Disable view functionality

Contents[Hide]

1. Overview

By default, the full application functionality is enabled and users with the right privileges can use it. Some of the functionality, such as the ability to use the context menu, can be disabled on the view or adapter level. This means that even if the user has this privilege enabled on their account, they will not be able to utilize it on the specific dashboard, report, or scorecard, and the specific data visualization.

Note
This functionality can only be used to disable active application privileges. To grant additional privileges to users, see the example in the article Application privileges.

2. Disable application privileges on the view
