Configuring UI actions and view rules for the tablet interface

Administrators can configure access to UI actions based on whether the tablet interface is used.

About this task

You could, for example, reduce the number of UI actions that appear on the tablet interface, limiting the UI to the most basic functions that tablet users need.

To determine if a user is accessing an instance from a tablet, create a script using the GlideMobileExtensions.runningTablet() method. To create a view rule that applies to tablet users only:


  1. Navigate to System UI > View Rules.
  2. Click New.
  3. In the Device type field, select Tablet.
  4. Fill in the other fields to define the view rule.
