Displaying dashboards in dropdown menu

OBI typically displays the names of the individual dashboards across the top of the screen. Unless we create more than 15 dashboards, it would not show it in a drop-down menu. That is the default dashboards required before they turn out to a menu.

Here we can group the dashboards that were built based out of same subject areas and show a drop down menu as follows:

In order to do that, we need to create dashboards by using the same shared folder and change the instanceconfig.xml file parameter as follows.

<DashboardMaxBeforeMenu>2</DashboardMaxBeforeMenu>

So if you have more than 2 dashboards then all the dashboards which comes from the same shared folder will be displayed as menu. And this entry takes effect for all the shared folders.
