This code will retrieve the user id of the logged in user. It will then check to see if the user has the Cms Administrator role. I used this logic with a custom field so I could control the ability to edit.


${esc.hash}set (${esc.dollar}foundUser = ${esc.dollar}cmsuser.getUserByUserId(${esc.dollar}session.getAttribute("USER_ID"))) 

    ${esc.hash}if(${esc.dollar}cmsuser.isUserRole(${esc.dollar}foundUser, "CMS Administrator"))
