Hi Rahul,

It is possible to restrict the download to excel functionality on the user role level (see for details).

If you can group the users you want to give access in a certain user role its therefore possible to restrict the download without any enhancements. We use this approach to e.g. disable the download for call center agents but enable it for the call center managers and team lead.

just to add more details regarding the downloadToExcel in the configCellerator. The parameter of the user role overrides the settings in the view implementation (i.e. the downloadToExcel parameter of the configCellerator).

Do you mean the icon 'export to spreadsheet' for result tables?

For example, in business role salespro->search leads. In the view

BT108S_LEA/Result.htm, we can see the source codes like this:

The codes 'DownloadToExcel - "<%= controller->gv_downloadtoexcel "', here controller->gv_downloadtoexcel, if it is TRUE, the 'export to spreadsheet' button will appear. If it is false, the icon won't appear.

Another example is IC_AGENT role, search 'interaction history':

Thus you can enhance the views, add your own logics to check authorizations for users and then set it to TRUE or FALSE.

Best regards, Corrine
