Napili Navigation Menu - Menu Items Defined by Permissions

Hi, I want to know if it's possible to limit the visible Menu Items in a Community with Profiles (where certain community users can see some Menu Items, while others cannot). Has anyone been able to accomplish this one thus far?

Kind Regards,

Hi Erick

Did you eventually get a response for this question?

My understanding is that for those tabs based on Object Pages, adding/removing access to the object on the profile also removes access to the tab in the Community (i.e. the tab does not display on the Navigation Bar).

However, I think the above is not possible when the tab is not based on a standard object page. i.e. Community Page, External URL, etc. Can anyone confirm?

Hi Hector, were you able to confirm your question? I can confirm that removing object permission on the profile does in fact remove access to the tab in community. My question is more specific to the tabs that are not related to standard objects.

Hi all, this question was asked a year ago. Since then Salesforce has given us the ability to control that visibility depending on the different profiles that users have. You could control such visibility in one of two ways: - Creating a different Community (with separate tabs) - Creating different Page Variations (which came out with Summer '16 release) You could also limit Object page tabs by limiting profile visibility into that object.

Thanks for responding Erick. your post led me to the right place. I was able to hide the tabs by changing the audience criteria.

Thank you!
