This may be an odd question, but I have a need to filter results shown in a Data Model Admin area based on the user that is logged in.
Essentially we have a series of Data Objects already set up for Hotels, which need to be assigned to a Hotel Manager user account.
However, the client would like to limit what these accounts can access to just this Data Model Admin area, and for each Hotel Manager to only be able to edit the Hotels that are assigned to that particular user ID.

I have been looking into extending the Member Objects, but my biggest problems are currently:
A) How to automatically run a filter on the results of a Data Model Admin
B) How I would then use the current MemberID as the filter (there will be a corresponding field in the data object to match this)

Any thoughts?

One part:


The more complex part is probably extending the getList() function in your ModelAdmin subclass - then you can filter the list how you wish before any other user added filters are applied.
