Assign record visibility by geo-area in model driven app

Hi to all,

 

I need that users can see/update entities record where the area of the record is equal to user area, I'll try to explain what i test.

 

1. Add new custom entity 'areas'

2. Add 1:N relationship 'users' (1) => (N) 'areas'

3. Add lookup field to 'areas' in one ore more entities eg. 'contacts'

4. Add new entity user_to_contacts that has these relationships: (1) user => (N) user_to_contacts, (1) contacts => (N) user_to_contacts.

5. Add new grid for 'users' that filter on currentuser.id = user_to_contacts.user_id

6. When add/remove an area from a user update user_to_contacts adding/removing records

7. When add/remove/change contact's are update user_to_contacts adding/removing records

PS: i tried 1 to 5 step and it works, instead of use 'users' i think it works also with 'teams' entity.

 

My questions are:

Is this a good and practicable idea? If yes, some one can explain me ho to do 6 and 7 points?

Is there a smarter approach to do this? I try also to create a TeamArea1, TeamArea2 ..... TeamAreaN and assign the records to the team and not to the users security is not exported for solutions.

 

Thanks in advance

Hi @nicfil ,

Yeah, I agree with you. For your scenario, I think custom JavaScript code may be the only available solution.

Hi @nicfil ,

Based on the step4 that you mentioned, within your "user_to_contacts" Entity, the user and the contact would have a N:N relationship, is it right?

 

Regarding the Step6, I suppose that you want to remove related records related to this specific user against these contacts are related to this removed area.

Regarding the Step7, I suppose that you want to remove related users related to this specific contact against these users are related to this remove area, is it right?

 

For Step1 through Step5, I think it is a practicable idea, which could be achieved in your Model-Driven app. But for Step6 and Step7, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in Model-Driven app.

 

If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:

Note: The Parental Relationship Advanced behavior could only applied to Entities related with One-to-Many or Many-to-One relationship directly rather than Entities related with indirect relationship. Please check the following article for more details:

Hi @v-xida-msf,

 

Thanks for your reply,

 

For step4: yes!

 

For step6: when an area is added to a users then add relationships to all contact in the same area, when an area is removed from users then remove all relationships  to contacts.

 

For step7: when an area is added to a contact then add relationships to all users in the same area, when an area is removed from contact then remove all relationships to users.

 

For step6 and step7, can i use a js plugin?

 

Thanks again
