    I want to propose the following feature request:
    - add properties (key / value pairs) to users and groups
    - retrieve these properties from within a report, which will give the ability to adapt the report based on the property key / value pair

    - I add the property editable = true to a specific user or group
    - in a report I retrieve the logged in user via inLogin and retrieve a list of properties
    - code in the report makes some fields editable when the editable property is set to true for this user

    You could create your own tables for these and use the login/group to fetch the data you define. This way, you could have the exact behavior you need.

    which we did, actually - and I thought it would be nice for all to have :-)

    Editability is usually part of the business logic, and each setup has its own set of rules. Trying to make it generic enough for all users could lead to a situation where it would not serve anyone properly. It is easy enough for you to create your own business logic and the structure around it.
