Nav Item- Open Link - Role Based Visability

Hi, I’d like to add a nav item that opens a link to external site however i can’t seem to limit it to a particular user role (as it’s not a flow or page), its available for everyone. This link needs to be only visible for one user role. Anyone have any ideas?  Thanks, Andy

Seems to be impossible bt it’s worth adding it to the idea forum.

A possible workaround would be to call a microflow that is limited to certain userroles. This microflow can open a page with a redirect.


It is not possible to do with external pages as you can not call show-page actions in microflows with a defined url.

There might be a rather complicated work around:

you might need to replace the navigation widget with containers and buttons that you have to style to look like a navigation, the buttons call microflows or pages and maybe you can use a java action in a microflow to open the external page. a lot of maybes and a cumbersome approach


Thanks for replies

I’d prefer not to mess with the navigation widget as we have lots of roles and it’s very easy to manage.

I thought I could do it from a nanoflow but it looks like it can’t call javascript in our current version 7.23.5, it’s in the documentation though so looks to have been introduced
