    Hello Sridhar,

    It’s a Nice blog. But for hiding the Directory and Index you need to make changes to Component FPM_LAUNCHPAD_UIBB.

    Steps to follow:

    1. Go to Component FPM_LAUNCHPAD_UIBB

    2. Create a Component Configuration

    3. Start the Component Configurator

    4. In the General Settings, for Directory and Index change from Visible to Not Visible from the dropdown.

    The changes are not reflecting in Portal when following the blog.
