I'm aware that in an individual tool's XML wrapper you can add hidden="true" to the <tool> element to hide the tool from the listing shown in Galaxy's left hand panel (but the tool is still loaded and can be called by old workflows etc).
Can this be done via the tool_conf.xml file as well? This would seem useful from a system configuration point of view where it seems wrong to edit the tool wrappers themselves.
In fact, it might also be nice to add hidden="true" support to
<section> as well as <tool> in tool_conf.xml - although I'm not so sure how useful that would be.
I've filed an enhancement request for this: https://bitbucket.org/galaxy/galaxy-central/issue/481/
Here's the new link to issue 481 ported from bitbucket to trello, https://trello.com/card/481-hiding-a-tool-via-tool-conf-xml/50686d0302dfa79d...
Given things have changed quite a bit with tool_conf.xml now being combined with tools installed via the ToolShed, does this suggestion still make sense? I'd still find it useful sometimes.
