How do I check if the Current User is an Administrator?

0
Hello, I'm a 2nd year University student working at Siemens for the year and consider myself a newbie Mendix developer.   Just wondering how I can check if the currently logged in user is an administrator? So far, I’ve created a decision block which checks if the logged in user has an administrator username but I want to check the account by type rather than by name. How can I do this? Thanks in advance :)

The retrieve with: 

[System.UserRoles = $currentUser]
[id = '[%UserRole_Administrator%]']

The decision with 

$UserRole_Administrator != empty

You can do an retrieve of the entity System.Userrole with the following xpath:

[id = '[%UserRole_Administrator%]']
[System.UserRoles = $currentUser]


If the userrole is retrieved the user is an administrator. If it is empty, it is not.

Can”t you do this by using the object decision?
