we remove console access on another user in the drop down using dashboard nova_policy.json file. But console tab also available on when clicking the instance name it goes to overview, log, console, action tab available page. when clicking the console tab it shows this message

(If the console is not responding to keyboard input: click the grey status bar below. Click here to show the only console To exit the full-screen mode, click the browser's back button.)

click the Url it goes to http://serverip:6080/vnc_auto.html page to access control of the instance of other user created.

So how to hide this console tab on the dashboard.

You can remove the console tab on horizon by making the below change in


class InstanceDetailTabs(tabs.TabGroup):
    slug = "instance_details"
    tabs = (OverviewTab, LogTab, ConsoleTab, AuditTab)
    sticky = True

Replace the line tabs = (OverviewTab, LogTab, ConsoleTab, AuditTab) with

tabs = (OverviewTab, LogTab, AuditTab)

and restart apache
