Show or Hide Ribbon Tab Based on User Permissions by Johan Olivier, Qorus
Show or Hide Ribbon Tab Based on User Permissions by Johan Olivier, Qorus

Recently I wanted to figure out how to show or hide a custom developed SharePoint Ribbon Tab based on the permissions of a logged in SharePoint user.

I have a custom SharePoint 2010 Ribbon Tab with the title ‘Show or Hide Tab’ and I want to hide the tab if a current logged in user is a member of the ‘Root Visitors’ security group.

I do not want to hide the entire ribbon and I also do not want to hide only the inactive buttons. The standard ribbon tabs like ‘Documents’ and ‘Library’ must be visible for all users and audience targeting must be applied only against my new custom ribbon tab.

I can imagine that the requirement is quite a common one. You might want to develop a set of custom tabs which are only visible to users who are members of a specific SharePoint group.

Last week when I was consulting one of my clients I came across a situation that felt to me like a Déjà-vu. The “usual suspect”, someone within an organization with sufficient management influence gets convinced by some Microsoft marketing campaign or other coincidental event that SharePoint and/or ProjectServer is the solution for all problems regarding project and content management within organizations. Licenses are bought and someone from the internal IT installs the software according to some installation manual found in the web. Now, according to Microsoft’s marketing campaign the magic should happen! But – nothing happens, no Harry Potter, no Houdini act – just the same usual problems as every time. Congratulations, you just installed another software that will never be used were Sliver Exhibitors at the European SharePoint Conference 2011.

The Estrel Hotel and Convention Center was a great venue for the SharePoint Conference and our booth location was perfectly situated near a session room and the ever important coffee break station!

Another reason you couldn’t miss our booth was because we had the “brightest” booth in the hall. It was almost as if you were entering the Emerald City of Oz, as we lit up the show with green blinky pins, pens and cups!

So many highlights, so little time, so here are our top highlights from the week.

After a couple days of sleep, I’m just getting back up to speed following a week on the road in Germany and Belgium. After a false start at SeaTac on the 15th with a cancelled flight due to mechanical issues (never a good sign), I was able to get on a flight mid-day Sunday, arriving in Berlin mid-day Monday (after a lovely 5-hour layover in Amsterdam). This was my second time to Berlin, and my first European SharePoint Conference.

With over 700 participants at the Estrel Convention Center, the Axceler booth saw a constant stream of activity, and I found myself booting up my laptop to provide additional demos as the two main monitors were constantly busy. While I am not much of a nightlife guy, we were able to pull together a SharePint event at the AM to PM Bar and Lounge with several other vendors, and spent some quality time with members of the SharePoint community outside of the convention center. Carrie Page provided a summary on the company blog here.
