NUX: App is hidden and inaccessible when all pages are inaccessible

NUX: App is hidden and inaccessible when all pages are inaccessible

When all pages under the App becomes inaccessible (for example, by archiving model), the App also becomes inaccessible and disappears from list of Apps.

 

There should be some indication to user the App is hidden otherwise:

- User may feel confused for App which suddenly disappeared

- User is not able to create App with same name

 

Also there should be a method to tell which models are linked to this App otherwise User will need to unarchive the model one by one.

if you enter an app, press "manage this app" and choose "show models" you can see which models are linked to the app.

 

I agree though that the app should not be visible to users if they do not have access to it! +1

In this scenario, there is no app button to click.

 

At current, if there is a single source model for the app and that source model is having a sleep (archived), the app itself doesn't even appear in the interface. It isn't so much an issue for production models as you don't typically archive them, but during development, there's a likelihood you'll temporarily archive a model and that's when this issue occurs.
