I have buttons which their access rights are configured, having them to be disabled(hidden) when users does not have sufficient privilege on the page. These buttons are then grouped in the graphic builder.

In the runtime, without logging in with a credential, the buttons are still visible and not hidden. Why is this scenario happens?



When you grouped several objects in the graphic builder, you must configure the "Group Properties" (by double clicking or right click -> Properties) to have the same access rights (disabled/hidden when users doesn't have sufficient privilege).

The access rights previously configured in each of the buttons do not persist if they are grouped into one.

However, if you have configured different (input) commands (e.g. mouse click, etc) or other properties in each of the buttons, they will retain each of the individual object's properties when grouped.
