Disabling and securing gadgets in Episerver CMS 11 - Missing definition names


Hi all!

I'm looking to add security for the dashboard gadgets.  I found this very useful guide on how to achieve this:

            <add definitionName="EPiServer.Shell.UI.Controllers.VisitorGroupsStatisticsController" allowedRoles="None" />

The only problem is I'm not able to find the definitionName for the following Gadgets:

  • RSS Feed
  • Notes
  • External Links

Anyone know how I can find the full controller class names for these?

And, if you're interested in hiding additional elements from some editors, this blog post might be very helpful: "Remove Episerver UI components for certain editors"
