Hidden Content references for Fluid Approval Components

EOAW2200 permission list give access to Approval Tile. We added this permission list to users to get access to approval Tile . The same Fluid Approval component is used in the below content references : But these content references are hidden. So when the user with EOAW2200 logs in , he sees respective folders alone as these content references are hidden . We don't want the users to see these folders as they cannot see anything under these folders for example:

Root > eProcurement > Fluid Requisition Approval (EP_PV_FLUID_APPROVAL)
Root > Cash Management > Settlements > Approve Settlements Fluid(EP_STL_APPROVAL_FLUID_GBL)
Root > General Ledger > Journals > Journal Entry > Journal Fluid Approval (EP_JRNL_FLUID_APPR_GBL)
Root > Accounts Receivable > Payments > Apply Payments > Payment Write-off Fluid Appr(EP_PAYMENT_WRITEOFF_FL_GBL)
Root > Enterprise Components > Approvals > Approvals > Mobile Approval Options (FIN_MBL_TYPE_SETUP)
Root > Travel and Expenses > Approve Transactions > Time Report Fluid Approval (EP_EX_TIME_APPR_FLUID)
Root > Travel and Expenses > Approve Transactions > Time Adjustment Fluid Approval (EP_EX_TIMEADJ_APPR_FLUID)
Root > Commitment Control > Budget Journals > Budget Journal Fluid Approval(EPKK_CBJ_FLUID_APPR_GBL)
Root > Deal Management > Capture Deals > Preview/Approve Deals Fluid (EP_PREVIEW_DEALS_FLUID_GBL)
 Root > Sourcing > Sourcing Events Fluid (EP_AUC_SOURICNG_EVENTS_FL_GBL)
Root > Accounts Payable > Vouchers > Approve > Fluid Voucher Approval (EPAP_FL_VCHR_APPR_GBL)
Root > Accounts Payable > Payments > Payment Request > Fluid Payment Request Approval (EPAP_FL_PR_APPR_GBL)
Root > Purchasing > Purchase Orders > Purchase Order Fluid Approval(EP_PO_MAN_FLUID_APPR)

 
The EOAW2200 Permission List should not grant access to all the other pages. Fluid Approval Component is common for approvals of different modules. Since the component EOAWMA_MAIN_FL is common for all these approvals registered in the portal registry under different folders, the users see all the folders related to approvals. For example, if the user is given access for Voucher Approvals in Payables(PL: EOAW2200), they see the folder navigation of other modules using Fluid Approvals like General Ledger, Commitment Control, Deal Management, Cash Management, etc..


The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Give a user the EOAW2200 Permission List through a role that the user has
2. Log in as the user
3. See that the user has access to all the other menu items.
