I added a new column to product grid on back-office Magento, but I want to display it where the role is " admin " and hide it if not.

I add the column using this code :

<column name="user_id">
    <argument name="data" xsi:type="array">
        <item name="config" xsi:type="array">
            <item name="filter" xsi:type="string">text</item>
            <item name="editor" xsi:type="array">
            <item name="editorType" xsi:type="string">text</item>
            <item name="validation" xsi:type="array">
                <item name="required-entry" xsi:type="boolean">true</item>
        <item name="label" xsi:type="string" translate="true">User</item>
  • Did you have a created custom module for adding a new column? – Kamlesh Solanki Apr 30 '19 at 8:41
  • @KamleshSolanki yes sir – sayou Apr 30 '19 at 8:45
  • Then you have to create acl.xml for your module and given custom permission for a particulre user from the backend. – Kamlesh Solanki Apr 30 '19 at 8:48
  • @KamleshSolanki I have an ACL, but I added a new column to product grid, so, I need to add permission just to it, and hide it when the role is not Admin – sayou Apr 30 '19 at 8:49
  • But it is not possible to given particular column permission in Magento. But I am not sure it is possible or not – Kamlesh Solanki Apr 30 '19 at 8:52

To help more people to fix this problem I will share the solution :

first, you need to add this code to your ui_componenet XML file

<item name="componentDisabled" xsi:type="boolean">true</item>

after you will create a file on NAMESPACE/MODULE/Ui/Listing/Columns/yourfile.php with this code :

public function prepare()
        if (YOUR_CONDITION) { 
            $this->_data['config']['componentDisabled'] = false;
