Is there a way to hide nodes or results if it has field "restricted" type bool with value 1 if the logged in user not in admin group without writing custom code. i could do that with views hooks like "hook_views_post_execute" with writing custom code but it will decrease the performance because i will load the node field in "foreach", so is there module can handle that from the back end !?

    You can use hook_node_access. The node is already loaded for inspection there. Jul 15, 2014 at 23:34

The field permissions module lets you assign permissions to individual fields.

enter image description here


This helped me better as its global solution for the view i want to hook.

function rcreee_helper_views_post_execute(&$view){
$views_name = array('country_profile_item_energy_efficiency',
$restricted_groups = array(3=>'administrator',9=>'Premium Registered');
global $user, $restricted_groups;
$has_access = count(array_intersect_key($restricted_groups , $user->roles));
        foreach ($view->result as $result_k => $result_v){

                && $result_v->_field_data['nid']['entity']->field_visibility['und'][0]['value']==1)



  • Just a few words of warning about this approach: 1. it won't work properly with paging; 2. it might be neater to use a permission rather than a hard-coded list of roles, to make it easier to update; 3. the nodes are only hidden for these views, there may be plenty of other "security holes" on your site letting the user see premium content. A more complete but more complicated way to solve the problem is using Drupal's built-in node access system.
