Hide a Child Folder using the API

By utilizing the folder logic within Roles, you can control the folders that users have access to.

Before:

In this example we will be hiding the folder named 'Child Folder'.

Code:

The following is a breakdown of each line:

  • Line 1 - Get the Role 
  • Line 2 - Activate the Role
  • Line 3 - Set the 'Include All Folders' flag to true
  • Line 4 - Create a new Folder Access entry
  • Line 5 - Set the name to the path name of the folder you wish to hide

After:

'Child Folder' no longer appears inside 'Parent Folder'

Note: Setting 'Include All Folders' to false will have a reverse effect and cause only the specified folder to display. The permissions of parent folders will be inherited by all child folders.
