created with the name "{MENU_ID}"; in this case: "MyMenu".

Step 5 - Add components to the Menu

Next, in order to use the newly created GXflow Menu you must add some components to it. For simplicity purposes, add to it some existing GXflow Components.

To do so select the new menu and press the "COMPONENTS" button. A dialog will be displayed for you to select the component to be added or removed from the menu:

Note: you can rearrange the components by selecting them and using the arrow buttons buttons.

Step 6 - Done!

Lastly, test your menu. To do so, add permissions for the "MyMenu" menu to a role, and log in with a user that has permissions to use the newly created menu— for example use WFADMINISTRATOR. Then open it.
