Get User Privilege on a field – Dynamics 365 CE

Hi Everyone,

Today I got a requirement to check whether the user has access to read the data on the field where feild level security has been enabled and do some operations.

We can achieve this using getUserPrivilege() client API.

var fieldPrivileges = formContext.getAttribute("new_fieldsecurityfield").getUserPrivilege();

Result when user doesn’t have permission.

Result when user have permission.

Hope this helps.

Happy 365’ing

Hide Formselector on the Form – Dynamics 365 CE/CRM

Hi Everyone,

Today I got a requirement to hide FormSelector on the Form as Users would have access to multiple forms but we have to navigate them to right form based on a field value on the record and we shouldn’t give an option to change the form to the User.

My initial thought was it’s not possible to hide formselector but one of my colleagues came up with the below piece of the code and it worked like a charm.

Logic is simple, set Visibility of the forms to False.

 var formContext = executionContext.getFormContext();
    formContext.ui.formSelector.items.get().forEach(function (item, index) {
        // hide all the form apart from Opportunity.
        if (item.getLabel() != "Opportunity") {

Without above code, we see formselector

With code, we don’t see formselector

Hope this helps.

Happy 365’ing
