How to hide the "Switch to view mode" button based on a role

This article provides an example JavaScript snippet that could hide the "Switch to view mode" button based on the user's role. 

Screenshot 2024-01-23 at 12.59.43.png

How to use it?

First of all, you need to get the role name you'd like to hide this button for. It can be checked by running GET/roles API v 0.9 in the Sisense Swagger:
In our example, we're applying the script to the designer role i.e. 'contributor':

Secondly,  you need to update the user role in "baseRoleName" in the script and add it to the dashboard via the 'Edit Script' option: 


The code snippet:


dashboard.on('initialized', () => {

    if (prism.user.baseRoleName === 'contributor') {





After that, please save the changes and refresh the dashboard page. Hope this helps!
