I have a workflow where when opening the workflow, a background user authentication is done to know if user has proper rights to execute the workflow. Now the check is usually very quick (<2 seconds) and if the user does not have the rights, we display an error notification about it and how to get the same.
There are 2 parts where I want some feedback:
- Do you think we should show an alert on the UI saying that the system is checking the users right to execute this action since this would be very fast and would go away from the UI fairly quickly. Is that adding any value in sense of users knowing that a background check is happening even if its gone before they even see it?
- Also, if the user has authentication rights, should we display that information on the UI or would that be just adding clutter because, it wouldn't change anything for the user in the workflow and the user would continue as usual?
------ Adding more context------
This is not about a login workflow but about role based access control thing in a particular workflow where the system checks a users permission to execute an action before they can proceed with clicking the button to execute it.
