Datapage Depending on User Role

Recommended Posts


I'm working on process that requires different fields to filter values depending on a 'role' field in my user auth table.  Some fields will also be display only depending on a field being higher than a certain value (ie field x > 100). 

I have 7 user roles. 

Since 1 rule can only be applied to the form inputs, I'm unable to use rules to tackle my problem. I'd have to set 7 rules for each input.

Have a couple ideas on how to tackle this problem, but they all involve making duplicate copies of the form for different user roles and applying that rules that way. 

This solution looks promising, but since I'm embedding my data pages in a PHP page (WAMP Stack) I'm not sure if it's possible to pull the role from the embedded form using JavaScript (my menu bar is in the php  file, not the datapage).  

My only other idea would be to put a blank HTML datapage which redirects to a user-specific input form based on the user's auth role. I'd have to make 7 copies (for each role) which would be a pain to update.

Anyone have any other ideas?

var someVal = '[@field:someField]'
var someUser = '[authfield:someUserField]'
var someElement = document.getElementById('elementID');
var someElement1 = document.getElementById('elementID1');
var someElement2 = document.getElementById('elementID2');

if(someVal > 100) {
   someElement.style.display = 'none';

if(someUser == 'someParam'){
 someElement1.style.display = 'none';
 someElement2.style.display = 'none';
