Role Based Edits On Datapages



I have different users accessing datapages that have different roles.  Some users can search and view details and others can perform those functions plus insert, update and delete.  


Can this be performed within a single datapage?  If not is there a technique to keep datapages insync when making changes.

Hello srauhe,


Go through the following steps:

1) Create a users tables and that table will have two yes no fields User & Manager along all the other fields.
2) Create two DataPages one for Admin and another for user
3) You will see a script for redirecting people depending on their authentication. 
4) In the User report you will filter the records by authentication so the user will be able to see what he is supposed to see. 
5) The other datapage for the manager will not have any filter.
Hope it helps  :)

All users will be able to see all records.  A subset of users will be able to perform insert, update and deletes.


It sounds like to i will have to create 2 similar datapages

1) View Access

2) View Insert, Update and Delete Access


I was hoping to use the same datapage and Hide/Disable the Insert edit and delete access for non admin users.

You could add an HTML block to tabular report to replace the standard details link and remove details page. Then create a separate details page for each access type and set field types accordingly. This way user can use the same search form and tabular report, just the details page will be custom to their access level.



 if(parseFloat('[@authfield:UserAccessLevel]') == 1) {
document.write('<a href="INSERT_DATAPAGE_1_URL_HERE">Datapage1</a>');
else if(parseFloat('[@authfield:UserAccessLevel]') == 2) {
document.write('<a href="INSERT_DATAPAGE_2_URL_HERE">Datapage2</a>');
} else {document.write('');}
