dear Readers,

Good afternoon.  Thank you for taking the time to read my question.

We have an Arc Engine/Arc Objects application that we are planning to re-write in ArcGIS Pro.  We want to take advantage of the portal features and ArcGIS Pro features while re-doing the application.

One of the things that we wanted to use was portal security to limit the functions/items on the ribbon or tabs the users see.

One thought was to create a MyAppGroup and store all the app-specific layers in that Group.  If a person is not authorized to this group, then ribbon items can be hidden.  We are also thinking about returning a NULL from a pro configuration to hide the whole option and open regular ArcGIS Pro.

I am sure I am not the first one trying to make this happen.  Any white paper, blog would be greatly appreciated.

I have downloaded the samples project from GIT hub, and I am also studying the same.

Very similar to my needs - but do not address my questions:

thank you and have a good weekend.

In order to control your ArcGIS Pro custom tabs and controls you can use 'States and Conditions' as outlined here:  ProConcepts Framework · Esri/arcgis-pro-sdk Wiki (github.com)

There's a guide on how to do this here:  ProGuide Code Your Own States and Conditions · Esri/arcgis-pro-sdk Wiki (github.com)

and some sample code here:

arcgis-pro-sdk-community-samples/Framework at master · Esri/arcgis-pro-sdk-community-samples (github...

You would then in your code-behind find the portal user's group:  PortalGroup Class—ArcGIS Pro

and depending on the groups returned you can then either activate or deactivate the appropriate state.

Finally, since Module Add-ins are loaded JIT (Just In Time) and by default are not loaded until the add-in module is required by the User Interface, you can change that behavior to load your module at startup as described here:  ProConcepts Framework · Esri/arcgis-pro-sdk Wiki (github.com)
