Hi @Anonymous ,

What permission do you want to use? Do you have a list of users that you want to hide the controls from?

Add an O365 Connector:


You can try adding this to your AppStart:

ClearCollect(AllowedUsers,""); //Collects Allowed Users

Unlock the Control that you want to hide and change this Visible Property to:

If(MyProfile.Mail in AllowedUsers.Value,true,false);

@K-A-R-L  thanks for your response.. I think it will not work for model driven apps. I have users like readonly user, Owner, etc.. so for readonly user i need to hide some fields in my model driven form. How I can achieve it..

Hi @Anonymous ,

Apologies, I didn't see that the tags are for CDS Model Driven Apps.

Can you please try to check your filter criteria?  Within filter criteria, select new filter> Related> Account. You then get the the option to add a related field (In this case your User) to the filter. 

I'm not sure about permissions though.
