This example is a quick solution to hide the history on objects for Users having Support Agent Profile

  • It's not fully secured as the hiding is done on client side
  • It can be enhanced by a JS snippet that would remove the information from the DOM completely, but an advanced user could still set a breakpoint in its browser to prevent the JS snippet from being executed and search in the history
  • Allowed profiles could be put in a module parameter, if they need to be changed over time.
