I want to open a change from the menu (no category qbe).
I have 3 categories, Default, Hardware and Software. In menu i have an entry called "Default Change"
So once the user clicks Default Change from the menu navigator, a change form needs to be open and the category as default.
I'm not sure how to pass the category value to the change.
Any help on this...

But i want it like, when the person clicks the "default change" in the menu, it should open CM.change.logging form, category as "Default"

The simplest way I think you can do this is buy useing a new field for categories and for the one existing just create a DEfAULT.
But this also makes other functionalities obsolete.. but maybe you don't need them..
I sure didn't.

Or i need to open the CM.change.logging form, (For category i can use some other option....)
I tried using the following value.
application parameter_name parameter_value
database name CM.change.logging
But it opens the change search form... i want CM.change.logging form... in one click from the menu (without reducing the change category to 1).....

You want them to exist.
You want so that when you click a menu the one of those categories be taken as the one and skip the others.
Would it be enough that certain users had this capability?
Or does it have to be everyone?
There is a way but it would be referenced to the user and not the menu click.

Why cannot you create a change profile in which Default category would be the category you require and assign the profile to that particular user.
1. Create a new change profile
2. Goto Category tab
3. In Default change category set the category you want the user to open
4. Assign the profile to the operator in Change profiles.
5. Create a new user role
6. In the user role->Change profiles field select the change profile you had created
7. Assign the user role to the operator
8. Logout and login and try to open a change.

i hope it's clear

Still I could not understand you clearly....You want to click on Open a new change link and you want it to open a
new change record with default change category like "Hardware" without showing category QBE. Is that you want?
Regarding how you can assosciate menu item "Open a new change" to particular operator, you can check the menu
record "ChM MAIN MENU" by running db->menu->Search for the menu record. In the menu record you will find
"Open New change" as particular menu item...
Now how does this menu item is assosciated with a operator? It is assosciated with operator record->Startup tab.
If you look at falcon operator record, you will see in Startup tab 1st parameter being called for RAD "menu.manager"
is name and the value is "MAIN MENU".
Now if you search for "MAIN MENU" in menu records, you will find "ChM MAIN MENU" menu record been called...
Now if you want to create new menu item for your operator, check the menu record that is called in your operator
record and in that menu record add the menu item "Open new change" from "ChM MAIN MENU" menu record(It
should be identical)
Hope that helps...

thanks a lot for your quick replay
yes what i wnt is toi create a link in menu to open a default change without ask operator to chose category
i already add in the menu the link , but the problem is how to bypass the category qbe list, or how to pass a parameter in the menu to skip category qbe list
i add the link in the home menu and i want that this link be availible for all operator
the problem that i want also to keep the "open new change " default link to use it when the category of change is not the default one
maybe it's more clear now

NOTE: This is a duplicate thread (this answer is posted in both threads).
To create a navigator/menu item which allows automatic selection of change category:
First, define a new Process (Tailoring > Document Engine > Processes)
Process Name: openConfigChange (or whatever you want to call it)
Enter the Initial Expression: $setCategory="CATEGORY_NAME"
On the RAD panel, in the first application enter: cmc.open.from.menu
Second, update the cm.open Process (which is called by cmc.open.from.menu):
In the "Expressions evaluated before RAD call" for the cm.open RAD application, enter:
if ($setCategory="CATEGORY_NAME" then category in $L.file="CATEGORY_NAME"; $setCategory=NULL
Third, add the Menu item to the Menu record which will call the new Process:
Parameter Name: name
Parameter Value: openConfigChange (or whatever you called it)
Enter a description, option # and condition.
