to my understanding controlling visibility based on user / user role is not possible.  Current implementation as i see it provides some visibility options (Hide if Empty, Hide on Creation, Hide in Workflow States, Hide if no Links Exist, Hide if no Association Exists...) in the Editor Presentation of the attribute, what you seek appears an RFE to me...

However, though visible, you can control actions on it to specific users based on the role they are assigned and the permissions associated with their role.  You can learn more on the controlling user actions by following the link :

As answered above, this is not possible today. However, Work Item 260680 has some first collection of ideas to improve attribute customization. Hide an attribute on condition is one of the thoughts. A Java Based condition would be able to get at user roles and use that for hiding.

Hello Ralph,

Please do you have any news on this topic?

Would it bee possible to implement some similar feature to hide presentations in RTC based on user roles?

Thank you for your reply.
