Role Based Permissions



I have an app and I'm using @RezaDorrani's method of "Implementing Role Based Security in Power Apps". It's an excellent idea but it isn't working as I'm expecting it to.  I may be doing something wrong.  I had a couple of users as ADMIN to my app and they were in the 365 admin group we created.  When I remove these users from the ADMIN group, they still had access to the admin section of the app.  I'm starting to wonder if there is any caching in Power Apps that is allowing these users to still see the admin section.  Is that a possibility?

Hi @theisogunro ,
Please check if you have removed them from the role-based list also which helps validate if they are an admin or not. ( check 10th min content of the above-referred video ).
If you are storing the info in a global variable, try resetting the value each time. If they are not refreshing the application or not closing the browser, the previous value will help them to revalidate the form as Admin. Hope this will help.
