I have the following form inside my SharePoint 2013 Issue tracking tool, which I edited using info path:-

enter image description here

But I want to hide the last three columns , unless the login user is inside a SharePoint user group named “Issue Tracking manager”.

So can anyone advice if this is achievable using info path?

Yes, this is possible.

You can add Last three field in section (Containers). After adding fields in section, add rules to this section to display only when login user is inside a SharePoint user group.

You can add data connection having SharePoint user group there. And validate the same using rule applied in section.

The blog http://blog.symprogress.com/2011/05/infopath-list-form-hidedisable-fields-based-on-sharepoint-group-membership/ can help you about it.

  • seems that the approach mentioned in the link yuor provide did not work with some users, as mentioned in the comments... also it is talking about SP 2010 , while i am using SP 2013
