The userview Permission Menu allows you to configure category permissions for user-defined groups at run-time.

This feature eliminates the need for app designers to go into the userview builder to manually set the permission for every menu category.

Get Started

The easiest way to see how the Manage Permission menu works is to download the attached demo app, import, publish and run the app in your Joget platform:


  1. Manage permission menu basically allows you to configure the userview menu category permissions from the run time screens. In this example (Figure 1), there are four menu categories you can assign the view permission.

Figure 1

2. The Configure button (Figure 2) will present you with the following permission options:

  • Is Admin
  • Is Anonymous
  • Bean Shell Script
  • Department
  • Group
  • Logged In User
  • Organization
  • Is Sub Level Userview
  • User

Figure 2

3. In Userview Builder, the Manage Permission menu property is shown in Figure 3 (More details are provided below). 

Figure 3

4. Each menu category permission property (Figure 4) is tagged as "Permission Type = Controlled By Manage Permission Menu" and given a "Permission Key" name. You then map the respective "Permission Key" names into the "Manage Permission > Permissions" grid (Figure 3).

Enable Refined Controls (Requires Admin User Role)?

Allows administrators to implement intricate user permission configurations per group.

Using LDAP / External Directory Manager?

If you are using external directory manager such as the LDAP Directory Manager, you must enable this option to use this Manage Permission menu.

Important Note

Once this feature is enabled, only users with administrative access can manage the permission.

As opposed to Figure 2, when configuring permission, you will be brought to the following screen for finer permission control.

How to use this permission plugin in a userview category

In the userview category that you wish to manage its permission via this plugin, edit the category's permission as shown in figure 4. After setting up the Permission Menu, remember to configure all the respective userview categories. Note that, multiple categories can use the same permission key. Setting up as such will grant multiple categories to a permission group.
