Example Use-case

As an example, a permission role for an Approver and a Financer is set and the corresponding User Groups are assigned. An employee requires access to both user group's permissions in the userview,
we can utilize the user role selection plugin to allow an employee to have access to both group permissions.

Configure User Role Selection

Please note prior understanding in Joget DX Permission Control is needed. This plugin simply enhances versatility in user permission control in Joget DX.

  1. Please make sure that your intended employee's user account is part of the intended user groups. This plugin will only allow users to switch between the assigned groups that the user is a part of.
  2. Simply set permission roles and groups within the application, and customize the permissions as needed in the userview. In the Permissions option of a permission group, select the User Role using User Group. Proceed to map a User Group to the specified Permission Group.

  3. In the Userview Settings > Configure DX 8 Color Admin > Advanced > Sub Header, add in the following hash variable.

      Note: The hash variable can be customized to showcase a message within the role-switching button.
