Restrict access to a tab on a record in CRM 4.0

I have a custom entity in CRM with 6 tabs on it. I want everyone to have access to this entity, but I only want 1 department to be able to get to a certain tab. It doesn't look like I can do this through the security settings. Am I missing something or is there another way to do this?

There is no supported way to do this. The unofficial way is to use JavaScript in the OnLoad event of the custom entity that hides the tab. Microsoft do not provide a supported way to do this in CRM4 (they do in CRM 2011).

Your JavaScript will need to somehow determine the department of the user (perhaps based on a security role the user belongs to or a field on their user record) and then decide whether to hide the tab.

There is nothing in a security role that helps here.

That is what I thought. Thank you for the confirmation.
