Hope you enjoying WFM. I had a query, we are showing a list of both external and internal users. While internal users are federated and cannot be deleted. Only external users can be deleted. We have two conditions to be fulfilled :

1. Both type of users to be assigned roles. Multi-select users and assign them to the role.

2. Multi-select users and delete them ( only external users )

So since we have two type of behaviors showing them together, I am facing problem if a user selects both types then what to show

It would be really helpful any suggestions to get rid of this roadblock. Be safe

Showing numbers next to bulk actions may ease the case. For example, if user select 5 users which 2 of them can not be deleted, bulk action will show: Assign role[5] , Delete[3]. By doing this, you are allowing user to perform every action.

  • Thanks for the answer. Even in that view, it won't be clear which users he's assigning and which users he's going to delete

    Yep that's right, but is that important to see which of them? Because, I'm thinking this as a role management problem rather than a visualization problem. So the primary aim here is to allow actions which user can perform, rather than showing the exact deletable people. If s/he can't delete them, obviously s/he shouldn't be deleting them at the first place or needs higher administrative role. Commented Mar 29, 2020 at 21:24
