    How to best limit access to a field/column?

    Jakob Jäderbo

      If we have a situation where we have have certain fields, for instance customer contact details, that we want to make sure only authorised users are able to access is there a simple way to do this?

       

      From what I have understood of section access you can use OMIT to prevent specific users from viewing specific fields. But as we have multiple users, most of whom would not be permitted to view those fields it seems that can become a bit cumbersome. Is there any way to make it into a whitelist system such that no rows are hidden for any users, but e.g. phone numbers are hidden unless the user is listed as part of the outbound team?

       

      It is assumed that the client application runs in an Ajax environment, some users have CAL access, other are named users, there are multiple fields to restrict and none is to be given access to the restricted fields unless explicitly stated.

       

      How would one solve this problem in a way that is easy to maintain for developers and administrators alike?
