Role-Based Content Filtering

Postby krgstjean on Wed Mar 24, 2021 10:29 am

Is it possible to have an online output where it will allow your readers to filter the contents based on their role? I am new to Madcap and would like to know if this is possible and/or how is it done. Thanks!

I am not aware of a feature for that in Flare, so I guess you would have to do some additional custom work to do it.

I did notice before there was some custom work to use Flare conditions to filter content in a topic based on a selected version (but it was only per topic it looks like), but potentially something similar could be done done to filter based on role? Here is the link: ... l5-output/

Over in the Flare Slack community, there was a lively discussion recently on a similar subject.

Besides Thomas Tregner's blog article, these two other blog articles offer seeds for a solution: Disclosure: The author of this solution appears to be selling it rather than sharing it with the community.
