  • Hello,

    I have a custom dashboard where I have a Settings Page. So in that settings page I have a button that redirects you to another page with more specific settings and not every one should modify those settings, I can simply give edit permissions only to some users, but it will be better if you can hide that button based on which user is logged in.

    So my question is if I can see somewhere which user is logged in and create a variable which will store the name of the user?

    Thank you!


  • @sky_watcher I've done something similar just with permissions.

    You can edit the access permission of the custom page so that button will not redirect the users without permission to the target pages.


  • You should

    • Make sure that the data points have permissions set appropriately
    • Set the read permission on the page that you don't want limited users to have access to
    • Use ng-if / ng-disabled to hide or disable components on your page that everyone has access too
    <span>Your username is '{{User.current.username}}'.</span>
    
    <div ng-if="User.current.hasPermission('superadmin')">
        <span>Your user is an administrator.</span>
    </div>
    
    <div>
        <md-button class="md-raised" ng-disabled="!User.current.hasPermission('superadmin')">Go to other page</md-button>
    </div>
