We are working on a portal that will be for all multiple clients we have, of course none of them use the same vendors to collect data so I will have information from some of them that I don't have for others, (sigh). What we would like to do is render reports based on who you are, so if I had 4 reports on tab 1 of a portal I could render the all the reports for one client but only three for the rest of them. I would like to figure out some way to do this other than what I am thinking of which is to render an empty report with a message that says " you do not have the data to support this report." Cause that would just cause a ton of questions and issues...... Does anyone have any idea if something like this has been done elsewhere or how I could go about doing this?

MG,

if this were me, I wouldn't leverage Portal for that logic. I would create my own dashboard and use javascript to identify what to show based on whether data returns for the particular report in question. If the user doesn't have any data to support I would hide that particular IFrame from view and adjust the other IFrames accordingly to fill the space.

Another option you might want to explore, is if you don't give access to a report for a user, how does the portal handle it? Will it not include it and adjust the frames accordingly? I haven't tried this with portals as I generally will handle the logic myself for situations like this, but that is somewhere I would try if I wanted to leverage the tool more for things like this.

Thanks Eric,
No sure my javascript is up to that task, but I will give it a try.

We have denied user access with the security module, when we know users may not see certain reports. That may also work for you.
Can become an admin nightmare.
