Good morning, I have a problem with how to restrict the visibility of the request areas from the user department logged in the data partitions
Unfortunately, Data Partitions do not work like that. (Also, do you want the user to be able to see a Request Area, fill out the Request, and then be told when they are trying to save that they cannot use that Request Area? Wouldn't it be better if they could not see the Request Areas you don't want them to use?)
Here is how Data Partitions work:
Here is my recommended approach:
Ian, can you elaborate? for example, give some example? Thanks _Chi
Area: Access DatabaseDepartment: ITOnly users with the IT department can create calls to the area Access Database
Department is not an attribute on the Request Area (pcat) object. How will you map Request Areas to Departments?
I want to make a restriction for the creation of a call, if the area selected is "X" and the user's login is "Y" does not allow the creation of the call.
The department I would get the information from the logged in user.
Ian, I don't think you can use data partition as there is no if...then...else... for data partition. What you could do is put those IT Department contacts in a role and then create a custom form group for this role...for this form group, there is no limitation so these users can create a ticket with Access Database area; and for the rest, you could customize the detail_xx.htmpl page to add a where statement for the area field so that the user will not be able to select Access Database area. Hope this helps. Thanks _Chi
