Web Parts: Permissions Required to View

Documentation
This topic is under construction for the 17.3 release of LabKey Server. For current documentation of this feature, click here.

You can restrict the visibility of a web part to only those users who have been granted a particular permission. Use this feature to declutter a page or target content for each user, for example, hiding links to protected resources that the user will not able to access.

  • Open the (triangle) menu and choose Permissions.
  • In the pop-up, select the Required Permission from the list of available permission levels (roles) a user may have.
  • By default, the system checks whether the user has the required permission in the current folder. To check the user's permissions against another folder, click Choose Folder and browse to select the desired folder.

Set the required permission and click Save.

In the security user interface, administrators typically interact with "roles," which are named sets of permissions. The relationship between roles and permissions is described in detail in these topics:

These settings apply to individual web parts, so you could configure two web parts of the same type with different permission settings.

Note that these settings do not change the security settings already present in the current folder and cannot be used to grant access on the resource displayed in the web part that the user does not already have.
