Sometimes it is neccessary to tailor a JSP so that certain links and regions of the page are only accessible to certain users. This article addresses how to do this .
The way to do this is to add code sections like this to the JSP , which make use of the isUserInRole method, part of the built in HttpServletRequest API used by jsps
% if(request.isUserInRole("admins") )
<display all the links>
% if(request.isUserInRole("reviewers") )
<just display some of the links t>

As with all changes users are strongly advised to make all changes and thoroughly test them in a test environment first.
