How to Hide Export to Excel Option On a Pivot Table (Linux)

This article provides an example of a code snippet that could be used to hide a specific option from the Download menu on a widget level.

If you find yourself needing to hide the export to Excel option for some widgets, it might be possible to achieve it with the help of JavaScript. 

Note: The script was developed on L2023.3 Sisense Linux-based version. 

This is an example JavaScript code snippet that could be used for hiding the export to Excel option from the Download menu. In order to apply it, open the pivot in edit mode and click the 3 dots menu:

Paste the following code snippet and Save the changes:




widget.on('beforewidgetindashboardmenu', (se, ev) => {
ev.items.find(i => === 'download').items = ev.items.find(i => === 'download').items.filter(i => !i.command || (i.command && i.command.title !== "dashboard.widget.commands.excel.title"))



After that press "Apply" on the widget. That's it!

Thank you, I was able to hide the Excel/CSV download option using this script. However, if one navigates to the full-screen mode of the widget, then the option to download Excel / CSV is still available. Any pointers on disabling the CSV/Excel download in the full-screen view? I have a requirement to enable the download of CSV / Excel in certain widgets and hence disabling downloads at the dashboard level is not an option I can pursue.

@Jijish Greetings

Please find here script example of how you can disable download option in fullscreen mode as well:

prism.on('beforemenu', (se, ev) => {

if(ev.settings.items.find(i => === 'download')){

ev.settings.items.find(i => === 'download').items = ev.settings.items.find(i => === 'download').items.filter(i => !i.command || (i.command && i.command.title !== "dashboard.widget.commands.csv.title"))


if(ev.settings.items.find(i => i.caption === 'we.toolbar.commands.downloadCSV')){

ev.settings.items = ev.settings.items.filter(i => i.caption !== 'we.toolbar.commands.downloadCSV')


if(ev.settings.items.find(i => i.commandArgs && i.commandArgs.title === 'we.toolbar.commands.downloadCSV')){

ev.settings.items = ev.settings.items.filter(i => !i.commandArgs || (i.commandArgs && i.commandArgs.title !== 'we.toolbar.commands.downloadCSV'))



Please inform on the result.

Best regards,
