Display logic rules should work on Primo users NOT logged in
Display logic rules currently only work if a user logs in Primo. Also, the rules only work to hide a service (not show a service). Also, Primo New UI does not allow forcing users to log in.
So, we have a scenario where we want CCC Get It Now articles to display only for our Faculty user group. However, the article links are displaying to everyone (guest) - until the user logs in and then the links are hidden for everyone except our faculty. Because everyone starts out in Primo as guest, this defeats the purpose of the rule.
Another scenario is that a college that we are in a consortium with wants to hide EBSCO links if Gale links exist. They can create a display logic rule to do this, but the rule will not work for guest, only for logged in users.
Another fix for this issue would be to allow a display logic rule that will basically only SHOW a service if it is a certain user group. This would allow us to show the CCC Get It Now interface if the user group is faculty. However the display logic rules do not allow this type of logic.

But this should be Primo category, not Alma...

This is really awful UX!

Thank you for posting this idea, April.
What I would expect the system to do is to either
- hide the service from all users that are not logged in as soon as a rule hides it from a single user group or
- offer administrators the possibility to hide the service from all users which have no user group (i.e. which are not logged in).

This idea would also allow us to display restricted password information for electronic resources to appropriate user groups while hiding it from the general public.
