Hi, Is there a way possible in which : 1. When the user log in to the aem and on start of aem.html, the options which are available on the navigation screen be shown to particular user. 2  For eg we have options on /aem/start.html such as Sites, assets etc and we want to restrict only one options to be shown based on the user. Thanks, Manpreet

Are you talking about dynamically changing the UI in the AEM UI based on users whom log in?

Hi,

This can be done with the help of overlay and sling feature flag.

Please check below article:

Yes Scott.

Please find the screenshot below.

Based on the user logging in belonging to the different user groups, we need to show and hide these options.

Thanks,

You can also add ACLs under those navigation nodes in crx to show/hide based on permissions.

I was able to achieve this with help of ACL. We can manage the permissions for specific node for users and hence can achieve this functionality. Thanks everyone for the help.
