Disable field group for specific userid

  • Hi everybody,
    I’m using ACF PRO and I’m trying to disable a field group for specific userid.
    I’m using the prepare_field filter to hook into this. My code works if I’m using this whit a fieldkey but not with a group.

    // key=group_… // doesn’t get trigged
    // key=field_… // works

    I do have a lot of field inside this group, is there a better way to achieve this?

    function ial_enable_acf_office_site( $field ) {
    $currentUserId = get_current_user_id();
    $user = wp_get_current_user();
    $allowed_roles = array( ‘editor’, ‘administrator’ );

    $userEnabled = array(
    15 // list of user id enabled

    // Always enable for editor and admin
    if ( array_intersect( $allowed_roles, $user->roles ) || in_array($currentUserId, $userEnabled) ) {
    return $field;
    return false; //hide the field
    add_filter(‘acf/prepare_field/key=group_62b5e82341764’, ‘ial_enable_acf_office_site’);

    Thanks in advance

  • You cannot use acf/prepare_field for entire field groups. Only individual fields.

    You use location rules to hide field groups for specific user roles.
