I have a SharePoint Online intranet portal where everyone is having Read access. However I have few lists where certain records should be viewed by admins only. Is there a way to restrict a view to certain Group on SP Online. or any other approach? Ido not want to create folders inside list and break role inheritance.


For SPO modern sites, item unique permission will be the best and only approach. You can set a special view to hide columns but not items. Manage the access of these important records to only allow certain admins.

You can consider making a custom permission level that restricts view creation and then pre-create views for the readers and have your admins create personal views.

Note that this is not a watertight solution as your readers can technically see the items and retrieve them for example using the Rest API
