Couldn't find any similar questions on the forum so hopefully someone can help :)

 

At the moment I have a pre-filter on my grid, which filters a column based on the role of the logged in user.

 

filter: {

           filters: [{ field: "RSM", operator: "contains", value: manager}]
         }

 

This pre-filters the grid when the logged in user is a manager. The issue I'm having is it will always pre-filter the grid even if the logged in user isn't a manager. So although the data itself won't be filtered, it will still appear as if the Manager column is being filtered.

So is it possible to only apply the filter if the current user is a manager only? If it's just a regular user then don't apply the filter. 

 

Thanks as always.

Hi Jamie,

If you would like to apply a condition depending on the role of the currently logged user, I suggest that you set the autoBind property of the grid to false. Then, just after the initialization of the grid (in the JavaScript section), check for the role of the user. 

In case the user's role is "Admin", then you would call the filter method of the data source of the grid, passing the desired filter object. In the other case, simply call the read method of the data source. 

Let me know in case further assistance is required.


Kind regards,

Morning Tsvetomir,

 

That's perfect, thank you. Filtering the data source after the grid loads working great.

 

Kind regards,

Jamie
