You can prevent displaying the Access Request pages in Identity Governance by disabling the Access Request service. When you disable the service:
All Access Request options are removed from navigation
Users with no rights in Identity Governance will not be redirected to Access Request
All REST API calls for access request will return errors
Users directly accessing the Access Request interface will see the following error message after login: Access request services are disabled. Contact your system administrator.
NOTE:This setting does not affect request and approval polices. Users still will be able to administer and view policies.
To disable the Access Request service:
Start the Identity Governance Configuration Utility in console mode.
Linux: Default location of /opt/netiq/idm/apps/idgov/bin, then enter ./configutil -console -password database_password
Windows: Default location of c:\netiq\idm\apps\idgov\bin, then enter configutil -console -password database_password
Disable the Access Request service:
config> add-property GLOBAL com.netiq.iac.access.request.enabled false
Exit the console and restart tomcat.
