Using Roles for Button Visibility in Perspective

This seems trivial, but I can’t seem to figure out why this will not work. I am trying to set a button’s visibility based on the session’s logged in user role. This is the expression I created as a binding to the button visibility - {session.props.auth.user.roles} = “Administrator”. I have checked the spelling and I have tried other roles. When editing the expression, it evaluates as false without any errors.

I created a label to display the user’s role and it correctly displays the role of the user that is logged in.

Why does this not evaluate correctly for the visibility?

That property has a list of all the roles, so a straight compare won’t work.

The isAuthorized expression works for this application. See here:


That worked. Thank you!
