Global Navigation

Available since 1.0.0 Remove 1.7.0

The global navigation component offers a similar navigation approach between Hybris applications. It allows for branding, application groupings, access to a left navigation, switch between applications, contexts and access tooling such as search or a users’ profile.

Use shellbar instead

Elements and positioning in the global navigation are optional but included are:

  • Suite name: identifies the suite or common grouping of the applications
  • Logo: allows for common branding. SAP Hybris applications display the SAP logo.
  • Left navigation menu icon: allows for the left navigation to be expanded or collapsed
  • Application switcher: allows for the identification of the application. Users can switch between applications within the suite/grouping of applications.
  • Context switcher: allows for switching context of application such as an organization or subscription.
  • Search icon: on click, a search field is displayed.
  • User icon: on click, user options are displayed such as Sign Off and Preferences.
