Hide fields based on user role

Use this example to conditionally display fields for certain user roles.

This example shows how to conditionally display fields depending on the user’s role. Sometimes it’s desirable to hide certain portions of the form for certain users because it’s either irrelevant or sensitive information.

For this to work, each field you want to make hidden should have the ‘Hidden’ checkbox checked in the app builder so that the field is hidden by default. It’s desirable to have the logic be based on who can see it, rather than who cannot see it.

ON('load-record', function(event) {
  var adminRoles = ['Owner', 'Manager', 'Custom Admin Role'];

  // if the current role is one of the designated admin roles...
  if (ISROLE(adminRoles)) {
    // make the fields visible
    SETHIDDEN('sensitive_field_1', false);
    SETHIDDEN('sensitive_field_2', false);
  }
});
