Role-based Sidebar Rules

Hi Contentul Community,

I am using a few third-party Apps (Netlify, Smartling) that while super useful to me as an administrator, are potentially dangerous or confusing for Editors/Translators to have access to within the UI. For example: I don’t want an Author to be able to trigger a production deploy from the Netfliy app, but I certainly would like to be able to as an administrator. We don’t have a ton of CMS users at the moment, so it is not a huge issue, but I was wondering if there were a way to restrict access to an app or sidebar widget based on a user’s role. Is this something that the app /extension developer would need to integrate, or is there a way to have role-based sidebars? I could see this being extremely useful in building out the app ecosystem. Any info or recommendations on how to handle this would be great!
