    App Actions Filtered by editors of a content


      Hello Jive Developers,


        Following the examples in App Action Contribution Reference I'm trying to create a conditional content app action visible only to the editors of a content. After going through the possible filter options, I haven't been able to find a way to do so. Has anyone tried doing this or know how it can be done?


      Thanks in advance!

          Unfortunately there is no way to put a filter to show app action only to a content's owners or group's owners.

          I had one way in my apps (which I wanted to display only to group admins).

          I displayed the app link to everyone.

          But when a non admin tries to open an app, I had this logic which could detect if current user is owner of the group.

          If no, I would show a message that app cannot be accessed and also display list of group admins who have permissions for the app.


          There is a new config in cloud where you can display app to a specific security group. But when it comes to group admins or content owners, there is no filter for that.

            Hi Anurag,


            You can check if the User is the main Author of the Content with the following App Action path filter:




            However, this does not cover all users which have permissions to change the content. Thanks.
