This is a regression we have accidentally introduced in NAM 2018. The idea was to protect against unauthorized changes in the property files, which often led to issues that had to be resolved though support. Since customizing menu is possible through customMenu.xml file (since 12.4) we decided to protect related property files, while enabling better report management in NAM 2019.
I am happy to report that both NAM 2018 SP 3 and NAM 2019 (Beta Refresh) contain an improvement which enables to set custom global home page through the customMenu.xml file.
Additionally, NAM 2019 Beta Refresh will come with new Report explorer dashboard, which apart from helping to review and monitor reports in NAM Server, will also enable to manage reports, e.g., to set favorites or home pages for selected user, multiple users or user groups.
