    Hi All,

     I've created a dynamic content with a field which is used to specific the role of user can access/view the item. So that, when backend user access the dynamic content list in backend, the content will by automatically filtered by the user role of current user. Thanks

    Hi Gary,

    The functionality you require is not possible due to the fact that the Data.svc service that populates the dynamic content backend grid is internal an therefore there is no way for you to extend the default source it binds to the control. 

    You are able to add filters to the grid as explained in this blog post but there is no way to add permissions to a filter.
