How to restrict Data for particular specific user in Power App ?

Hello Everyone,

I am new to power apps, I am trying to build an app where a manager can enter notes for his employees. So far, the app is working successfully. I am struck up with creating granular level permissions in the app. Please help me with the following scenario and how to proceed with restricting the managers to only see and edit their location data

I have a table dbo.Manager_Information_Table

Division

Location

Manger Name

Email

1

NJ

dan

d@gmail.com

NJ

jon

j@gmail.com

2

KY

dan

greg

g@gmail.com

3

greg

g@gmail.com

dan

d@gmail.com

 

 

 

 

 

I have another table where respective mangers should enter notes for their employee who belongs to their locations and divisions

 

 

dbo. Employee_Timesheet_Table

 

Employeename

Division

Location

TotalHoursworked

Notes by manager

E1

1

NJ

8

 

E2

I am trying to create granular permissions to the mangers. So when they open the app they should be only able to see their employees who belong to their location.

For example: If Manager: Dan opened the app he should be able to see data and edit notes only for his divisions and locations in the gallery as below

Employeename

Division

Location

TotalHoursworked

Notes by manager

E1

Re: How to restrict Data for particular specific user in Power App ?

Hi @VenkataSai ,

Do you want filter the Employee_Timesheet_Table based on the current manager?

The solution is: firstly, filter dbo.Manager_Information_Table based on current manager's Email to get this manager's location.

Then filter dbo. Employee_Timesheet_Table based on the locations that you get.

Firstly, you need to connect your app with these two tables.

Then insert a gallery to display the filtered Employee_Timesheet_Table.

Set the gallery's Items to :

Filter(dbo. Employee_Timesheet_Table, 
       Lacation in 
       Filter(dbo.Manager_Information_Table,Email=User().Email).Location
)

//you could get current user's email by using formula like this: User().Email

 

Then the gallery will filter based on current manager. Manager could only view the employees who belong to his location.

OnStart of the App Set a Variable:

If only filter Location
Set(varUserLocation,LookUp(Manager_Information_Table,Email=User().Email,Location));

Set(varUserDivison,LookUp(Manager_Information_Table,Email=User().Email,Division))

 

On the Gallery items Filter:

Filter(Employee_Timesheet_Table,varUserLocation in Or varUserDivison in Division)

OR

Filter(Employee_Timesheet_Table,Location=varUserLocation Or Division=varUserDivison)
