Hide Confluence buttons

We hide the "Tools" button but we did it for each user. Is it possible to hide a button for a group?

Hi Clarisse,

You can put the code below before the <head> tage in your Confluence Admin >> Layout >> Main Layout. Replace the <group-name> with the name of the group you wish to hide the tool.

#if ($userAccessor.hasMembership('&lt;group-name&gt;', $helper.action.remoteUser.name))
&lt;style type="text/css"&gt;
  #action-menu-link {
        display:none !important;

Please note, this only work if you are using the default theme.

Hope this helps!

Is there a way for this to work for the Documentation Theme aswell?

Thanks for any help.
