Hi All,

We want to hide a specific context menu entry contributed by a plugin [ pluginID=cm ]. In order to accomplish this, we used org.eclipse.ui.activities extension point in our NEW PLUGIN [ pluginID=newplugin ].

<extension point="org.eclipse.ui.activities">
name="Activate View">

Ideally, this should have hidden the appropriate entry ['Revise Impacted Item'] in the context menu. But, somehow, it is not happening.

The same piece of entry if put for other context menu entries which are contributed by another plugin [pluginID=common]..are hiding the entries. But in this case of cm plugin, it is not working as expected.

One thing which I could see was that there is an existing activities extension defined in cm plugin. This is to hide the perspective contributed by the cm plugin. It goes something like this:

<extension point="org.eclipse.ui.activities">

<activity description="Turn off Change Manager perspective" id="" name="ChangeManager">


<activityPatternBinding activityId="" pattern="com\.teamcenter\.rac\.cm\/.*">


Im not sure if there is a collision of activities extension here. If that is the case how should I be proceeding?

Please share your inputs on what could be wrong here.
