Gadget role-based permissions

I’d like to use a custom iFrame gadget on my dashboard but only make it available to certain user roles. Unfortunately I don’t think this is possible but I’d love to know for sure if someone can confirm my fears!

Even if CM1 cannot restrict dashboard gadgets based on user roles if I could pass some identifying information in the URL to the iFrame content then I could do something in my gadget app, but I fear that’s not possible either…

Am I correct or just getting confused by all of this! Thanks in advance,


We do not currently provide the ability to restrict which users can access a given iframe gadget. When you create an iframe gadget, it is available only for the user who creates the gadget. It doesn’t go into a library that other users can browse to access.
