  • Here other method means if not possible to hide block ID, then I can call block ID to phtml file vendor/module/view/frontend/customfile.phtml Then even to hide html data group based. Need code to run vendor/module/observer/customfile to run event e.g. public function execute(Observer $observer) { if command ...} I've tried $layout = $observer->getLayout(); $block = $layout->getBlock('static-block-id-1'); This will not run as I think this code is for dynamic magento core ID. I've tried javascript to hide but unable to connect to group so that this can enable/disable from backend.

Magento renders a cms block using \Magento\Cms\Block\Block at frontend.

So, if you want to stop rendering a cms block based on customer group then create an after plugin on Magento\Cms\Block\Block:toHtml() and stop rendering the content for some customer groups.

Create di.xml at your module:

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:ObjectManager/etc/config.xsd">
    <type name="Magento\Cms\Block\Block">
        <plugin disabled="false" name="Devamitbera_StackExchange_Plugin_Magento_Cms_Block_Block" sortOrder="10" type="Devamitbera\StackExchange\Plugin\Magento\Cms\Block\Block"/>

##Plugin class


namespace Devamitbera\StackExchange\Plugin\Magento\Cms\Block;

use Magento\Customer\Model\Context as CustomerContext;

class Block
     * @var \Magento\Framework\App\Http\Context
    protected $httpContext;

    public function __construct(
        \Magento\Framework\App\Http\Context $httpContext
        $this->httpContext = $httpContext;
    public function afterToHtml(\Magento\Cms\Block\Block $subject, $result) {
        $blockId = $subject->getBlockId();
        $customerGroupId = $this->httpContext->getValue(CustomerContext::CONTEXT_GROUP);
         * If customer group id X match then
        if($customerGroupId === '2'){
            return '';
        return $result;

     * Add Customer Group to cache
     * @param \Magento\Cms\Block\Block $subject
     * @param $result
     * @return mixed
    public function afterGetCacheKeyInfo(\Magento\Cms\Block\Block $subject, $result)
           $result[] =  $this->httpContext->getValue(CustomerContext::CONTEXT_GROUP);
        return $result;
  • I've re-edited question in details. Please tell me in more details to implement, guidance would be greatly appreciated.
