Hi John,

With the hlep of data page you can check the access group and get the required fileter value which can passed to RD directly.

Don't forget to mention the data page on pages and classes tab of RD.

Hope this helps..!!

Hi John Create the RD with paramter ID. Use param.ID in where clause

Using RD in layout:

  • Have two layouts with Visible when condition. One for manager access group and other for employee access group 
  • For manager visible layout call RD with ID paramter '100'
  • For employee visible layout call RD with ID paramter '200'

Using RD in Activity:

  • Use can use the same logic to property-set  param.ID value before calling RD.

You can also you an SQL function (CASE WHEN) if the way to figure out the manager is part of row itself or is being passed as a parameter to the report definition. Please refer -

How to refer access group in a SQL query ?

A SQL function can be created with a set of parameters and when used within a report definition, it can take values from the pages defined in the pages and classes tab of the report definition. The value of the access group of the user logged in will be available on the clipboard and you can use the property AccessGroup.pyAccessGroup as the parameter to the function.
